Not content with three points, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has now entered his name in the Premier League history books following the Reds’ 5-1 win at Anfield against Norwich. The visitors were stunned and completely undone by the Uruguayan hitman who now has an incredible 13 goals in just 9 league appearances following his five-game suspension at the start of the season.
Suarez’ talent is known worldwide but his level of consistency to maintain such a high, impeccably unbelievably high level of quality and work-rate puts him, in my estimation, up there with the Liverpool greats but, more than that, the Premier League greats.
We remember the likes of Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, Matt Le Tissier, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dennis Bergkamp, Alan Shearer, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and, of course, Steven Gerrard for making the English top tier what is. Their passion, their quality as players but, more than that, their appetite for the game and Suarez has that in abundance.
His four goals against Norwich City means he becomes the first player to score three hat-tricks (plus the fourth) against the same team in Premier League history. He scored four on Wednesday, a hat-trick on September 29th 2012, and another hat-trick on April 28th 2012 making it three hat-tricks (or more) in three seasons on the trot against the Canaries cementing his place in history as one of the all time Premier League and Liverpool greats, as well as the three points, of course.
