Suarez Liverpool 3

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is over the moon at the chance of playing Champions League football next season.

Liverpool are now on the verge of a first ever Premier League title - and as much as Brendan Rodgers wants to play down their chances they are five points clear and flying after beating Norwich City 3-2 at Carrow Road earlier today.

But the result also secured Liverpool another accolade … Champions League football.

The Reds are now mathematically assured of a top three finish - meaning they will go straight into the Champions League proper next season regardless of how they finish the campaign.

For one player that is obviously a big fillip.

Luis Suarez very nearly left the club last summer - after demanding he was allowed to talk to teams playing in the Champions League.

One such team was Arsenal - and he was at one point keen to leave - highlighting just how desperate he was to play in Europe’s premier club competition. No offence to Arsenal intended but Liverpool are certainly not an inferior club - Champions League football not included.

And Suarez was clearly pleased to have secured appearances in the Champions League next season - sharing this Tweet after the game…

And while we are at it we may as well look at the rest of the gang - who have been on Instagram and Twitter celebrating their five point lead and CL qualification…
