Rodgers: 'Suarez has more goals left in him'

Luis Suarez Free Kick V Zenit

Suarez scored his 30th league goal this season in Liverpool's win over Norwich City.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has issued a warning to the rest of the Premier League that Luis Suarez still has more goals in him.

Suarez scored his 30th goal of the season against Norwich City in yesterday’s 3-2 win, which helped the Reds extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.

Rodgers was full of praise for the Uruguayan – who missed the first five games of the season because of a ban.

Speaking after yesterday's win at Carrow Road, the Reds' boss said: “It’s 30 goals out of 96 so it shows you really that he’s an influential player, a world class talent. He’s a real talisman for our team but the team is about more than one player. It's a great achievement. As I said he’s got a few more goals left in him.”

The Uruguayan striker became the first Liverpool striker since Ian Rush in 1986 to notch up 30 goals in a league campaign, and could break Cristiano Ronaldo’s record at Manchester United in a 38 game campaign of 31.

Suarez has been instrumental in front of goal for the Reds this season ever since his return from suspension, as he has averaged a goal per game as the side looks set to break the 100 goal barrier this season.

The final three games take on a greater significance for Liverpool than perhaps first thought at the start of the season as they are so close to winning their first top flight title in 24 years.

They may need their talismanic striker to find the net again in the next few weeks to get Liverpool over the line.
