Liverpool fans are the best in the world, says youngster

Liverpool's Suso says that the club have the best supporters in the world.

Liverpool prospect Suso says that supporters of the Reds are the best in the world. 

The youngster made an appearance in the side's League Cup match against Middlesbrough last night and he said the atmosphere inside Anfield was incredible.

Liverpool eventually progressed against the Championship side after a mammoth penalty shoot-out and Suso has moved to show his gratitude to the fans of the club after the match. 

"We know that we have the best supporters in the Premier League and the world," he told the official site.

Suso was linked with a loan move away from Anfield this summer, but no deal materialised and he looks set to battle it for a place in the first-team.

The Spaniard is considered an excellent prospect by the Merseyside outfit, but he has struggled to get a sustained period of first team opportunities and time is running out for him to make an impact.

Liverpool have a number of exciting prospects coming through and, at the age of 20, Suso must begin to start showing the potential which made him such a star at youth-levels. 

He did his chances of breaking into the first-team no harm last night, either, as he scored the Reds' second goal of the match in extra-time. 

It was his first senior strike for the club, but the Spaniard was very modest about getting his name of the scoresheet after the match. 

"I came on and obviously I tried to do the best that I could," he said. "I was lucky to score the goal."

"The game was really good - we were keeping the ball, we were playing really well and having some chances as well."

Suso will be hoping that his strike did enough to force his way into contention for a place in the squad for the Merseyside derby at the weekend. 

Liverpool take on Everton looking to halt their poor run of form on Saturday and they know that they must begin to rack of the victories if they are to consolidate their position in the top four this season.
