LIVERPOOL defender Martin Skrtel believes Luis Suarez’s form is so good that every Premier League defender will have nightmares about facing him.
The Uruguayan striker’s double in last Saturday’s 3-0 win over Wigan took his tally for the season to 13 in all competitions.
“I face him every day in training so I know how hard it is to mark Suarez,” said Skrtel.
“The goal he scored against Newcastle recently was one of the best goals I’ve ever seen. He really showed his skills and his quality.
“I’m glad Luis is in our team and at this moment he’s the best striker in the Premier League.
“He’s playing well and scoring goals. Every defender in the Premier League must have nightmares about him.
“That’s good for us and we hope he can carry on like this. He can help us to get to where we want to be.”
After tonight’s Europa League clash with Young Boys at Anfield, the focus will turn to Sunday’s Premier League trip to Swansea City.
Skrtel believes the Reds’ seven-game unbeaten league run shows that things are starting to click – both personally and collectively.
“The start of the season wasn’t the best for me as I made a few mistakes, but I’ve tried to learn from that and in every game I try to do my best,” he added.
“With a new manager, we needed to learn the new tactical ideas. Now we’ve been together four months performances and results are better.
“We are seven games unbeaten in the league and we are doing really well. We need to carry on in this way.
“There isn’t a big gap between where we are now and where we want to be which is the top four. We will continue to work hard and we believe we can be in the top four.”
