Although their performances have been good enough for third place in the Barclays Premier League so far this season, Luis Suarez claims Liverpool's best form is still to come in 2013-14.

The Uruguayan has seamlessly carried his form into the new campaign, quickly notching six goals in five league appearances since returning from suspension back in September.

With strike partner Daniel Sturridge leading the division's scoring charts too, the Reds have remained within the upper reaches of the table since the opening day.

Nevertheless, the Liverpool No.7 has warned that further improvement is on the horizon at Anfield.

He told Match magazine: "We're doing well right now but we need to carry on that form into the Christmas period.

"I think our best is yet to come, which hopefully means well for the end of the season and our chances of making next season's Champions League. That's one of our aims.

"It's good to be playing well and contributing with goals, but the most important thing is getting three points every week. I wouldn't be scoring without the help of my teammates, so thanks to them."

The highlight of Suarez's season so far was undoubtedly the remarkable hat-trick he tallied against West Bromwich Albion last month.

A solo dribble, nutmeg and accurate finish to open the scoring was followed by two headers of unerring power and precision to complete a high-class treble.


Reflecting on the match, he added: "Cissokho's cross was at the perfect height and pace, so I just had to make a good connection and direct it in.

"It might have gone wide on another day, but it was nice to score a good header like that. My third goal was down to another quality cross from Steven Gerrard, so again it's thanks to my teammates."

Sturridge recently described his tandem with Suarez as 'a beautiful thing' and the forward was keen to reciprocate praise for Liverpool's No.15.

He said: "He's a fantastic player and strike partner, and we get on very well.

"I hope we continue to score goals and win more awards, but it doesn't matter who gets the goals or awards as long as we keep winning games."
