Luis Suarez's scintillating form throughout December 2013 has been acknowledged by the Barclays Premier League, who have honoured the Uruguayan with their Player of the Month award.

The Reds' No.7 became the first man in Premier League history to net 10 goals in a calendar month as he cemented his place at the head of the league's goalscoring leaderboard throughout December.

His performances were nothing short of breath-taking, starting with a sensational four-goal haul against Norwich City during his side's 5-1 win at Anfield.

In the following match Suarez struck twice against West Ham United before skippering the Reds in the league for the first time in his career and notching two against Tottenham Hotspur in a stunning 5-0 win at White Hart Lane.

Cardiff City were the next side to feel his wrath as the 26-year-old conjured two more Goal of the Month contenders against the Bluebirds at Anfield to take his tally for the season to 19.

After collecting the prize, the forward told Sky Sports News: "It's so important when you work hard on the pitch and they recognise it when you win these prizes.

"On the pitch I try to help Liverpool and I try to help the squad, and I think for confidence it is very good. If Liverpool continue at this level we can finish in the top four, which we want."
