Jamie Carragher is convinced Luis Suarez is a Liverpool legend-in-the-making after he produced another mesmeric display in the 5-2 triumph over Fulham.

The Uruguayan tormented the Cottagers's rearguard throughout a one-sided encounter in the Capital, leading the Reds stalwart to wax lyrical about our new No.7.

"If he [Suarez] keeps playing like that I think he'll be a bigger legend than I'll ever be," said Carra.

"He looks a really top player, he plays for the team. It shows he's adaptable and versatile, he can do different jobs for the teams."

He added: "We've been flying since Christmas and that's credit to everyone involved.

"The manager's come in and made a big difference, whatever he's done has worked.

"Players coming in have made a huge difference as well, Suarez is superb.

"I hope I'm not getting too carried away here but I think the performances that he's showed have proved he's going to be a real player for Liverpool, not just between now and the end of season but for years to come."

Manchester United's win over Chelsea means they are on the verge of surpassing Liverpool's record of 18 league titles.

Carragher acknowledges the achievement but remains determined to rectify the situation next season.

He added: "If we want that record back or we want to win leagues ourselves we can't keep relying on other teams to stop Man United doing it.

"They're a great team and great club and you have to have respect for them.

"The only way of us getting back on top is winning titles not relying on others."
