Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez: Top of the league at Christmas

Anfield bosses fought tooth and nail to prevent Suarez joining Arsenal in the summer, and their stubbornness has been handsomely rewarded this season.

The striker missed five league games as he completed a ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic, but his 19 goals in 12 matches since returning are the main reason why Liverpool go into Christmas top of the table.

In an interview to be broadcast in full on Christmas Day, Gerrard said: "On current form he's the best player in the world.

"Lionel Messi's out injured and Cristiano Ronaldo's had a bit of an injury of late. Luis is the best player in the world right now.

"He's certainly the best striker out there, he's proving that with his minutes to goals ratio."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.
