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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
