Greatest No.7?

The number 7 shirt is an important symbol at Liverpool Football Club and over the years many of Anfield's finest players have donned it.

Now the lucky number seven falls to mercurial striker Luis Suarez who, with 63 goals in 101 Premier League appearances, has staked his claim to join the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Kevin Keegan and Peter Beardsley as one of the club's greats.

The Super Sunday panel were once again impressed with the 27-year-old in Liverpool's 3-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, where the league's leading assist-maker and goalscorer added another to the 24 goals he'd already struck this season.

Read on or watch the video above to hear the thoughts of our panel of experts on the Uruguayan and cast your vote in our greatest Liverpool No.7 poll.

SUAREZ THE GREATEST NO.7?

JAMIE REDKNAPP: "You talk about modern day forwards and Graeme (Souness) probably played with one of the best in Kenny Dalglish but that's Luis Suarez in the modern game. He's very difficult to mark. A lot of forwards want to play up the park but he's happy to come in to those midfield areas at all times. All game he has perpetual motion. The movement, the brightness, the sharpness of him - it's like he's three or four passes ahead of anyone else on the pitch. We watched Lionel Messi play this week and that ability to have the ball almost Velcro-ed to his foot is what he does and that is very, very similar to do what Luis Suarez can do."

JAMIE CARRAGHER: "He's the stand-out player in the division. I think he's going to get the Player of the Year award, it's now whether he can take Liverpool to the title like Robin van Persie did last season."

GRAEME SOUNESS: "Kenny Dalglish did it over a very long time. He's got that will to win and he gets angry with other players. Everything I see about him I like because he's a got a never-say-die attitude and I think it's infectious. I think he makes other people play and is as upset with himself as he is with his team mates. I imagine he's fabulous in training everyday - which Kenny certainly wasn't, I bet falls out with people every day - which Kenny certainly did. There are similarities but will it be over as long a period a time as Kenny? We'll have to wait and see."

PAUL MERSON: "For me he's the best in the Premier League, he just makes things happen. Liverpool could let in two goals a game from now until the end of the season and they'll probably win eight of them because they score goals. He's a different class, if they win it, it will be down to Luis Suarez."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
