The 19-year-old forward has been part of the set-up at Anfield since 2010, but he has had to be patient in his efforts to earn senior recognition.

Brendan Rodgers has offered him first team opportunities since taking to the managerial hot-seat, and Suso has responded with a number of assured displays.

His potential has since been rewarded with a new contract and recognition from the Spain U21 side, and the talented teenager admits things could not have gone any better for him over recent months.

"I feel like I a dreaming right now," Suso told the Liverpool Echo.

"I couldn't have believed this would all happen in such a short period.

"Things have happened really quick for me. From being with the reserves, to playing for the first team in the Europa League and then playing in the Premier League.

"I am playing for the first team every game now and lining up with massive players every week - it's been brilliant."

Important

He added: "To get called up by Spain U21s was also special but the most important thing for me that has happened was signing the new contract.

"It means I'll be here for this season and two more after that. I always wanted to stay here and play for this club for a long time. Signing the contract was a great moment for me.

"This has been the best year ever for me so far. I hope it keeps going like this."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
