Manager Brendan Rodgers believes the 26-year-old is the happiest he has been at the club and that was certainly the case on Wednesday as he left the ground clutching the match ball after another stunning performance.

Suarez scored four and provided the cross for Raheem Sterling's late effort in the 5-1 win over Norwich.

Only four months ago Suarez wanted to leave to play Champions League football but with Liverpool in the top four and only three points behind second-placed Chelsea he is keen to maintain that form.

And with fellow striker Daniel Sturridge out until possibly the middle of next month Suarez is happy to shoulder the goalscoring burden.

"I think we can achieve what we set out to do," the Uruguayan, who became the first Premier League player to score three hat-tricks against the same side, told Marca when asked about their Champions League chances.

"My aim is just to help make the team better. My job is just to score the goals that mean we keep winning games and get as high in the table as possible.

"I am happy to be in the Premier League, the best league there is. I am happy here and I will stay.

"I don't know about challenging for the title, but we want to be as high up in the table as possible and do as well as we can. I think we can achieve our target."

Suarez has now scored 51 league goals in 84 appearances and is also the Premier League's leading scorer with 13 in just nine games.

However, he said the most significant thing was for the team to bounce back from Sunday's disappointing defeat at Hull.

"It was most important we won. I helped the team and I am so happy," he told LFC TV.

"It is good for me but for the club it is important for confidence for the next game.

"It is very important because we lost the last game and played very badly. We know when you play at home you have to be strong."
