The Most Important Player In The League


There is no doubt that so far this season Luis Suarez is the most important player in the Premiership to date. His form has been incredible for Liverpool this season and it has been greatly needed, with Liverpool’s striking problems.


Liverpool have left themselves in a ridiculous position with very few striking options. Luis Suarez is the only recognised striker they have at the moment, with new signing Fabio Borini out with a long term injury, and a bunch of kids as the only other option.


But Suarez has stepped up to the plate at Anfield in incredible fashion with his form since the start of the season. Many experts have doubted his finishing, but he finds himself top of the Premiership scoring charts after another brace at the weekend in the 3-0 win over Wigan, and a total of 13 goals in all competitions this season.


Suarez has had a tough time in England for his style of play, from the media, to opposing managers and referees. Suarez has been labelled a “diver” for going down too easily when challenged, but this is unfair when so many players do the same, just look at Everton’s Phil Neville the other week in the Merseyside derby, but he doesn’t get called a “diver” for his actions.


The “rascist” affair with Evra last season was another difficult period for Suarez as he was banned for 8 matches.


But opposing managers’ comments on Suarez is out of order and they should be punished for their comments. It seems like every week someone has something critical to say about the Uruguayan, from Sir Alex, to Tony Pulis, to Roberto Martinez who highlighted his “stamp” on one of his players on Saturday.


Every move Suarez does is scrutinised but these comments made by managers are influencing referees as we have seen already this season, which have led to ironic cheers from the Anfield faithful when Suarez is awarded a free-kick.


But with all this constant attention surrounding Suarez, he has kept his head down and did what he does best by causing opposing defenders havoc and putting the ball in the net.


His importance to Liverpool is obvious and he is Liverpool’s best player just about every week. Without his goals Liverpool would be languishing in the bottom 4 of the Premiership , so that fact alone highlights his importance to the team.


There are other players in the league who have started the season very well, the likes of Van Persie who has been finding the net on a regular basis for new club Manchester United, but he has a lot of support and help around him, where Suarez as mentioned earlier is Liverpool’s only striker, so this makes his form and goals far more impressively important.


Suarez is thriving on the responsibility placed upon him at Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers has stated that he would like to build his team around him. Suarez has also said that he loves life at Liverpool which is music to the ears of every Kopite, especially after recent speculation of Manchester City showing a strong interest in his talents.


With the form of Suarez and the improvement of results at Liverpool, who are on a 7 match unbeaten league run at the moment, and the prospect of new arrivals in January, the future is looking a lot brighter for Liverpool.

    Statistically, it’s more like Leighton Baines. Sorry.
