Liverpool title challenge still on, believes Suarez

Luis Suarez believes Liverpool can maintain their Premier League title challenge, Sky Sports has reported, despite the forward admitting he is feeling the pressure of being around the top of the table.

Following their defeat to Arsenal on Saturday, Liverpool are in third place, five points adrift of the Gunners, and Suarez feels they can push Arsene Wenger’s side all the way – despite the focus falling on Anfield. “The expectation is huge,” Suarez told French radio station RMC.

This season we started well, with the desire and hope,” Suarez added. “We do not have to compete in the European Cup which allows us to concentrate 100 per cent on the championship. The Premier League is very tight this season and anything can happen against anyone.

Suarez added that he is feeling content with life on Merseyside and values the support of his club colleagues, despite spending much of the summer trying to engineer a move away from the club. “When I was separated (from the squad), the players told me they didn’t like that and wanted me to be with the group,” he said.

Today I feel very supported by my team-mates, and I appreciate their support. I feel part of things at Liverpool. It is my home. I am comfortable and happy here – I work hard for Liverpool and I will always be thankful to the club, and to my teammates.

Suarez has played six times for Liverpool this season after serving the last of his 10-game ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic, returning to action against Manchester United in the League Cup in September. He has scored six goals in that time, bagging a brace on his Premier League return at Sunderland, scoring once against Crystal Palace and claiming a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over West Bromwich Albion.
