Luis Suarez says it does not matter about individual performances in these final stages of the season – only that Liverpool keep winning and chasing fifth place in the table.
Suarez again was given praise for his performance against the Geordies, but the Uruguayan international says that is irrelevant.
“It does not matter that I keep getting these man of the match awards,” he said. “All that matters is that we keep on winning games and going up the table.
“The Europa League is our objective. When I came I wanted to help Liverpool get there but when the second half of the season started it looked really difficult.
“But we have kept winning games, we have played really well and got some important victories, and we have just been hoping that Tottenham drop points.
“There are still three games left and we have to prepare ourselves really well to make sure we get all the points we can.
