Luis Suarez remained focussed on his contribution to the team after scoring a hat-trick in Liverpool’s 6-3 victory at Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.
Suarez was in sensational form again for Liverpool — his goals helping the Reds survive going behind twice to the Bluebirds during the first-half.
The pick of Suarez’s goals, his second, came on the hour mark when Daniel Sturridge back-heeled a delightful ball into Suarez’s path. The Uruguayan kept his composure and fired in Liverpool’s fourth of the afternoon.
Suarez then turned provider for Sturridge’s goal 15 minutes later, and had time to complete his hat-trick deep into injury time.
The Uruguayan international equalled Robbie Fowler’s record of 28 Premier League goals in a season, and with eight games to go, looks set break Alan Shearer (1995/96) and Cristiano Ronaldo’s (2007/08) record of 31 goals in a season.
After scoring his hat-trick and Liverpool’s victory, Suarez spoke to Sky Sports’ TV cameras, and was humble in his achievement.
He said, “It may be [his best form of his career], but I try my hardest on the pitch to work hard for the team.
“We have a really good squad and when you create chances on the pitch, I think you’re going to score goals.
“We know that it’s so difficult to win the title, but it’s better that we are concentrating on the next game — that’s the most important thing.”
Liverpool next face Sunderland at Anfield on Wednesday night. The Reds have the chance to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea to just one point, with Joe Mourinho’s men still to come to Anfield on April 27th.
