Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has claimed that teammate Luis Suarez is his player of the season.

The Uruguayan striker has scored 23 goals in 36 games for the Merseysiders since August.

"For me he's been player of the year, across this league and a lot more leagues," Gerrard told BBC Sport.

"There are probably only one or two people who you could say have been better than him this season."

Liverpool return to action on Thursday night when they will look to overcome a 2-0 deficit against Zenit St Petersburg at Anfield in the second leg of their Europa League last-32 encounter.
