Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says that Steven Gerrard deserves to take home the Player of the Month award that the pair won jointly.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez believes that his teammate Steven Gerrard deserves to take home the Premier League Player of the Month award after they jointly scooped the honour.

As well as the duo's award, boss Brendan Rodgers was named as Manager of the Month following an unbeaten run in March.

"This prize is more important for Stevie," Suarez told the club's official website. "I spoke with him about what we're going to do with one prize because we've both won player of the month, but it's for him for all he's done in his career.

"It's important because in the last few games, he's scored important goals. All of the players have tried their best on the pitch and if you have a really good team and squad on the pitch, you have a chance."

Liverpool are currently at the top of the league table with a two-point lead over Chelsea.

On Sunday, the Merseyside outfit will take on title challengers Manchester City, who have two games in hand, at Anfield.
