Jamie Carragher believes that his former Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez is one of the top five players in the world.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes that Luis Suarez is one of the top five players in world football.

The Reds striker took his tally to 13 for the season with his four-goal haul in Wednesday night's 5-1 win against Norwich City, and the Uruguayan's former teammate rates him as one of the planet's finest.

"Luis Suarez proved once again in midweek why he is in the top five players in world football with four goals against Norwich," Carragher told the Daily Mail.

"Luis keeps doing this [nutmeg] trick but he is so good at it, defenders can't stop him.

"You think you are about to tackle him but he pushes the ball through your legs and you are left in a heap on the floor. I lost count how many times he did it to me in training."

Suarez also claimed an assist in the win against the Hammers, setting up Raheem Sterling for the fifth goal.
