Luis Suarez has urged Liverpool to “stay calm” in the Premier League title race.

The Reds were handed a boost on Wednesday night after third-placed Manchester City were held to a 2-2 draw by Sunderland at The Etihad.

Winning the title would be very special but we can’t think about that yet

Liverpool are two points clear of second-placed Chelsea and a further six ahead of Manuel Pellegrini’s side, who have a game in hand.

Brendan Rodgers’s make the trip to Norwich City on Sunday, with Suarez scoring 10 goals in his last four games against the Canaries.

“It’s normal for the supporters to get excited and be discussing our chances,” Suarez said.

“When I’m out shopping or out with my family I bump into fans who mention it to me. I’ve told them to stay calm and not to worry. We’ll be trying our best.

“For the players it’s probably best if we don’t get involved in that kind of talk.

“Personally, I think that if I don’t watch TV, listen to the radio or read about us on the internet it’s better. I know what the situation is.

“Winning the title would be very special but we can’t think about that yet.

“There is no point in looking at other games or what might happen in a week or two weeks. For us it’s always about the next game.”
