Brendan Rodgers heaped praise on “star talent” Luis Suarez after Liverpool’s “outstanding” victory over struggling Fulham at Anfield.

The Reds were 3-0 up within the opening 36 minutes thanks to Fernando Amorebieta’s own goal and a Martin Skrtel header, whilst Suarez continued his scoring run before half-time.

The Uruguay international netted his eighth goal since returning from a 10-game ban midway through the second half as Liverpool closed the gap on leaders Arsenal to two points.

“Our appetite for the game was outstanding. Luis Suarez is a star talent but his core ingredient is his work-rate, which is something we’re trying to have throughout the team,” Rodgers told BBC Sport.

Rodgers also hailed his captain Steven Gerrard after the talismanic midfielder played a role in three of Liverpool’s four goals at Anfield.

“He covers and presses and is a good talisman,” the Reds boss continued.

The Liverpool manager praised the Reds for capitalising on their home advantage against beleaguered Fulham outfit as the Merseyside outfit made it 11 goals in their last three games at Anfield.

“Our quality was very good. At half-time I said I wanted us to be relentless, to keep pushing. But our intensity was outstanding after the first whistle.

“We saw today as a very important game, and we made an excellent start. Home games are important, so it was a good victory for us.”
