Brendan Rodgers has hailed Luis Suarez’s “exceptional” hat-trick in Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Saturday.

The Uruguay international has scored six goals in four games since the 26-year-old returned from a 10-game ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic in a 2-2 draw with Chelsea in April.

“I think the front two were brilliant,” said Rodgers, whose side are second in the Premier League table.

“Suarez’s goals were exceptional. He really exploited the space in front of their centre-halves.

“[For his first] he showed wonderful invention and creativity to nutmeg Olsson and then he took his shot really early.

“The second was a good team goal. We moved it well, the cross came in early and he guided the header in fantastically well. Then his third goal was from a great ball by Steven.

“He could have had more; he hit the crossbar and had some other opportunities in and around the area.

“I think it was his first hat-trick here at Anfield and you saw his commitment to the team and what we’re trying to do. It was a wonderful performance.

“Daniel Sturridge’s goal – you used to see goals like that here many years ago; top quality players scoring those types of goals, Kenny [Dalglish] and whatnot. That type of goal today was incredible.

“It was a great performance right the way through and very pleasing.”
