Luis Suarez wasn't at his very best in Liverpool's 6-3 victory at Cardiff City on Saturday, and yet he somehow still managed to score three goals and add an assist.

The Uruguayan is having a phenomenal season, scoring almost at will, and he was at it again against Cardiff, proving that even when he doesn't bring his A-game, Suarez can still be decisive.

His constant movement in front of the defense opened up holes all over the back line, and with Cardiff twice grabbing the lead, the Reds once again needed their ace to come through in order to keep the club in the thick of the title chase.

Three goals and an assist did the job, with Martin Skrtel also bagging a brace and Sturridge finishing the job late.

As shared by Infostrada Sport, Suarez's second goal puts him in some very elite company:

Suarez might not have been at his very best, but as usual, he found a way to send fans into a frenzy. The Steven Gerrard fan page got things started:

Joe Ryer kept his comments simple, and perhaps said all that needed to be said:

With the win, the Reds keep track of league leaders Chelsea, who beat Arsenal 6-0 earlier in the day. Suarez and Liverpool will host Sunderland on Wednesday.
