He's a world class goalscorer and a world class creator. He does it all.
Do I need to point out that he leads Liverpool in both goals and assists this season? Are there any other strikers in the Premier League who can make that claim? I don't think there is.
Liverpool fans may not appreciate the following statement, but it needs to be said: Without Luis Suarez, Liverpool would be a very average team and likely would be closer to the bottom of the table than the top of it thus far this season.
Suarez has carried Liverpool thus far this season, just as he did last season after his arrival from Ajax. Without him they would have serious difficulties not just scoring goals, but also creating chances to score goals.
He was Liverpool's best player against Sunderland and scored their only goal. He changed the game against Arsenal after coming on and scored and caused both goals. He was in sparkling form against Bolton and created two goals while playing a part in the other.
Without him in the team you'd have to wonder how many of those seven points Liverpool would have accumulated. My guess is four, because I think they could still have drawn with Sunderland and beaten Bolton. But neither of those are particularly big achievements.
He was also the best player on the pitch in the defeat against Stoke. No Liverpool player came away from Spurs with any real credit, so that match should just be forgotten about. And he was, by some distance, the best player on the park against Wolves and went home that evening as the sole reason Liverpool came away with three points.
Ten points from six games is not a fantastic return for Liverpool, but without Suarez it would be far worse.
He is the only striker in the league currently carrying his team to this extent. Without Rooney, United still have the attacking options to be a top four team. Same goes for City without Aguero, and Chelsea without Torres.
Arguably the only two strikers with similar expectations on them are Adebayor at Spurs, who has a far greater supporting cast than Suarez, and Van Persie at Arsenal. Neither of them will be looked at as scorer and creator in chief for their teams to the extent Suarez will be at Liverpool though.
The return of Steven Gerrard will relieve some of the burden on the Uruguayan, although Liverpool fans might be wise to temper their expectations on Gerrard, who is returning from a long absence and can't be expected to display his top form immediately.
