Suarez rights off Liverpool chances

Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez has stated that it will be very difficult for his side to win the Premier League title due to the strength of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The Uruguay international has had a scintillating time at Anfield since moving from Ajax in January, but despite his form, and a 2-0 win over Everton at the weekend, he feels Liverpool cannot finish top of the pile.

“We have no limit and want to stay in the top four. But winning the Premier League is now very difficult. The main reason why it is so difficult is because the two Manchesters and Chelsea are unreachable. But we can win the cups,” he told Mirror Football.

Suarez scored one of the goals in the Merseyside derby victory on Saturday, and is quickly becoming a fans favourite, similar to others who have wore the number seven jersey for The Reds.

“I didn’t know the history of my No.7 shirt at Liverpool. I picked it because it was one of the few numbers available.

“Now that I know the story I am proud to wear the ‘7’ and I try not to feel the burden of its heritage,” he concluded.

Liverpool’s pedigree will be put to the test in their next game, as they host champions Manchester United at Anfield after the international break.
