Luis Suarez has his fair share of detractors and they’ll surely appreciate this goal celebration. It could break the internet. Against West Bromwich Albion, Liverpool got on the board early thanks to a beautiful goal from Suarez. He nutmegged an opponent, and put the ball in the goal just inside the far post. He ran towards the corner to celebrate and slid on his knees. He then made a curious gesture.
It was only his first goal of the half, later in the game he scored on a header off from the edge of the penalty box on a beautiful ball from Daniel Sturridge. Earlier in the week, Suarez told Liverpool’s official website that he was excited to play with Sturridge.
“We are trying for progression. He is 24 and I am 26, so we are trying our best to progress for the future of the club. We know in the last few seasons, Liverpool have been not been in the Champions League and we know we can help the team challenge for the top four.
“I am so happy because when you have a very good striker, and a very good partner, for defenders it is difficult because they have to give their attention to two players — not just one.
“If maybe two defenders come towards me, this creates space for Danny. This is important not just for me, but for the team and our confidence. He is a very good player. He had difficult moments at Chelsea and City, but this is a good time for him and I am so happy with him.”
