Chelsea come into Anfield trailing hosts Liverpool by five points in the Premier League table. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers praised leading scorer Luis Suarez and his maturity since the biting incident against Chelsea last year.
“He is a brilliant talent. I think the supporters have seen him mature over the course of the last season,” said Rodgers.
“I think he was in a real low moment after that game but he has gone away and probably looked in the mirror and reflected on himself because he is not that type of guy and it probably just spilled over.
“He is a really intelligent man who fits the values of this club, which is all about humility, class and he has all of that.
“He is a sheer winner and that probably overspilled last year, but his development over the last year has been remarkable both on and off the field and Liverpool have benefited from that.
“For me he is the consistently outstanding player over the course of the last year.”
