Liverpool striker and Uruguay international, Luis Suarez, has been named as the FTBpro PFA Fan player of the month for January.
The award comes following Suarez’s outstanding performances for Liverpool throughout January in which he scored four goals and one assist to help keep Liverpool firmly in the race for Champions League football next season.
Suarez started the month with a goal during the 2-0 win over Hull at Anfield, and followed that up with a brace in the 5-3 victory over Stoke City. The Uruguayan then ended the month on a high, netting and assisting during Liverpool’s impressive 4-0 win over Merseyside rivals Everton.
It was an impressive month all round for Liverpool, as Suarez’s scintillating form rubbed off on the club as they embarked on a run of three wins from four in the Premier League during January- the only points they dropped were in the 2-2 draw at home to Aston Villa.
Suarez has been in outstanding form all season, having bagged 23 league goals already this season, with another 14 games left to add to that tally. He has also struck up a quite irresistible partnership with Daniel Sturridge upfront for Liverpool in recent weeks, with the pair wreaking havoc during the recent Merseyside Derby.
With a large proportion of games still to play in the league, Suarez will surely have one eye on breaking the Premier League record for most goals in a season, standing at 31 goals and jointly held by Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo.
With upcoming games during February including Arsenal, Fulham and Swansea, Liverpool will be hoping that their star man will maintain his current goal-scoring form.
