Suarez's Uruguayan compatriot, and close-friend, Cavani feels that Suarez has taken himself to a new level this term.

Last summer, on the back of a lengthy ban and interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Arsenal, Suarez had demanded a move - but Liverpool stood firm and Suarez has since produced a supreme campaign.

And Paris Saint Germain ace Cavani admits that Suarez is in a great mood, and said: "I speak with Luis most weeks and he is loving life at Liverpool.

"When I speak with him now it sounds like a different man to that of last season. You can hear it in his voice how happy he is compared to last season.

"He has always loved Liverpool, things have not always gone well for him in England, and he told me how humbled he was by the way the club and the fans stood by him.

"All he wanted was to be at a team which matched his ambition, where he could play Champions League, and where he can compete for major trophies. Now Liverpool are in that place he is happy to stay."
