Jamie Carragher has compared in-form Luis Suarez to some of Liverpool’s iconic strikers and pledged that he would not swap the Uruguayan for anyone else in the division. A brace against Wigan Athletic on Saturday took Suarez’s tally to 13 goals in all competitions so far this season and elevated the No. 7 to the top of the Barclays Premier League scoring charts with 10. With 34 goals in 69 games in total since his arrival from Ajax almost two years ago, Suarez has now established himself alongside his vaunted predecessors, according to Carragher. “He is definitely right up there,” said the 34-year-old, who can count three of the Reds’ top 10 goalscorers of all time among his teammates past and present. “I can only talk about the players I’ve played with: [Robbie] Fowler, [Michael] Owen, [Fernando] Torres, and I think he comes pretty close to that list.” That Suarez has produced such scintillating form at a time of transition for the side following the appointment of Brendan Rodgers during the summer, only enhances the achievement in Carragher’s view. “For him to do what he is doing in a side that is still building under the new manager, I wouldn’t swap him for anyone in the Premier League,” he added. “I think what he does in our team and what he gives us no other player really could.”
