Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing is delighted by the mayhem forward Luis Suarez is generating on the pitch.

The Uruguay international has made an immediate impact following his £22.8million January move from Ajax and in the last few matches has been the side's outstanding player.

"Not only is he scoring goals but he is creating them as well," Spearing told the Liverpool Echo. "We see what he can do every day in training and he's a pain to come up against. He takes that on to the pitch and causes mayhem for defenders and he's done that from the moment he came in."

He added: "Luis has shown what he's all about with the work ethic he puts in for the team and it's great to see.

"It's not about himself, he loves to set up other players. If he keeps doing that for the rest of this season and into next season we'll be looking good.

"His partnership with Andy Carroll is going to be very dangerous."
