Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is convinced that Luis Suarez can break the Premier League scoring record this season.
Andy Cole (1993-94) and Alan Shearer (1994-95) hold the distinction of netting 34 times, but they achieved that feat when a Premier League season was 42 games.
Shearer (1995-96) and Cristiano Ronaldo (2007-08), meanwhile, set the bar at 31 goals in a 38-game campaign.
“He looks like he can score a hat-trick in every game, doesn’t he?” said Rodgers.
“He can do, because he has got that quality. He will certainly push it close.
“You can put him in that bracket of world class. I think one or two of his off-field antics have maybe detracted from his performance level, but you see a different man now.
“He is mature. You see he is happy, confident and at peace with everything in his life on and off the field.
“Luis is just a brilliant player, a joy to work with. He gives me everything, every day of his life.”
