Luis Suarez was a peripheral figure for the team today. He helped the attack with his well-timed runs, quick thinking and a penalty. He started the game and got involved since the first touch, coming deep near the centre-circle to move the ball and stitch passes around. He made many darting runs towards the goal hoping for one successful long pass throughout the game but wasn't successful in that. His movement was brilliant as was his match awareness.

Suarez was involved in both the goals as he played a dummy during the first one, fooling the defenders around him which created ample space for Alena to take his time and place the ball into the corner. That dummy move was one for the books and was a real stroke of genius from the Uruguayan

Suarez later struck home the penalty which was awarded as the Alaves defender was caught handling the ball from an Ousmane Dembele corner. The penalty wasn't the greatest as it touched the tip of the goalkeeper and narrowly escaped from the side settling into the right-hand corner.

Suarez has been an important figure for the club throughout these years and performances like these is what keeps everyone at the club going.
