Luis Suarez feels the signs are positive for Liverpool and is keen to play a big part in the Brendan Rodgers revolution.

Liverpool made a slow start to life under Rodgers, but they have been quietly impressive in recent weeks - and a 4-0 win over Fulham at the weekend took them up to eighth in the Premier League.

Suarez has led the line superbly for Liverpool, scoring 11 goals in 17 Premier League games this term, and he is relishing his role as the focal point of Rodgers' attack.

"The manager and I have mutual confidence in each other," Suarez told Sky Sports News. "I am really enjoying the style of play. It suits my game."

Suarez has been linked with a move to Italian side Juventus, but the Uruguayan has no intention of turning his back on Liverpool.

He said: "I am very happy here at the club; I could not be happier. I have always dreamt of being at Liverpool. It is like a dream for me.

"It is a fantastic league to play in, we have a blend of youth and experience and I think we have a promising future."
