Jose Enrique claims Luis Suarez has become as important to Liverpool as Lionel Messi is to Barcelona.
Suarez is now considered to be a talismanic figure at Anfield, with Liverpool often looking to him for inspiration.
He has not disappointed this season, with a 29-goal haul offering the Reds hope in their efforts to secure a top-four finish and return to the UEFA Champions League.
Enrique concedes that Suarez is the man Brendan Rodgers' side will be relying on for the remainder of the campaign, with the Uruguay international having become as influential a figure on Merseyside as a fellow South American is in Catalunya.
"In the game all the time the first person I look for is him (Suarez) and he always makes a movement and I try to put the ball there and he does the rest," said Enrique.
"It is really easy to understand with him. He is our best player and he can do something from nothing.
"It's like at Barcelona - the first player they look for when the game is in a bad situation is Messi because you know he can do something.
"Luis is the same - I look for him because I know he can do something different and we understand each other."
