ESPN FC: Bursting Liverpool's bubble

Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard have been named joint Premier League players of the month with Brendan Rodgers winning the the manager's award to make it a clean sweep for Liverpool.

The club won all five of their games in March to go top of the Premier League table, with Rodgers' side scoring 18 goals as they beat Southampton, Manchester United, Cardiff, Sunderland and Tottenham.

Suarez bagged six goals in those five games, including a hat-trick against Cardiff to cap an impressive 6-3 win, while club captain Gerrard scored fouls goals - including two penalties at Old Trafford in a convincing 3-0 victory - to put Liverpool within touching distance of their first league title in 24 years.

Liverpool are currently two points clear of second-placed Chelsea with five games to go, and face a vital game against third-placed Manchester City on Sunday.
