Manchester: Alex Ferguson said Luis Suarez was "no different to any other good player" before heaping praise on Robin van Persie ahead of Liverpool's visit to Manchester United on Sunday.

Van Persie has netted 16 league goals to help United open up a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table since joining from Arsenal in a £24 million ($38.7 million, 29.1 million euros) deal in August.

Despite Liverpool's stuttering league campaign, Suarez heads for Old Trafford only one goal behind van Persie in the Premier League scoring chart, but Ferguson says his players will not afford him special treatment.
