Suarez was once again the hero for Liverpool on Sunday in their clash against Chelsea with a headed goal that allowed his side to leave Stamford Bridge with a point.
This is not the first time that Suarez has come to Liverpool's rescue this season and there have been accusations levelled at the Reds for being over-reliant on the 25-year-old.
Carragher however does not believe that being dependent on Suarez is a problem for the Reds given his world class talent and claimed the former Ajax player would be an even better player if he were surrounded by better teammates.
Speaking to The Sun, Carragher said: "People say we're dependent on Suarez, but Lionel Messi at Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid - every team will have a stand-out player, and Luis is one of them, not just in the Premier League but in the world.
"I've said for 12 months now that he's the best player in the Premier League, because he's maybe not playing alongside the kind of players that the Chelsea players can play alongside.
"He's one of the best players in world football and we are delighted to have him.
"There's always that question, I think being asked unfairly, of whether he scores enough goals. But isn't he the top scorer in the league at the moment?
"And that's in a team that hasn't won that many league games this season, don't forget."
Suarez has scored eight goals and provided two assists in 11 league games for Liverpool this season but even with his contributions, the Reds find themselves languishing in 13th place and they will undoubtedly be counting on their talismanic striker once again when they take on Wigan in their next league fixture.
