The forward believes the 10-game ban for nibbling Ivanovic has calmed the player down.
Liverpool knew Luis Saurez had a track record of controversy when they signed the attacker in 2011, but 10 matches for biting an opponent was surprising for most.
Suarez had been in superb form in 2012/13, netting 30 goals in all competitions, before deciding to bite Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in a moment of madness towards the end of last season.
The Uruguayan was slapped with a 10-match ban, which ebbed into the new campaign and meant that the 26-year-old has been limited to just three games so far.
Yet Suarez believes that time out to reflect was good for the forward and that the South American plays more calmly as a result.
“I am aware that in recent matches that I played I’ve been calmer,” the striker was quoted by the Telegraph.
“I am very self-critical and I realised that playing well, with more tranquility, is helping me a lot.”
Well it certainly seems to be doing the trick so far, as after a rusty return to the pitch against Manchester United in the League Cup, Suarez has bagged three goals in the last two Reds matches.
A brace against Sunderland and then another in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend, sees the Uruguay international heading into the international break seemingly back in form.
Along with Daniel Sturridge – who is the Premier League top-scorer with six strikes – the duo are forming a deadly attacking partnership that sees Brendan Rodgers’ side top of the table; level on points with leaders Arsenal.
