The talented Spaniard has netted some memorable strikes for the Academy side at U21 level during his time with the Reds, but his curled effort into the top corner at Deepdale was the first time he has registered a goal in the main XI.
He explained that it was a goal he has been waiting for. "It was a very nice moment for me," Suso told Liverpoolfc.com.
"I've been waiting a very long time to score a goal and I'm happy. The team put in a good performance and we have to be happy.
"I've been waiting so long now to score a goal for Liverpool. Last season while I was on loan in Spain I was watching Liverpool play on the TV and wanting to score a goal for them and now I've got one."
The No.30 has returned from a loan spell back in his homeland in La Liga with Almeria and is a man on a mission as he strives to prove to Brendan Rodgers that he deserves a chance in his first-team squad.
He added: "I really want to be here and play for Liverpool and I'm trying to do my best every day in training and show the manager what I'm capable of.
"I learned a lot during my loan spell and I was playing regular football. I'm not really a young player anymore so I've got more responsibilities now and I will work as hard as I can to try and get a chance."
Suso now has his eyes on impressing during the two-week tour of the USA that sees the Reds take part in the prestigious International Champions Cup.
"I'm looking forward to going with the lads on tour and it will be a great two weeks to play against some really good teams and we want to get to the final," said the 20-year-old.
"We are also excited to see all the Liverpool fans in America."
