Liverpool claimed 34 points from 18 Premier League matches after Kenny Dalglish replaced Roy Hodgson as manager in early January.
If that points-to-games ratio had been produced from the beginning of the season Liverpool would have finished with the same tally (71) as second-placed Chelsea.
"I think the form we showed over the second half of the season bodes well," Suarez - a £22.8 million January signing from Ajax - told LFC Weekly.
"We've been playing well and I think we've been getting into the type of form that we know we'll have to keep up for a whole season if we want to be title contenders.
"This is something we're optimistic about for next season and if we can hit the ground running and maintain the good form then I think we've got a good chance of doing well."
