Luis Suarez scores twice as Liverpool beat Sunderland 3-1 to go second in league table

London, Sept 30 (ANI): Premier League club Liverpool have beaten Sunderland 3-1 at the Stadium of Light after Luis Suarez scored twice to mark his league return.

According to Sky Sports, Liverpool broke the deadlock with a controversial goal in the first half as Daniel Sturridge turned the ball in with his arm, before Suarez quickly doubled their lead.

Emanuele Giaccherini reduced Sunderland's arrears on 52 minutes but, despite a spirited performance, Kevin Ball's men could not find an equaliser and Suarez netted again in the closing stages to lift Liverpool to within two points of leaders Arsenal, the report said.

The crowd spurred Sunderland on in the final 10 minutes and there were some tense times at the back for Liverpool before Suarez finally settled any nerves in the 89th minute with another finish from close range after good work by strike partner Sturridge on the break, the report added. (ANI)
