Suarez and Sturridge both on target for the Reds…
Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday after a 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace, while Manchester City climbed to third by beating Everton.
Luis Suarez was making his first Anfield appearance since completing a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last season and with new-born son Benja in attendance, he broke the deadlock in the 14th minute.
The goal showcased the Uruguayan’s flair for improvisation, as he hooked the ball into the net from a prone position after slipping as he shaped to shoot.
Top scorer Daniel Sturridge added a second three minutes later, turning Damien Delaney inside out before lashing home his fifth league goal of the season.
Captain Steven Gerrard made it 3-0 with a 38th-minute penalty, taking his tally of Premier League goals to 99, before substitute Dwight Gayle replied for the visitors with a late glancing header.
Victory took Brendan Rodgers’s side a point clear of Arsenal, who can reclaim top spot if they win at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
