Liverpool vs Crystal Palace 3-1 Highlights 2013 Suarez Sturridge Gerrard Goal Video

Luis Suarez scored on his first outing at Anfield since his 10-match ban for biting as Liverpool moved top of the Premier League table with a 3-1 dismissal of Crystal Palace.

Suarez was last seen in front of the home fans during his infamous biting incident involving Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in April, but the Uruguayan forward – who unusually paraded his new born baby Benjamin to fans before the contest – showed relegation-threatened Palace who is the daddy with a fine contribution amid a rich return.
Suarez’s appetite for a summer move away from the club seemed a long time ago as he opened the scoring on 13 minutes when he slipped but somehow threw out a boot to poke Jose Enrique’s cross into the corner of the opposition net on 13 minutes.
Daniel Sturridge turned Damien Delaney inside out after cutting in from out wide before thumping a powerful shot beyond Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni four minutes later.
Captain Steven Gerrard scored his first goal of the season from the penalty spot on 38 minutes after an assistant referee had deemed Dean Moxey to have pulled back Raheem Sterling inside the home area when any contact looked to have been outside.
Liverpool’s lack of intensity was obvious in the second half as Dwight Gayle headed a consolation for the visiting side on 76 minutes, but not much will worry Liverpool, who occupy their highest league position at this stage of the season since 1996.
