Liverpool 3 Crystal Palace 1: Suarez Scores On His Return to Anfield.

Suarez marked his return to Anfield since April with a first-half opening goal for coach Brendan Rodgers’ side against Crystal Palace.

Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerarrd got Liverpool’s second and third goal while Dwight Gayle netted a consolation goal for ‘The Eagles’.

After a good work by Victor Moses, Suarez passed to the overlapping Jose Enrique and then collected his return ball to fire in from 12 yards despite falling over.

Ian Holloway’s men were two-goal down withing three minutes of conceding when Jose Enrique’s long pass was headed onto Sturridge, who turned Damien Delaney before finishing into the bottom corner.

Palace went further behind when Dean Moxey tugged at Raheem Sterlin’s arm and, although contact was on the edge of the area, referee Anthony Taylor signaled a spot kick after advice from his assistant.
