Wigan: Luis Suarez improved his tally for the Premier League season to 21 goals and helped Liverpool climb to seventh place with a hat-trick in a breezy 4-0 win at Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

Stewart Downing's headed opener put Liverpool in front inside two minutes and Suarez struck twice before half-time and then early in the second half to pull in front of Manchester United's Robin van Persie in the top scorers chart.

Liverpool now lie just five points below the European qualifying berths, although fifth-place Arsenal have a game in hand at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
