Returning Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge send Liverpool second in EPL standings

Both sides threatened from early set-pieces, Keiren Westwood denying Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Sebastian Larsson rattling the visitors' bar, before the away side went ahead in contentious circumstances in the 28th minute with a Daniel Sturridge goal that appeared to go off his elbow.

London: Luis Suarez crowned his Premier League return with a brace as Liverpool won 3-1 at bottom club Sunderland on Sunday to climb to second place in the table.

Having completed a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic last season, Suarez scored in each half at the Stadium of Light as Liverpool ended a run of three games without victory.

Daniel Sturridge had given Liverpool the lead with his fifth goal of the season, with Emanuele Giaccherini replying for Sunderland early in the second half after Suarez had made it 2-0.
