Luis Suarez: Awarded a second goal against West Ham

Luis Suarez: Awarded a second goal against West Ham

The Uruguay international's strike from distance took a deflection off Joey O'Brien and went down as an own goal by the defender.

However, the Premier League's dubious goals panel has now decided the goal should be credited to Suarez, who had already scored once in the game.

It takes the 26-year-old's tally in the league to 15 - three better than Manchester City's Sergio Aguero - and those goals have helped fire Liverpool into second place.

But Suarez has scored his in just 10 matches as he missed the first five games as a result of his suspension for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic being carried over into this season.

By contrast, Aguero's 12 have come in 14 league matches.

The Premier League panel also confirmed Liverpool's second goal in the West Ham game will be Mamadou Sakho's first for the club despite Martin Skrtel insisting afterwards he had got the final touch.

Suarez is set to face England at the 2014 World Cup and former Liverpool player and manager Kenny Dalglish, who signed the striker from Ajax in January 2011 for £22.85million in his second spell as Reds boss, believes he will terrorise England defenders at next summer's tournament.

"I would have thought that when the World Cup draw was made there were a few English defenders thinking 'Oh no, I've got to play him again - it's bad enough twice during the season'," he told liverpoolfc.com.

"You couldn't write the script. People glossed over the second goal he scored against Norwich because of the brilliance of the other three, but the technique for the second goal was fantastic as well.

"Luis has been fantastic. He's a great entertainer and he's a humble guy.

"He's somebody that really enjoys working in training, he is never a problem in training and he's fantastic on the pitch.

"It's a real joy to see him play sometimes. The goals he has scored have been hugely influential on the position that Liverpool are holding in the league at the moment."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
