90
Two added minutes....

89
Nick Lamorte tells it how it is: "This match sums up Liverpool FC over the last 20 years....consistently inconsistent!"

85
Liverpool looking to add to their tally, but Enrique chooses wrong option.

83
Kone breaks for Wigan but has no support, and is forced into a foul.

81
Joe Allen is played in by Downing, pulls the trigger, but the ball is nicked off his toe.

77
Maloney fires a curling shot from a narrow angle, but once again Reina is there to beat the ball away.

76
Another cross into the box from thr Latics, but again nothing comes of it.

72
Maynor Figueroa sums it all up, blazing a shot way over the top from outside the box.

69
Jordan Henderson comes on in place of the impressive Philippe Coutinho.

66
Another strong save from Reina from a Maloney header. He even has the presence of mind to punch rebound clear.

65
Wigan enjoying a rare spell on the ball, with Shaun Maloney doing his best to instigate things.

63
Long ball forward searches out Suarez, but he can't latch onto the bouncing ball.

61
McManaman on in place of Beausejour

60
Procession at the moment for Liverpool, who are strolling around at ease.

59
McArthur is late into a challenge, and goes in the book.

55
Wigan looking threatening, putting a few crosses into the box, but they are easilly dealt with.

53
Liverpool starting to try the flicks and tricks as their fans seem in party mood! Wigan all over the place.

51
Caldwell and Di Santo off, Espinoza and Alcaraz on for Wigan.

49
GOAL!!! Wigan 0 Liverpool 4. Suarez. Hat-trick for the Uruguayan. Glenn Johnson rides several challenges, plays Suarez in, who has all the time in the world to pick his spot and put the Reds four up.

47
Slow start to half, but Wigan have to start to take the game to their opponents!

45
Second-half is underway. Neither side has made any changes.

Liverpool have been heavily backed in play to rout the Latics, with 5-0 being gobbled up by Sky Bet punters at 6/1 before the half-time whistle went. Impressive Reds midfielder Coutinho is enhanced to 15/2 to bag the next goal for Brendan Rodgers' men.

Matthew Hendry has been on touch via email: "Hi Pete, I'm sure you already know this but right now as this game stands liverpool have already this season scored 5 more goals than they did in the entirety of last season. I'm sure that is a good sign for the Brendan Rodgers regime! Onwards and upwards hopefully!"

Wigan 0 Liverpool 3. Suarez heads to the top of the Premier League scoring charts after his double here. Too easy for Liverpool.

45+2
Beausejour's effort is tipped over the bar by Reina, much easier than his other fine stops.

45+2

45
Two minutes added time...

45

43
Joe Allen receives first booking of the day.

42
Liverpool trying to walk it in at the moment, with Coutinho and Allen pulling the strings.

38
SAVE!!! Al Habsi this time keeps out a Suarez strike after poor defending from Boyce let the hitman in.

36
SAVE!!! Di Santo heads the ball goalward from six yards, but it is tipped over by Reina. Great reflexes from the Spaniard.

Danny Morris has been in touch via Twitter, describing Philippe Coutinho as a "Passmaster"!

34
GOAL!!! Wigan 0 Liverpool 3. Suarez. Bizarre third goal. Suarez free-kick is deflected off Shaun Maloney on the end of the Wigan wall, and beats Al Habsi, who will be disappointed having got two hands to it.

32
Free-kick to Liverpool right on the edge of the box, after foul on Suarez. Within his range.

31
Wigan players arguing amongst themselves at the moment. Roberto Martinez probably will want this half to end sooner rather than later!

28
Caldwell header from corner is straight at Reina. Better from the home side.

27
Boyce lumps the ball into the box, which finds Kone, but his volley is blocked.

25
Wigan are having better possession, but are losing out too cheaply in attack. Liverpool much more clinical.

22
Fighting in the Latics' ranks! Boyce and McArthur have to be separated by skipper Caldwell.

20
SAVE! Pepe Reina keeps Liverpool 2-0 up with a fine one-handed save when the ball seemed destined for the top corner.

16
Di Santo tries to barge his way through, but is brought down. Free-kick to Wigan.

14
Kone almost gets in behind the Liverpool backline, but Carragher is there to cut it out.

12
Coutinho breaks into the box, pulls it back for Allen, who is on his heels and can't quite reach the pass.

11
Enrique gets himself into a good position, but misplaces pass. Liverpool looking comfortable on the ball.

9
Joe Allen is put through by Suarez, but is adjudged to be offside.

8
Liverpool stroking the ball around with consumate ease at the moment. Gerrard at the heart of everything.

7
Kone dropping deep to try and influence the match. Not really happening so far.

5
Liverpool look in control so far. Wigan looking disjointed. Need to get into the game.

2
GOAL!!! Wigan 0 Liverpool 1. Downing. Coutinho has time and space to pick out his man, with Downing arriving on cue to head the Reds into an early lead.

1
Almost a blistering start from the Latics, as Kone finds space in the area after Jamie Carragher misses the header, but his touch his heavy!

1
We are underway...

Rafee Ahmed has been in touch via email: "Just have a feeling for Wigan winning today with Kone who has been sensational for them..LFC are a very average side now and anyone can beat them why not Wigan, hoping for some cracking goals from both sides...2-1 Wigan"

Wigan to win 2-1 is 12-1 and Liverpool to win 3-0 is 16/1 with Sky Bet. See the other Price Boosts here: http://www.skybet.com/football/premier-league/event/14932711

Can Wigan spring a surprise here? It's an attacking looking line-up... @Pistolpeteh86 or Pete.Hall@bskyb.com

Wigan XI: Al-Habsi, Scharner, Figueroa, Caldwell, Boyce, Beausejour, McCarthy, McArthur, Koné, Maloney, Di Santo.

Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Jose Enrique, Agger, Carragher, Lucas, Allen, Gerrard, Downing, Coutinho, Suarez

The teams are in....

Can the Premier League's top goalscorers in 2013 maintain their impressive form in front of goal? Is their too much expectation on the shoulders of Luis Suarez?
