Suarez: Two-goal hero for Liverpool

Liverpool are one of six teams priced at 10/1 or less for the Barclays Premier League title with Sky Bet following their win at Sunderland.

Luis Suarez returned to Premier League action for Liverpool with two goals in a 3-1 win, but Sky Bet were at least spared a big payout on first goalscorer after a Price Boost from 4/1 to 11/2 on the Uruguayan breaking the deadlock was scuppered by man of the match Daniel Sturridge.

The Reds are 10/1 sixth favourites for the title behind Manchester City (23/10), Chelsea (3/1), Arsenal (4/1), Manchester United (7/1) and Tottenham (9/1).

Norwich are out to 100/30 to get relegated following their 1-0 win at Stoke, who were cut to 5/1 to go down to the Sky Bet Championship.

Jonny Howson's strike ensured a 1-0 victory for the Canaries, who were well backed by Sky Bet punters despite an average start to the campaign.

Sky Bet's Sandro Di Michele said: "Norwich and Liverpool were well backed on Super Sunday while Sturridge and Suarez scoring was a blow too as they're always popular in the goalscorer markets.

"We can't complain too much after our own Super Saturday when both Manchester clubs were beaten, a welcome boost following a run of weekends where many multiple bets obliged with plenty of odds-on shots getting the job done.

"It's still early days, of course, but the title race looks wide open as a book with six teams 10/1 or shorter suggests. Our football traders still think Manchester City are best equipped to win the league, but Arsenal are shortening every week and are now a season's-low 4/1 for title glory."

    e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

    arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

    e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
