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."

    he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

    lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
