Suárez rescues Liverpool in Newcastle stalemate

Luis Suárez levelled for Liverpool FC as the Reds fought back to earn a point against Newcastle United FC, after Queens Park Rangers FC and Reading FC had also shared a 1-1 draw.

Both of Sunday's Premier League games ended 1-1 as Liverpool FC drew with Newcastle United FC and Queens Park Rangers FC moved off the bottom of the table after their game against Reading FC.

After losing on their last seven visits to Anfield, it looked like Alan Pardew's Newcastle might be set to end that run with a win when Yohan Cabaye controlled Hatem Ben Arfa's cross at the back post before volleying past Brad Jones in the 43rd minute. However, the Reds fought back after the break, and Luis Suárez rounded Tim Krul midway through the second half to bring the scores level.

Fabricio Coloccini was shown red for a late challenge on Suárez as Liverpool pushed for the win, and the Uruguayan forward's deflected free-kick hit the crossbar late on. The spoils were nonetheless shared, meaning United remain three points and two places better off than 12th-placed Liverpool.

Earlier in the day, Kaspars Gorkšs put Reading ahead in the first half at Loftus Road before Djibril Cissé scored from close range in the 66th minute to earn a point for QPR. Mark Hughes' side remain without a league win but moved above Southampton FC into 19th on goal difference, a place behind Reading.
