Suárez takes Liverpool to the top

Luis Suárez took his tally for the season to 19 and sent Liverpool FC to the top of the English table, but Manchester City FC are hot on their heels following a win in London.

Liverpool FC moved to the top of the English table with a 3-1 victory against Cardiff City AFC, and Manchester City FC are second following a 4-2 success at Fulham FC.

The day after settling a contract extension at Anfield, Luis Suárez volleyed Liverpool's opener, set up Raheem Sterling for their second and produced another stylish finish to make it 3-0 by half-time in the early Premier League game, with Jordon Mutch reducing the arrears for Cardiff after the interval. City, meanwhile, showed a sense of drama, squandering a 2-0 half-time lead in west London, before goals in the final 20 minutes from Jesús Navas and James Milner secured the three points.

Manchester United FC cruised to a 3-1 victory at home against West Ham United FC, but Newcastle United FC remain just above the Red Devils in the table following a 3-0 triumph at struggling Crystal Palace FC. Elsewhere, Peter Crouch's goal allowed Stoke City FC to beat Aston Villa FC 2-1, Hull City AFC drew 1-1 at West Bromwich Albion FC and rock-bottom Sunderland AFC were held 0-0 at home against Norwich City FC.
