Captain Suarez leads from front in Reds romp

LUIS Suarez and his Liverpool teammates ensured it was a miserable weekend for north London sides in the Premier League after he scored twice in the Reds' stunning 5-0 win at Tottenham.

Suarez (pictured), made captain in Steven Gerrard's absence through injury, led his team to its biggest win at White Hart Lane.

The Uruguayan opened the scoring in the 18th minute before bagging another six minutes from time to help inflict the worst home defeat in 16 years for Spurs.

The Reds are now second above Chelsea on goal difference, and just two points behind leader Arsenal

Suarez's double took his haul to 17 goals in the league this season, more than Spurs and nine other top-flight teams have managed in total. Elsewhere, Danny Welbeck scored twice as champion Manchester United won 3-0 at Aston Villa, while Norwich drew 1-1 with Swansea.
