Premier League – All the goals in 90 seconds
Luis Suarez took just 16 minutes to make his impact on Anfield as the £22.8 million striker came off the bench to score Liverpool’s second goal in a 2-0 Premier League win over Stoke City at Anfield.
After Raul Meireles‘s 47th-minute opener the Uruguay striker, a deadline day capture from Ajax Amsterdam, joined the fray in the 63rd minute and tucked in the second goal to secure seventh-placed Liverpool’s third successive win and take them within two points of Sunderland.
It was a bad night for Manchester City as they could draw 2-2 only at Birmingham City. Tottenham Hotspur gained ground as Peter Crouch‘s early goal earned them a 1-0 win at Blackburn Rovers.
Manchester United, who beat Aston Villa 3-1 on Tuesday, lead the way with 54 points, five ahead of Arsenal. Manchester City have 46, Chelsea 44 and Spurs 41.
At the other end of the table, West Ham United, helped by a goal by loan signing Robbie Keane, won 3-1 at Blackpool to climb off the bottom.
Daniel Sturridge, another deadline day loan from Chelsea to Bolton Wanderers, scored the only goal in stoppage time to earn his new club a home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
