Luis Suarez awarded extra Premier League goal

Published 1 Comments

Luis Suarez has been awarded an extra goal after the decision to rule Liverpool's fourth against West Ham as a Joey O'Brien own goal was overturned by a Premier League panel.

The Uruguayan's shot struck O'Brien on its way into the net during Saturday's 4-1 victory at Anfield and had initially been credited as an own goal by the Hammers full-back.

However, the dubious goals panel has now decided that it should be credited to Suarez, who now has now scored 15 times in only 10 appearances for Liverpool so far this season.

Suarez has been in irrepressible form for Liverpool since his return from suspension, with six of his goals coming in his last two appearances for the Reds. The 26-year-old scored four times against Norwich last week, before he was upgraded to a brace against West Ham.

This recent haul propelled Suarez above Manchester City's Sergio Aguero in the Premier League's scoring charts, with the former having found the net on three more occasions than the Argentina international.

Liverpool teammate Daniel Sturridge is placed third, having scored nine times, although the England international will be unable to add to this tally for some time given his expected absence until the New Year.
