The Luis Suarez juggernaut rolled on to help Liverpool emphatically thump Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane to regain 2nd spot in arguably the most exciting Premier League season ever. With the talismanic Reds captain Steven Gerrard out of the side due to injury, Suarez starred as stand-in skipper, scoring his 16th and 17th goals of the season and also assisted the other three goals as the Merseyside club ran the home side ragged throughout the game and came away with an incredible 5-0 result, albeit against 10 men.

Lucas Leiva returned to the side and took Gerrard’s place as the away side named an otherwise unchanged team. Roberto Soldado took back his place as the lone forward for Spurs after his midweek hattrick in the Europa League, but the home side’s defensive injury woes saw Etienne Capoue having to start at center-back with Sandro and Moussa Dembele offering midfield support.

After earning the wrath of many Liverpool fans and disappointing them with his antics over the summer transfer window, Luis Suarez may make a sensational U-turn by committing his future to Liverpool and renew his contract, according to the Daily Mirror. Rumours have it that Suarez may even be named captain in the Anfield side's game against Tottenham on Sunday, following Steven Gerrard’s hamstring injury as Liverpool look to please the player who is virtually carrying the team.

The star forward has already won back the Kop with his 15 goal return after resuming duties following his bite-ban. The controversial Uruguayan, who has 2 and a half years left on his existing contract will surely gain huge financial rewards if he renews his contract. His current wages of £120,000 a week may be increased by upto 50% so as to ward off interest from other clubs.

The young playmaker also praised the Reds for their recent performances by saying that the team deserve to play in the Champions League and so does the Uruguayan. Wilshere also praised the duo of Suarez and Daniel Sturridge for their chemistry, which has made them quite a lethal attacking unit, but remained confident that the Gunners could repel anything SAS threw at them this evening.

Real Madrid are set to test Liverpool’s resolve by offering them a bumper combination of £20m plus Karim Benzema in exchange for Uruguayan ace Luis Suarez, according to reports in The Daily Star.

The Spanish giants have showcased a keen interest in Suarez since quite some time now, with the player himself believed to be vying for a move to the Santiago Bernabeu. Los Blancos forward Karim Benzema has failed to hit top form this season and despite reports of manager Carlo Ancelotti interested in sticking with him in the times to come, reports doing the round are that of the club using him as bait to land Suarez.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is convinced that wantaway forward Luis Suarez will stay put at the club even after the end of the season.

The Northern Irishman was quoted in The Metro, saying: “I think he, like ourselves, wants to be at the very highest level he can be. And you can see by his performances he deserves to be looking at that level. But it also shows he has been excellent in his attitude, you see his work rate – that is the key. For me, this is the place for Luis.”

Liverpool nudged Arsenal out of top spot in the Barclays Premier League table for 24 hours at the very least with a dominant first half performance against lowly Crystal Palace to register a comfortable 3-1 win. Early goals from Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge put Liverpool well on the road to victory, and when Steven Gerrard tucked away a controversially awarded penalty in the 38th minute, a rout looked to be on the cards.

Victor Moses struck the woodwork and Liverpool had more a few decent chances to add to the scoreline in the first half, but Julian Speroni to his credit prevented the scoreline from getting embarrassing for the visitors to Anfield.
