Suarez shines in Reds win over Spurs

Luis Suarez edged the battle of the player of the year contenders after he scored and earned the match-winning penalty to eclipse Gareth Bale as Liverpool defeated Tottenham 3-2.

The Premier League's leading scorer drew first blood with his 29th of the season - and 22nd in the top flight - and, although his opposite number had a hand in both of Tottenham's goals, the Uruguay international had the last laugh by winning the late spot-kick from which Steven Gerrard scored.

Centre-back Jan Vertonghen had scored twice after Suarez had put the home side ahead only for calamitous misjudgements by Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to gift Stewart Downing the equaliser.
