The Uruguayan took his tally for the season to six, two behind strike partner Daniel Sturridge after he too found the net in what was an impressive display from the Reds.

Suarez now heads the betting at 3/1 with Boylesports, despite 5/1 chance Robin van Persie scoring in Manchester United's come-from-behind 3-2 win against Stoke.

BetVictor's 7/1 about Sturridge means he's fourth favourite, with Sergio Aguero - alongside Suarez on six - a 13/2 chance with Sky Bet and 6/1 generally.

Although the market centres around these four players, both Olivier Giroud and Romelu Lukaku continued their fine runs of form and can now be backed at 12/1.

There was little change to the title betting with Arsenal generally 9/2 and Liverpool still just in front of United, with the pair 8/1 and 10/1 (Boylesports) respectively.

At the other end of the table, Cardiff are 9/4 for relegation after their 0-0 draw with 3/1 chances Norwich. That market continues to be headed by Crystal Palace at 1/10, with Sunderland the only other side trading at odds-on.

Fulham are no bigger than the 4/1 offered by BetVictor and Paddy Power after they produced a lifeless display at Southampton, who ran out convincing 2-0 winners. Saints are now just 25/1 for a top-four finish and no bigger than 11/2 (BetVictor) to end the season inside the top six.

It was a result which piled further pressure on Martin Jol, who Sky Bet make 2/1 to be the next Premier League manager out of a job.
