Luis Suarez take Liverpool win!

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was the villain in the eyes of Everton fans after he was involved in the sending-off of Jack Rodwell before scoring the... second goal in a controversial 2-0 derby victory. The Uruguay international was berated as a cheat by the majority of Goodison Park - and appeared to have a coin thrown at him - after making the most of Rodwell's sliding tackle midway through the first half. He also won a penalty - which Dirk Kuyt missed - to add to his growing reputation as Mr Unpopular with the Blue half of Merseyside. Suarez, and the performance of referee Martin Atkinson, somewhat overshadowed Andy Carroll's first Premier League goal of the season. His strike was the breakthrough and set his side on the way to victory which Everton had worked so hard for so long to deny their visitors.

Liverpool improved to 13 points, level with third-place Chelsea which plays at Bolton on Sunday.
Dalglish returned to Goodison for the first time since the two rivals drew 4-4 in the FA Cup in 1991. Dalglish resigned after that match. “Until they lost a man it was even,” said Dalglish, whose side received a boost from Rodwell’s red card despite the midfielder having played the ball first. “Sometimes the extra man works against you and sometimes it works in your favor. We kept our patience and we are delighted with the result.” This match has gained a reputation for being the 'friendly derby' over recent years. It was definitely not on this occasion.
