London: Luis Suarez was on song again as Liverpool beat West Ham United 4-1 in the Premier League , sending them to second in the table.

According to the Mirror, Suarez`s header was the only clean goal and arrived with timely satisfaction for Liverpool as West Ham had brought them back to 2-1 and summoned a mini-revival.

Just when it seemed West Ham would reach half-time unscathed, they inadvertently handed Liverpool the lead, the report said.

Two minutes into the second half it was 2-0 as Mamadou Sakho met Gerrard`s superb free-kick at the far post but the wasted openings came back to give Liverpool a kick up the backside when Matt Jarvis headed Demel`s ball back into the goalmouth and Martin Skrtel poked the ball past the stranded Mignolet, the report added.

Suddenly Sam Allardyce`s side sniffed the improbable and the ever-alert Maiga almost equalised, but Suarez put an end to such thoughts, the report further said.
