It’s a pulsating clash at Anfield and now the home side have the lead with three quick-fire goals for Liverpool.

After plenty of chances for both teams Liverpool had more efforts on goal but an anxious home crowd seemed wary whenever the Toffees surged forward.

But all those nerves dissipated when captain fantastic Steven Gerrard hammered home a header into from a fizzing corner from Suarez in the 21st minute to send Anfield wild.  Suarez was getting lambasted by the Everton fans before the corner kick in front of the away supporters… but he soon had the last laugh.

    Fantastic start! Sturridge’s second was unreal!

    I got beef w/ the Everton fans though. Watch the 30 seconds prior to the Gerrard goal. Suarez tosses something to the ref that is flat. My initial thought was someone threw a coin and Suarez was showing the ref. Then, as he is placing the ball another coin flashes across the screen. FA to charge Everton for sure.
