Liverpool have already surprised many this EPL season with a run of good results that has Brendan Rodgers' side challenging for a top four spot. Now they're starting to add stupendous goals to that equation.

Of course, the return of Luis Suarez from suspension has much to do with that. The Uruguayan had an impressive hat trick in Liverpool's 4-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. And though all three goals were terrific, I'm partial to his first, wherein Jonas Olsen gets mercilessly nutmegged before a clinical finish:


Not to be outdone, Suraez strike partner Daniel Sturridge served up this cheeky bit of finishing from outside the box, somehow managing to steal headlines away from the hat trick hero.


With the strikes, Suarez has six goals in four Premier League appearances, while Daniel Sturridge has eight in nine. Best strike partnership in the league? Perhaps. Most exciting? There's a strong case. With the win over West Brom, Liverpool moves to second in the EPL, two points behind leaders Arsenal. West Brom, meanwhile, drop to 13th.
