Skipper Suarez scores twice in rout as Spurs fume after Paulinho sees red with studs up challenge

Luis Suarez’s prolific season gathered even more momentum after scoring two and setting up two as Liverpool dismantled a feeble Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Brendan Rodgers gave him the responsibility of captaining the side and within the first 20 minutes it had paid dividends; the striker netting after a Michael Dawson was caught napping on the ball.

Jordan Henderson made it two just before half-time and the day got worse for the hosts as Paulinho was sent off for a late studs up challenge that left the Uruguayan writhing on the ground.

It was the unlikely figure of Jon Flanagan, Liverpool’s young full back, who scored the third after a well taken finish at the back post.

Suarez hit the fourth as he lobbed Hugo Lloris in the last ten minutes before setting up Raheem Sterling who beat the offside trap and slotted the ball past the Spurs keeper.
