Liverpool hits five at Stoke

STOKE, England - Luis Suarez grabbed a brace and Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to score as Liverpool overcame defensive inadequacies to beat Stoke 5-3 in the Premier League.

Liverpool, which claimed its first league win at the Britannia Stadium yesterday, first squandered a 2-0 lead when former Reds Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam cancelled out Ryan Shawcross' own goal and Suarez's first strike.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard put his team back in front from the penalty spot after the interval before Suarez gave the visitors breathing space from Sturridge's assist.

Jonathan Walters pulled one back to ensure a nervous finish for the visitors before Sturridge, back from injury after nearly seven weeks out, rifled the ball into the back of the net.
