A LUIS CANNON; PREMIER LEAGUE: WIGAN 0 LIVERPOOL 4 Player of the Year? This Should Do the 'Trick for Suarez


Byline: DAVID ANDERSON

HIS hat-trick makes him the Premier League's top scorer with 21 goals in 27 games.

Liverpool fans held a pre-match protest about the cost of tickets (below) but few Reds supporters are likely to have begrudged the price of entry here after seeing their team in such sublime form.

Suarez was his lethal best against Wigan, latching on to Philippe Coutinho's through-ball for his first on 18 minutes before netting his third free-kick in two games on 34 minutes via a deflection off Shaun Maloney and the post.

His movement was superb and he completed his hat-trick four minutes after the interval when Glen Johnson's bustling run put him through in the right channel, and he slotted home through keeper Ali Al Habsi's legs. …
