Luis Suarez in spotlight as Mersey derby ends 2-2
(REUTERS) - Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez courted more controversy as he inspired Liverpool into a two-goal lead against Everton in a thrilling Merseyside derby that ended 2-2 at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Suarez's low cross was turned into his own net by Leighton Baines after 14 minutes and he then doubled his side's lead five minutes later with a glancing header.
Everton battled back to earn a draw with goals from Leon Osman and Steven Naismith before halftime but it was Suarez who guaranteed he would be making the headlines.
Heavily criticised before the match by Everton manager David Moyes for his perceived habit of diving, he celebrated Liverpool's first goal by racing over to the Everton dugout and throwing himself theatrically to the ground.
