    • 2011 October 1, Phil McNulty, “Everton 0 - 2 Liverpool”, BBC Sport:
      Everton were, perhaps understandably, deflated at the setback and it was no surprise when Suarez added Liverpool's second after 82 minutes. Distin and Baines were involved in a mix-up as the Uruguayan advanced into the area, and he was not about to pass up the gift to shoot low past Howard.
