Nigeria: EPL - Victor Moses Go Top With Liverpool

Nigeria's Victor Moses was handed a cameo appearance on Sunday evening at Anfield as Liverpool shot to the top of the English Premier League table after recording a massive 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspurs.

Sunday's win for Liverpool was their eight successive win and have thus opened a two-point lead at the top of the EPL table as they now have 71 points from 32 games.

Liverpool got the best of starts against Spurs as they were in the lead inside two minutes when Younes Kaboul turned a low Glen Johnson cross into his own net from close range.

Liverpool doubled their lead after 25 minutes when Suarez capitalised on a mistake from Kaboul and netted his 29th goal of the season.

Suarez had a golden opportunity to register his second two minutes later, but somehow Hugo Lloris kept the forward's header.

The visitors kept their cool and managed to keep the scores at 2-0 going for the break.

Virtually in total control in the home game, Coutinho in the 55th minute and Henderson 20 minutes later saw Liverpool racing to a 4-0 win.

The three points ensured that Liverpool returned to the summit of the EPL log where they were dislodged sometimes in December.

It is yet to be seen if Suarez and the gang can maintain the momentum and finally claim the EPL title they have for long bee coveting.
