Who needs Torres? Luis Suarez scores on debut as Liverpool beat Stoke 2-0

Liverpool 2 – Stoke 0 (Premier League, February 2, 2011) (MOTD highlights) After a goalless first half, Liverpool struck two minutes after the break in front of the Kop. A deflected Gerrard free-kick was knocked back by Kyrgiakos and Raul Meireles scored his third goal since Kenny Dalglish took over. The win was secured and will be remembered for the second goal, scored by debutant substitute Luis Suarez who rounded Begovic and despite the best efforts of Wilkinson claimed his first Liverpool goal.

Before the game Andy Carroll was paraded to the Anfield faithful.
