Luis Suarez scored either side of half-time as Liverpool ran out comfortable 4-0 winners against Fulham at Anfield.

The Uruguayan scored his eighth and ninth goals of the season after Fernando Amorebieta had broken the deadlock with an own goal and Martin Skrtel netted a header.

Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order as Liverpool move into second place.

Former Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia ‏(@LuchoGarcia14) is happy to see Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson back in the starting line-up: “The Reds are on, Liverpool vs Fulham. Looking good with Agger and Johnson.”

One of the club’s all-time great goal-scorers Michael Owen ‏(@themichaelowen) loves watching his close friend Steven Gerrard dominate: “Liverpool in top gear. Fulham hardly had a kick so far. Gerrard pulling the strings.”

Andros Townsend’s father Troy Townsend ‏(@Towno10) reckons the game could be up for Fulham’s manager after a nightmare start at Anfield: “This could be it for Mr Jol.”

John W Henry’s partner Linda Pizzuti (‏@Linda_Pizzuti) is enjoying the soccer as the Reds thrill in the opening period: “Excellent first half!”

Liverpool legend John Aldridge (‏@Realaldo474) is showing off his striker colours: “Hope Suarez gets the goal given to him looks doubtful though… The third is defo his. Is he on a hat-trick??”

Reds youngster Suso (‏@suso30fernandez), who is on loan at Almeria, is delighted to see his compatriot make a return from injury: “Well done Liverpool. I watched the game another win. Happy to see Suárez scoring and my friend Jose Enrique back to the field.”

Brazilian Lucas Leiva ‏(@LucasLeiva87) is more happy about a clean sheet than their four goals: “Good to win again and keep the clean sheet!!! Now international break.”

His compatriot and Liverpool team-mate Philipe Coutinho (‏@Phil_Coutinho) is thrilled to make his Anfield return after a spell sidelined: “Good victory today, happy to be back playing at Anfield.”
