LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Luis Suarez scored his 20th Premier League goal of the season as Liverpool got back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Hull on Wednesday.

Suarez, the league's top scorer despite having missed five games with a suspension, doubled the Reds' lead in the 50th minute with a perfect free kick curled into the top left corner after Daniel Agger had headed home Philippe Coutinho's corner to make it 1-0 in the 36th.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard made his return off the bench to play his first game since picking up a hamstring injury in early December.
