London: Liverpool proved they can win without striker Luis Suarez as the team fought from behind to win 3-2 at West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday. Suarez was serving a one-match ban but the Reds struck twice late in the game to seal a win that sees them go just four points behind the top four Champions League spots.

Former West Ham defender Glen Johnson put Liverpool ahead after 11 minutes before Mark Noble's penalty kick and Steven Gerrard's own goal turned the game in West Ham's favour before the break.

It was another West Ham academy graduate in substitute Joe Cole who pulled Liverpool level in the second half with James Collins' own goal completing the comeback for Liverpool.
