Liverpool striker Luis Suarez awarded second goal in match against West Ham by dubious goals panel
The Uruguay international awarded goal, despite original shot appearing to be off target
Luis Suarez extended his lead at the top of the Premier League goal scoring charts today after he was awarded a second goal in Liverpool's recent match against West Ham.
The strike was originally put down as an own goal after it struck Joey O'Brien.
However, the Premier League's dubious goals panel has decided that the goal should be credited to Suarez - adding to his other goal in the 4-1 win and taking his tally for the season to 15.
Replays of the strike appear to show the ball heading into the stands, however they were not conclusive.
Suarez now has three more goals than the player second in the goal scoring charts, Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.
The Premier League panel also confirmed Liverpool's second goal in the West Ham game will be Mamadou Sakho's first for the club despite Martin Skrtel insisting afterwards he had got the final touch.
