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 by curling a perfect free kick into the top left corner. Daniel Agger had headed in Philippe Coutinho's corner to put the home side 1-0 up in the 36th.

Liverpool rose to fourth in the standings after consecutive losses against Manchester City and Chelsea.

"It was arguably our best win of the season, on the back of what was a tough schedule for us with a light squad," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "The energy, as you'd expect, was not what it has been but we showed great resilience today."

Rodgers, who is without injured striker Daniel Sturridge, welcomed the return of captain Steven Gerrard. The England midfielder came off the bench midway through the second half to feature in his first game since picking up a hamstring injury in early December.
