Liverpool striker Luis Suarez dedicated a goal to his new-born son after scoring at Sunderland on his return to Premier League action on Sunday.

Back in the team after serving a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic last season, the Uruguayan tapped home a low cross from Daniel Sturridge in the 36th minute to put Liverpool 2-0 up.

He then lifted his jersey to reveal a T-shirt bearing a picture of his wife and daughter with his new son Benjamin, who was born on Thursday.

The T-shirt bore the words "Welcome Benja!" and "Los Amo!", meaning "I love you!"
