LONDON -- Liverpool delivered a potent attacking master class on Sunday, with Luis Suarez at his devastating best in a 5-0 rout of Tottenham that signals the team can sustain a Premier League title challenge.
The 18-time champions, who haven't won the title since 1990, moved two points behind Arsenal after the leaders were stunned 6-3 at Manchester City on Saturday.
Defending champion Manchester United trails Arsenal by 10 points after winning 3-0 at Aston Villa to avoid a third successive league loss.
After Danny Welbeck's double for United, Suarez netted twice for Liverpool and played a part in the other three goals at White Hart Lane.
After another demoralizing collapse, Tottenham, which see itself as a Champions League team, is five points from fourth place but above United.
