Luis Suarez rescued a point for Liverpool with a sublime goal that owed nothing to his alleged penchant for diving in a 1-1 draw at home to 10-man Newcastle at Anfield on Sunday.

This season the Uruguay striker has been on the receiving end of repeated charges from rival managers that he goes to ground all too easily.

However, Suarez delivered a timely reminder of his skill in the 67th minute at Anfield when he drew Liverpool level after Yohan Cabaye had given Newcastle the lead.

Jonas Gutierrez gave possession away to Jose Enrique, who punted a ball into the Newcastle box.

Suarez brought the ball under control, skipped past Fabricio Coloccini and coolly rounded Magpies goalkeeper Tim Krul in a sweeping solo move. 

Coloccini's day got worse when he received a straight red card six minutes from time for a wild challenge on Suarez.

Cabaye put Newcastle in front two minutes before half-time with a superb strike across the face of goal and into the far corner of Brad Jones's net following a cross from Hatem Ben Arfa.

The draw left Newcastle in 10th place while Liverpool climbed into 12th spot, three points behind the Magpies.

Earlier on Sunday, Queens Park Rangers and Reading were still both left searching for their first Premier League win of the season after sharing the points in a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.

However, the result did see QPR at least climb off the bottom of the table, leapfrogging Southampton on goal difference ahead of the Saints' match against West Brom on Monday.

Former QPR defender Kaspars Gorkss opened the scoring for visitors Reading in the 16th minute. But Djibril Cisse earned QPR a draw with a 66th minute equaliser.
