Tottenham ties 0-0 at Liverpool in Premier League


LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- Luis Suarez returned from an eight-game suspension given after he racially abused an opponent, and Liverpool was held to a 0-0 tie by Tottenham in the Premier League on Monday night.

Suarez entered in the 66th minute, his first appearance since Dec. 26. He was penalized after a Football Association panel found he racially insulted Manchester United's Patrice Evra during a league match at Anfield on Oct. 15.

Tottenham (15-4-5) has 50 points, seven behind first-place Manchester City (18-3-3) and five back of defending champion Manchester United (17-3-4).

Liverpool (10-5-9) is seventh with 39 points, four behind fourth-place Chelsea for the final Champions League berth.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp missed the match because he was stranded in London due to aircraft difficulties after leaving his tax trial.
