Reds Cruise Against Sunderland

Liverpool cantered to a comfortable 3-0 win against Sunderland with Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez in imperious form at Anfield.

Luis Suarez took his Premier League tally to 15 goals for the season as he scored a goal in each half following Raheem Sterling’s opener.

Sunderland started relatively strongly but it was not long before Liverpool began to dominate proceedings.

Stewart Downing curled a free kick towards the top corner that was kept out only by the sharp reflexes of Simon Mignolet.

The Reds opener came in the 19th minute as Suarez set Sterling on his way with a lofted ball over the defence and the youngster lifted it past the keeper.

The second came in the 26th minute when Gerrard knocked the ball forward for Suarez who stayed on his feet when fouled by Carlos Cuellar before firing in a neat finish.

Sunderland did get forward on occasion and were a threat when they did with Matthew Kilgallon’s volley drawing a sharp save from Pepe Reina.

Suarez and Sterling were a constant thorn in the side of the visitors but Sterling did not show as much composure after being sent through by Suarez a second time.

In the second period the Uruguayan had a second as Gerrard produced a dream pass from all the way across the field and Suarez collected and fired beyond the keeper.

Gerrard almost got the goal that his industrious play deserved as the game wore on but his deflected shot was tipped over by Mignolet as Liverpool saw out the same easily.
