Reds End Season On A High

Philippe Coutinho scored the winner as Liverpool ended their season with a 1-0 win over QPR at Anfield on Sunday.

It was a postive send off for the retiring stalward Jamie Carragher, but the win wasn’t enough to lift them above rivals Everton as the Reds ended the season in seventh place.

There were some early claims for a penalty for QPR when Loic Remy went down in the area after a challenge from Lucas, but the referee saw nothing in the tackle.

The match came to life on 23 minutes Coutinho then produced a brilliant low strike which snuck into the corner from 25 yards after some good play from Jordan Ibe.

The home side continued to look dangerous and it looked like they could go 2-0 up when Daniel Sturridge appeared clear on goal, bu the final block from Clint Hill saw the chance come to nothing.

Just before the break there was nearly a wonder strike from Jose Enrique who made a brilliant run up the left before dropping it onto his right foot, but the final shot had little to test the goalkeeper.

Five minutes into the second half, the Reds were again on the attack and this time it was Glen Johnson who forced the save out of Rob Green.

There was so nearly a classic ending to the career of veteran Jamie Carragher when he took a chance with an outlandish long-range effort, but while it had the beating of Green, it came crashing back off the bar.

With 20 minutes to play there were strong calls for a Reds penalty when Stewart Downing went tumbling down in the area, but again there was no interest from the referee.

The result saw Liverpool pick up their 16th victory of the season, while QPR will spend next season in the Championship.
