  1. Full Time. That's it! All over. Comfortable win for Liverpool as they beat Sunderland 3-0 at Anfield.

  2. 90+1

    Suso with the shot that's deflected for a corner.

  3. 90

    There will be two minutes of added time.

  4. 88

    Suarez getting increasingly frustrated by the offside flag and showing some petulance there. He was offside again so the official was right but Suarez is desperate for this hat-trick.

  5. 87

    Allen has the ball in the net this time but the flag was already up for offside.

  6. 85

    Chance! Allen hits the sidenetting from close range at the near post as he attempts to turn in Johnson's centre.

  7. 84

    Suarez is still looking for that hat-trick. Here he has a shot blocked before Gerrard hits a spectacular volley over the bar.

  8. 83

    McFadden almost threads a pass through to Fletcher but has to make do with a corner that Liverpool clear.

  9. 81

    Johnson with a powerful right-footed effort from distance that flies just wide of the post.

  10. 79

    Johnson with the cross but with Fletcher the only target that runs harmlessly out of play for a goal-kick.

  11. 76

    Liverpool have the ball in the net for the fourth but Johnson is ruled to have been offside in the build-up. He was, just.

  12. 75

    Carragher on for Skrtel.

  13. 74

    Vaughan on for Rose.

  14. 73

    Downing gets away down the left and the cut-back finds Allen but his shot is deflected over the bar.

  15. 70

    Suarez with a delightful first touch to get away from his marker Kilgallon and it is only the quick thinking of Mignolet that saves at the forward's feet to deny the hat-trick.

  16. 68

    Downing feeds Suarez and the striker's curled effort is too close to Mignolet.

  17. 68

    Suso on for Henderson.

  18. 66

    Downing with the lofted cross that Gerrard volleys crisply from the edge of the area. His sweet connection finds the head of Johnson and Mignolet reacts quickly to tip over.

  19. 65

    The game still being played at a high tempo with Liverpool seemingly keen to push for more goals.

  20. 62

    McFadden on for Larsson.
