Liverpool are up to fifth after goals from Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt and Luis Suarez completed a 3-0 victory over Newcastle. Kenny Dalglish's side have now scored 11 and conceded none in their last three home games - and the momentum is theirs as the race for Europe draws to a conclusion.
There were just 10 minutes on the clock when a lovely sequence of Liverpool passing ended with Maxi half-volleying past Tim Krul via the leg of Danny Simpson.
Luis Suarez made a nuisance of himself again on 58 minutes to earn Liverpool a penalty, hassling Williamson when most others would have let it be. Possession was gained and in a bid to recover the Newcastle defender grabbed hold of Suarez's shirt. Referee Peter Walton showed no hesitation and neither did Kuyt, sending Krul the wrong way to make it 2-0. It was Kuyt's 14th goal of the season in all competitions - and his eighth in his last seven league outings.
Suarez scores his second goal at Anfield this season and Kuyt turned provider, diverting the ball into the path of Suarez on 65 minutes with a sweet flick of his right boot. The No.7 couldn't miss from six yards out.
With the points secure, Dalglish introduced Carroll to a standing ovation from the Kop. He replaces Maxi Rodriguez.
It was Meireles who was next to threaten, coming within inches of making it 4-0 with a diving header from Johnson's cross. But, it's okay for them...
Well Done Liverpool..!!! Well Done King Kenny...!!!
You'll Never Walk Alone....~~
