Liverpool fire 3 second half goals, starting with an Andy Carroll header to take all three points and cap a fine 6 days for the club.
Jay Spearing came in to the side for Steven Gerrard and the reds put behind them the misery of their previous Premier League outing to go straight on the offensive in a game filled with opportunities for the reds.
Their third game in 6 days, including titanic cup semi-finals and a FA Cup clash against old foes Man United may have had many fans thinking Liverpool would look lethargic, but they looked surprisingly bright and adventurous, against one of the league’s relegation candidates.
Whereas the week before the reds had set out of the blocks slowly against Bolton this was a performance more expected by Liverpool’s supporters.
It was Bellamy who was the pick of the players in the first half – having a shot go narrowly wide before a free kick was well saved. Glen Johnson had adequate shouts for a penalty after being barged off the ball.
At half time and 0-0 there were worries it would be one of those games – but the reds found the net in the second half. Bellamy found Adam who fired in a cross which Carroll put in the net just 6 minutes in to the second half.
Bellamy was involved again – his shot from the edge of the box doubling Liverpool’s lead.
The reds sealed the game when Kuyt scored from a tight angle – marking his 50th Premier League goal for the club.
Dalglish was clearly pleased with the players after the game:
“We had a very thoroughly professional, high-quality performance, and the players deserve great credit after the two victories we’ve had.
“We thoroughly deserved the victory and the boys were a credit to the club. We’re pleased with everybody.
The reds move ahead of Arsenal and are 4 points behind 4th placed Chelsea.
