  • What a second half. Udinese came out the traps firing from the break with Di Natale the mastermind as the Italian side stunned Liverpool with a 25-minute onslaught. The arrival of Suarez and Gerrard improved Liverpool greatly but the Reds suffer their third home defeat in a row as their season continues to stutter. Thanks for your company at Anfield and I'll see you all soon.

  • FULL TIME. Liverpool 2 Udinese 3.

  • Badu whips a hopeful ball across goal which is eventually picked up by Pereyra. He loses out to Suarez poorly though as Sterling comes in from the left before Downing's shot is hit straight at Brkic. A big chance wasted.

  • Four minutes of extra time is added on.

  • Faraoni picks up a booking for a tackle made in the build-up to Sterling's shot.

  • Sterling tries a curler from the edge of the area which is narrowly over to the angst of the Anfield faithful.

  • Allen takes the momentum away from Gerrard's pass, and in the end the Liverpool captain has to fight to win his own pass.

  • Suarez wins a free-kick off Willians, with Robinson played in on the left, crossing in after a promising run but it's straight to Brkic at the near post.

  • Great chance for the Reds. Johnson finds Sterling from the corner, his shot finding the back of the unknowing Danilo who takes the flight of the ball away from goal.

  • Liverpool's chief tormenter, Di Natale is taken off and Ranegie takes his place.

  • Suarez's contribution to this team really can't be overstated. He collects the ball on the right and fires a wicked shot at the near post which is parried well by Brkic.

  • Suarez wins back the ball in midfield, finding Gerrard who dinks a teasing ball at the far post which Danilo ends up dealing with exceptionally.

  • Johnson looks to tuck the ball in for Shelvey but Danilo comes across to cover. Moments later, Gerrard lets rip, with an arm seemingly block the shot courtesy of Danilo.

  • The visitors clear their lines but Di Natale's attempted break is cut off by strong marking from Carragher.

  • Gerrard and Sterling combine for the former to fire at Domizzi, with Downing then doing well to earn a corner.

  • Sterling joins the fray as he replaces Borini.

  • A potentially love move ends up with Suarez looking for Borini, but slipping at the vital last minute and playing a poor ball away from goal.

  • Di Natale finds Badu on the right, but a nudge from Carragher sends him into the crowd, where he looks to have picked up an injury.

  • It's turning into quite an exciting game at Anfield here, as Liverpool attack, with Suarez meeting Downing's ball to draw a brilliant save from Brkic! Eventually, Udinese clear to safety through Danilo.

  • Coates looks for Downing but plays his ball with a bit too much pace and in the end it's gathered by the welcome arms of Brkic.
