  • Philippe Coutinho has been awarded the Man of the Match accolade for his influential display throughout. Excellent performance, playing a role in all of Liverpool's forward play.

  • Sunderland look to send the ball long but there is no time for them to equalise as Kevin Friend brings proceedings to a close.

  • Liverpool regain possession and Johnson and Sterling look to hold onto it in the bottom right corner. Less about artistry and more about holding on for Liverpool here.

    90+2
  • We will have three added minutes and it looks like Liverpool will spend them holding on.

    90+1
  • Palpable sense of nervousness around Anfield as Sunderland charge forward once more, but the Liverpool defence remains solid.

    90
  • Ki challenges Skrtel on the right flank but the Liverpool defender is able to clear his lines as the hosts do their best to hold out.

    89
  • Johnson places a teasing ball across the Liverpool box from a free kick and O'Shea gets a head to the ball but cannot make enough contact to steer it home.

    88
  • Ki picks out Altidore on the edge of the box as Sunderland look to break into the Liverpool box once more.

    87
  • Sunderland continue to threaten the Liverpool defence but it is the hosts who get the free kick in the left corner.

    86
  • Cattermole looks to pick out Johnson on the right wing, but his ball is cut out by Flanagan and Sunderland must rebuild.

    85
  • Bardsley tacks the right wing once more but his final ball is cut off by the Liverpool defence. Sunderland are not ready to surrender!

    84
  • Final change for Sunderland sees Jack Colback replace Andrea Dossena.

  • Bridcutt is penalised for a push on Suarez and Liverpool are awarded another free kick in an opportune position. Suarez lines it from 30 yards but his effort curls just to the left of Mannone.

    81
  • Suarez showing his skills in the right corner as his jinks his way past three defenders before the Liverpool attack is forced back.

    80
  • Bardsley and Altidore exchange passes down the right before Liverpool regain possession and race down the other end.

    79
  • Coutinho and Suarez link once more as Liverpool break into Sunderland territory but the latter's cheeky chip caused little trouble for Mannone.

    78
  • Liverpool goalscorer Daniel Sturridge is replaced by Raheem Sterling.

  • GOAL! Sung-yueng Ki! Johnson's corner is not cleared at the near post and Ki stoops low to head home after the bounce. It was coming and you cannot say that Sunderland did not deserve that. Game on!

    76
  • Bardsley fires a 30-yard shot into the back of Agger, before Ki forces a corner from the Liverpool defenders.

    76
  • Patient build-up from Sunderland this time as Ki, who had made a real impact since coming on, picks out Altidore on the edge of the box, only for the American to run into traffic.
