In the end, it was easy, three-one away to Blackburn and still top of the table.
However, it was an uninspiring performance for much of the game. Liverpool were not at their best today so it was satisfying to see them take their chances when they came.
Alonso planted the ball home from a Gerrard cross, Benayoun scored a great individual goal from a sublime Dirk Kuyt pass.
Blackburn did get one back from Santa Cruz to cause a few nervous moments, but Steven Gerrard scored the third after good work by sub Albert Rieira.
Thankfully, Liverpool won and stay on top of the league!
