Breakdown
15:00 GMT : Match Starts
1 min : Portsmouth get the game underway attacking the Kop end.
2 mins : Arsenal's win over Spurs makes this a must-win match for the Reds.
3 mins : Pompey are enjoying early pressure
4 mins : Good play down the left involving Gerrard and Kuyt. This is more like it.
5 mins : Mascherano has our first real effort on goal but he is well off target from 25 yards
7 mins : Gerrard releases Torres down the left but Campbell is across to snuff out the danger. Corner to Liverpool.
7 mins : Unlucky Redmen. Kewell fires inches wide after some good play by Kuyt.
8 mins : Diop finds space for Pompey but fires straight at Reina from 20 yards. It's a bright opening
10 mins : Torres powers down cuts it back to Kuyt who somehow misses from six yards out
11 mins : Geln Johnson is down following that chance. The stretcher is on and it looks serious
12 mins : Lauren is ready to come on for Pompey
13 mins : He's sat back down now and Liverpool will take their corner which is well claimed by James
13 mins : GOAL! Yossi Benayoun:
15 mins : Well that's warmed me up! That's the way to spread some festive cheer.
16 mins : Own Goal! Sylvain Distin:
18 mins : What a bizarre goal. The perfect Xmas gift!
21 mins : First Booking: Papa Bouba Diop:
22 mins : It's all happening out there. Gerrard had a good effort fly just wide and Kewell nearly sent Torres clear but the linesman's flag intervened
24 mins : The Pompey fans are taunting the crowd for a lack of volume
25 mins : To be fair, their team hasn't given them much to shout about just yet
26 mins : The away side are enjoying their best spell of the half but Pepe Reina remains untested in the Liverpool goal
28 mins : Rafa's out the dugout closely followed by Joe Jordan for Pompey. He doesn't look happy!
29 mins : Kuyt plays a superb overhead pass to Stevie G but Sol Campbell recovers to stop the skipper just as he was about to shoot
31 mins : The confidence is back in the Liverpool team. Be sure to check out some of the flicks on show when you watch the re-run of the match on LFC TV
32 mins : Great challenge by Sami 30 yards from the away team's goal. What's he doing up there?
34 mins : First Booking: Hermann Hreidarsson:
35 mins : Fernando looks well up for this. He's frightening the life out of Campbell and co.
36 mins : Yossi cuts in from the right but fires his shot into the near post side netting
38 mins : Glen Johnson seems to have made a miraculous recovery. At one point he was on a stretcher about to be subbed but now he's tussling with Riise down the Liverpool left.
40 mins : Dirk Kuyt lashes an ambitious volley wide of James' goal after good link up play with Benayoun
42 mins : Pompey have a great away record but at the moment it's all Liverpool

48 mins : Yossi Benayoun jinks into the area but his shot is well blocked by Distin
50 mins : Portsmouth have already shown more intent in the opening five mins of the second period than they did in the entire first-half
51 mins : Sub Kanu turns brilliantly on the edge of the box but miscues his effort well wide of Reina's near post
52 mins : There are already warning signs for LFC. This isn't over yet
53 mins : Another Pompey player is down. This time it's Mendes and the stretcher is out once again!
54 mins : It's amazing what that stretcher can do. A player looks down and out, sees it coming and bounces straight up
55 mins : Mendes is fine now
57 mins : GOAL! Benjani Mwaruwari:
58 mins : Needless to say the away fans are in good voice all of a sudden

65 mins : Benjani outwits Riise down the Liverpool left but his low ball into the box is well cleared by Hyypia
66 mins : Kewell turns and unleashes a dipping 30 yard effort that flies inches over David James' goal
67 mins : GOAL! Fernando Torres:
69 mins : Rafa takes a seat in the dugout. His substitution has given him a reward within minutes
71 mins : Kuyt plays in Babel down the right but the Dutchman over-elaborates and in the end Mascherano's long range effort is easy for James
74 mins : Substitution: Matthew Taylor for Sulley Muntari:
75 mins : Pompey's best chance of getting something out of this is down our left flank. They've caused Riise and Kewell a number of problems this half
76 mins : Substitution: Fabio Aurelio for Harry Kewell:
77 mins : It would seem Rafa thinks so too!
77 mins : Aurelio has slotted in just in front of Riise
78 mins : Rafa is bemused by the referee's assistant's flag for what must have been an invisible foul!
81 mins : It's a strangely subdued atmosphere at Anfield today
82 mins : Maybe there were a lot of Xmas parties last night...
84 mins : Mascherano makes another great challenge. He must be up there for man of the match
85 mins : Torres shows a fresh pair of heels before winning a corner with an audacious flick
85 mins : GOAL! Fernando Torres:
86 mins : Substitution: Lucas Leiva for Fernando Torres:
88 mins : It's all over now. The Reds are back on track
89 mins : Matthew Taylor wins a free-kick for the visitors. Can they get another consolation?
