Breakdown
17:17 GMT : Match Starts
1 min : Sunderland kick off the match attacking the Kop end.
2 mins : Carra has started the match at right back with Lucas taking up a position on the left of midfield.
3 mins : The first sight of goal sees Nosworthy produce a fine block to deny Crouchie on the edge of the box.
4 mins : The away fans are in good voice. It would be nice to silence them with an early goal! It's not likely at the moment though as Kieran Richardson is down injured.
6 mins : Nosworthy is having a strange opening by mixing some poor play in control of the ball with some fine last-ditch tackling.
7 mins : Looks like Richardson's afternoon could be over prematurely.
7 mins : Substitution: Rade Prica for Kieran Richardson:
9 mins : It's not been the brightest of starts from either side. Sunderland look eager to play a containing game while the Reds have yet to have any sustained period of possession.
14 mins : A brilliant move that must have involved 15-20 passes ends with Sunderland keeper Gordon having to cut out Pennant's low ball in from the right hand touchline. Good play from the Reds.
14 mins : But there's danger now as a foul by Hyypia has given the away side a free-kick on the right edge of the area.
15 mins : The Reds have cleared and they now have their own free-kick just outside the area after Torres' break ends in a foul.
16 mins : Gerrard's shot is well blocked and Sunderland survive after one or two nervy clearances.
19 mins : We are coming up to the 20 minute mark and Roy Keane will be delighted with what he's seen so far. Liverpool need to inject some more pace into their build-up play.
22 mins : First Booking: Liam Miller:
22 mins : Mascherano hammers a 30 yard effort over the bar after the Black Cats fail to close him down from a short free-kick in the centre circle.
24 mins : Dean Whitehead lines up a shot from just outside the box but it is a tame effort and Reina gathers easily.
26 mins : Rob Styles has given the Reds a free-kick 30 yards from goal...
27 mins : Aurelio's low effort hits the wall. No Brazilian magic on that occasion!
30 mins : Martin Skrtel has made some impressive challenges so far today. It will no doubt do wonders for his confidence.
31 mins : Kenwyne Jones powered his way into the box but Mascherano was having none of it and pulled off a fantastic recovery tackle to deny him.
32 mins : Another delay as Jones receives some treatment in front of an unimpressed Kop.
36 mins : The visitors are beginning to grow in confidence.
37 mins : We've huffed and puffed but Gordon has so far been untroubled.
38 mins : Reina tries to release Torres with a quick thinking long kick but it is overhit and goes out of play. The moment sums up Liverpool's first-half.
39 mins : Finally a chance to write home about as Pennant skins two defenders before clipping the ball into the box for Torres to head at goal. Unfortunately for the Spaniard he directs it straight at Gordon.
43 mins : The Pennant run and cross moments earlier has been the highlight of the first-half!
45 mins : There will be a minimum of three minutes added time.
18:05 GMT : Half Time Reached
18:22 GMT : Second Half Begins
46 mins : Substitution: Steve Finnan for Fabio Aurelio:
46 mins : Liverpool restart the second period attacking the Kop end.
47 mins : Finnan is on for Aurelio and has slotted in at left-back. Carra remains at right-back.
48 mins : Sammy Lee is among the crowd watching today's game.
49 mins : Like the rest of us he's not had much to get excited about yet.
51 mins : The crowd are beginning to show their frustration as the Reds are still struggling to create any openings.
55 mins : The hosts are camped in the Sunderland half at present but we are still finding it difficult to manufacture any chances. Jermaine Pennant has looked lively down the right but despite the occasional piece of magic it's just not happening up top.
56 mins : Substitution: Roy O'Donovan for Rade Prica:
57 mins : GOAL! Peter Crouch:
59 mins : That's warmed the crowd up! Torres nearly makes it two with a ferocious volley from the right hand side of the area but Gordon makes a fine save to deny him.
61 mins : Substitution: Yossi Benayoun for Lucas Leiva:
63 mins : Brilliant build up play ends with a trademark Crouch scissor kick but Gordon denies him with a top save. Gerrard then saw his follow up deflected for a corner and from that the away side had to head off the line.
66 mins : We just had more chances in two minutes than we had in the first hour of this clash! What a difference a goal makes.
69 mins : GOAL! Fernando Torres:
72 mins : The visitors look deflated. Great combination between Torres and Crouch for the second goal with the Spaniard racing on to the big man's flick.
73 mins : Stevie G's just been down with a bit of cramp. Finnan and Reina were on hand to give him some help and his back up and in the thick of it again.
74 mins : Sunderland just had a huge penalty appeal turned down as Murphy's shot clearly hit Carra on the arm. A lucky escape for Liverpool.
79 mins : Roy Keane's men have responded well to going 2-0 down but have not really troubled Reina with any strikes on goal.
81 mins : If we can maintain this lead it will put us one point behind Everton with a game in hand.
83 mins : It was nearly cut there though as Reina could only push a header out into the danger area. Luckily for us Crouchie was there to hack it away.
83 mins : Substitution: Martin Waghorn for Michael Chopra:
83 mins : Substitution: Dirk Kuyt for Peter Crouch:
84 mins : And so Dirk is on for Crouchie. Can he get that goal he so desperately needs to boost his confidence?
87 mins : The attendance tonight is 43,244.
88 mins : The monkey is nearly off our back. A first league win in 2008 is minutes away. Here's to many, many more.
89 mins : Penalty to Liverpool. Pennant brought down.
89 mins : GOAL! Steven Gerrard: Penalty
89 mins : First Booking: Craig Gordon:
90 mins : There will be a minimum of two minutes added time.
19:09 GMT : Match Over
