The LFC fansite that...thinks there should be a blairt-alert on LFC TV phone-in



Liverpool 3 Wigan Athletic 0


This was a win that emphasised Luis Suárez's enduring indispensability and marked José Enrique's reincarnation as an attacking midfielder. While Suárez (twice) and José Enrique finished on the scoresheet.

"José's a terrific talent. I think he can really play that role," Rodgers said. "Luis took his goals very well, he's a master marksman and his movement was outstanding, but today was about the team. The pressure we built up was very strong and we were much more educated on the ball. I'm delighted and thrilled for the players, they give me so much every day."

Watson nearly turned a Suárez shot into his own net and Al-Habsi performed wonders to save Suso's ferocious shot. Wigan enjoyed plenty of midfield possession which resulted in Suso being replaced with the more combative Jordan Henderson. Steven Gerrard remained in a holding role alongside Joe Allen, which allowed Gerrard to interchange positions with Henderson, which increased our attacking options.

A clever Gerrard pass and a cross from José Enrique wrong-footed the Wigan defense, freeing Suárez who's shot was superbly saved by the Wigan keeper. Raheem Sterling intercepted a weak Beausejour's pass and surged forward, rounding Figueroa, before picking out Suárez who lashed the ball high into the net. José Enrique played Suárez in and the Uruguayan slid the ball low past Al-Habsi.

The match was wrapped up when Habsi could only parry Sterling's cross-shot, José Enrique tapped home his first goal for the club. Enrique was irrepressible and he should have nicked another goal had a sitter not fallen to Henderson's weaker left foot.
