Liverpool 2-1 Crewe – Carling Cup Highlights
Lucas Leiva grabbed Liverpool’s winner as the Anfield side saw off the challenge of League One side Crewe.
Daniel Agger put the Reds ahead when he drove in a free-kick awarded for Michael O’Connor’s foul on David Ngog.
O’Connor atoned for his foul as he shot home from close range after keeper Diego Cavalieri parried Calvin Zola’s header from a Billy Jones corner.
But Leiva timed a run to perfection to meet a Jermaine Pennant cross and headed in to wrap up a Reds win.
