Liverpool 3-1 PSV Eindhoven Highlights

Robbie Keane’s first goal since his £20.3m move from Tottenham helped Liverpool ease to victory over PSV Eindhoven in Champions League Group D.

1-0 D.Kuyt 4′

2-0 R.Keane 34′

3-0 S.Gerrard 76′

3-1 D.Koevermans 78′

Dirk Kuyt put the Reds ahead after four minutes, following up after Andreas Isaksson saved Fernando Torres’ volley.

Keane made it 2-0 before half-time when he hooked home Torres’ bouncing cross.

Steven Gerrard wrapped up the win with a ferocious free-kick – his 100th goal for Liverpool – before Danny Koevermans bundled home a consolation for PSV.

There are sure to be sterner tests ahead for Liverpool in Europe this season than the visit of the Dutch champions but Reds boss Rafa Benitez has plenty of reasons to be satisfied after his side’s convincing display.

PSV clearly came to Anfield with the intention of frustrating their hosts but they managed to do so for only four minutes before Kuyt broke the deadlock.
