Blackburn 1-3 Liverpool Highlights
Goals from Xabi Alonso, Yossi Benayoun and Steven Gerrard were enough to keep Liverpool top of the league and condemn Blackburn to a 10th successive defeat.
Stephen Warnock stopped Benayoun giving Liverpool the lead before Morten Gamst Pedersen fired against the cross-bar.
After half-time Alonso sidefooted past Paul Robinson to open the scoring and Benayoun shot low to double the lead.
Roque Santa Cruz’s header gave Blackburn hope but Gerrard found an empty net after a late Robinson error.
The goalkeeper rushed out of his area but conceded possession with his dreadful clearance and Gerrard was able to compound Blackburn’s woe.
