Liverpool 3-1 Blackburn Highlights
Fernando Torres scored his 30th goal of the season as Liverpool outfought Blackburn to strengthen their grip on fourth place in the Premier League.
Steven Gerrard, who had a penalty appeal turned down after he was clipped by Brad Friedel, broke the deadlock with a cool finish in the second half. Torres met Gerrard’s deep cross with a precise header to make it 2-0 before Andrei Voronin slid home a third. Roque Santa Cruz hooked in a late reply for Blackburn, who were well beaten. Rafa Benitez’s side are now five points clear of fifth-placed Everton with four league games to go.
