    Henderson with a Gerrard-esque run through the middle

    We look so much better without Gerrard in the midfield.

    please get a second goal guys.

    would be typical liverpool to outclass a team so much and then draw 1-1 after a defensive nightmare.

    Yeah terrible finishing by Borini.

    Better finish your chances but Sunderland are opening up and the tempo that your midfield is playing at is suffocating them. If you can keep this intensity early on in the second half no doubt you'll kill them. But I have the feeling Sunderland will try and park the bus until the end of the game.

    The team is definitely playing with confidence and I'd be inclined to put on Sterling. Maybe for Gerrard and if the game has been done put on Balotelli.

    i just keep seeing us fail to score.
    it's gonna happen, this is our problem.

    poyet rallies his lads at half time and tells them 1 goal is nothing - push for corners and they'll get a goal.

    we've literally dominated them but it's all about how many you put in the back of the net; something we simply don't do well enough.

    Not surprising that we look better with Gerrard not in midfield, can't believd it took Rodgers this long to figure that out.

    Sterling's not even on the bench today.

    I'd be inclined to bring on Balotelli for Borini, I'd like to see Rossiter get some game time as well.

    how are we only 1-0 up?
    don't get me wrong, amazing display from the lads but it means nothing if we mess up defensively and don't get the points.

    as i said, borini simply isn't good enough - hard worker but doesn't have the quality.

    All the way from Jamaica?

    We could bring Manquillo on for Gerrard and move Markovic further up?

    He had a great last season at Sunderland so you can sort of understand him thinking he could prove himself at Liverpool with Suarez leaving? Think Rodgers has been a bit unfair on him considering how crap Balotelli has been.

    Lot of pressure on him to keep Gerrard happy in the past. Now he no longer has that problem since he's going to LA Galaxy in half a season.

    Manquillo isn't good attacking wise and Markovic's late runs into the box is what has been killing Sunderland. No need to change that structure until you're out of sight or if Sunderland have found a tactical solution to him being the defensive winger.

    Is there any decent attacking option on your bench? Balotelli is the only one I can think of and then you can change to a 3-4-1-2.
