Liverpool continued their fine run of form with a comfortable win at the Stadium of Light. The away side were fortunate to win a penalty when John Mensah clearly fouled Jay Spearing outside the box and Dirk Kuyt put the spot kick away with ease.
Luis Suarez caused the Black Cats all sorts of problems and the Uruguayan put away a fine goal with 15 minutes to go to kill the game off and secure all three points.
