Lazar Markovic was the scorer of the only goal and the Serbia international had an early shout for a penalty denied when he was brought down in the box by Wes Brown.
Shortly afterwards referee Craig Pawson made up for what looked to be an incorrect decision by allowing some brilliant advantage when Jordan Henderson was fouled to allow Markovic to continue play and score.
In a Man of the Match display from the 20-year-old he then rattled the woodwork before the first half was out with this fantastic strike that had Costel Pantilimon beaten.
Then Henderson himself went close, this time with the post being hit, although Pawson ruled that the England international had handled the ball in the buildup – which on reflection appeared to be another wrong decision.
As the Reds continued to dominate it was Fabio Borini’s turn to go close, but after rounding Pantilimon the Italian could only manage to find the side netting when he probably should have scored.
After the break things went from bad to worse for the Black Cats as midfielder Liam Bridcutt was shown a second yellow card for bringing down Emre Can, although the decision looked a little harsh.
The hosts continued to press, but Brendan Rodgers’ side held out to earn a vital three points.
