"The Liverpool Way" Liverpool 2-0 Sunderland

Kenny Dalglish and Andy Carroll

Liverpool 2-0 Sunderland

Dirk Kuyt's penalty set the Merseysiders on their way to victory yesterday as they cemented their sixth place in the Premier League table under temporary boss Kenny Dalglish.

Liverpool owner John Henry declined to comment about the future of Scottish manager Dalglish but said he was doing "very well" after watching the Reds win 2-0 against Sunderland yesterday.

When asked about a new permanent contract between Liverpool and Dalglish, Henry said, "What is going on in that regard is private. It is something called 'the Liverpool way' and you do these things behind closed doors.

"I am not going to talk about these things. He has done very well."

Liverpool’s Dirk Kuyt scored a controversial penalty in the 34th minute.

Video replays later showed Jay Spearing was fouled outside the box by John Mensah but the assistant referee awarded a penalty.

“There was a bit of dispute over whether the foul occurred inside or outside the box,” Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish said.

“From where we are, I couldn’t honestly tell you but if we have got a fortuitous one, then we have got a fortuitous decision in that instance.

“Overall, it was a great effort from our players.”

A stunning solo effort from Uruguay striker Luis Suarez in the 77th minute clinched the three points for Liverpool,

Mensah was given a straight red card for hauling down Suarez.

The Reds are four points behind Tottenham but have played a game more.
