Liverpool (1) - (0) Portsmouth

Liverpool have extended their unbeaten run to 17 games after Steven Gerrard's 75th-minute penalty helped overcome Portsmouth 1-0 at Anfield.

The result keeps Rafa Benitez's men three points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League with 26 points from a possible 30.

The Reds dominated the play for much of the match, but failed to put that killer touch on to a series of well-worked moves.

Dirk Kuyt was a threat throughout and Steven Gerrard always looked liable to unlock the Pompey rearguard, and it might have been a much more flattering scoreline had one of their earlier efforts gone in during the first half.

Steven Gerrard made no mistake from the resulting penalty kick to ensure Liverpool stayed at the top of the table.
