Liverpool Wins 1-0 vs Marseille Unconvincingly

Steven Gerrard's 23 minute goal sent Liverpool into the Champions League knockout stage with an unconvincing win against Marseille at Anfield. Gerrard headed in at the far post from a cross by Xabi Alonso during the first half. It was the highlight of a poor Liverpool display, with Marseille dominating possession for long periods.

Taye Taiwo had a long-range shot turned on to the post by keeper Pepe Reina before the break, and Liverpool's keeper also saved superbly from Hatem Ben Arfa. Liverpool now enter their final game of this section battling with Atletico Madrid to finish top of Group D.

The video of Gerrard's goal can be viewed below.
