A superb strike from Stewart Downing saw Liverpool claim a 1-0 victory over Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League clash at Anfield and move into top spot in Group A.

Downing cracked home an unstoppable effort from outside the box in the 53rd minute after coming in from the left flank.

The win was no less than the Reds deserved having been the better side for much of the contest, and they now lead the group with six points from three games.
