Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard sent his side into the knockout stage of the Champions League with the only goal against Marseille at Anfield.

The England midfielder, returning after a groin injury, ran in at the far post to powerfully head Xabi Alonso's 23rd-minute right-wing cross past goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.

But the home side made hard work of their penultimate Group D match and Marseille had several chances in the second half to snatch something from the game.
