Steven Gerrard converted two penalty kicks for Liverpool
Manchester, England (SportsNetwork.com) -
Steven Gerrard converted a pair of penalty kicks on Sunday to lift Liverpool to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The Merseyside club entered Sunday's clash well rested and in fine form, having not played since a March 1 3-0 result over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium.
The Reds had the better of the play early on and snagged the lead in the 34th minute after Luis Suarez beat United defender Rafael in the penalty area with a deft touch and the ball popped up to strike Rafael's hand, resulting in a penalty kick.
