Liverpool and Steaua Bucharest both met at The Red’s fortress Anfield tonight where both sides intended of salvaging some points for there Europa League campaign. Liverpool were without big guns Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard and were looking upon Joe Cole to provide some inspiration for the team, who is currently banned from the Premier League.
Within the first minute, Joe Cole provided that inspiration. A silly slip up from the Bucharest defender Abrudan led Joe Cole straight into the box to make a classy finish in off the post to put Liverpool ahead early on. Although they were up, they were certainly not comfortable.

Liverpool were struggling to put passes together and Steaua looked to get back into the game. They then got the equaliser with Cristian Tanase as he skipped the ball past an out coming Pepe Reina. The rest of the half was then mostly dominated by Steaua as they created a few chances which would have had Liverpool fans worried.
The second half began and a different Liverpool side came out. The team looked more energetic and played some finer football, keep the ball well. They needed to peg themselves in front and found the opening when Kyrgiakos was brought down in the box from a corner. This gave Liverpool a penalty which David N’Gog confidently slotted away to put the home team in front again.
After that, Liverpool were in comfortable possession and created another two goals. The next was scored by the Brazilian Lucas who came off the bench for Ryan Babel who did not have a particularly amazing performance he would have liked to. Lucas scored the goal from long rang, sizzling the ball towards the corner and past the Bucharest goalkeeper. Late on Daniel Pacheco had a chance to shine as he came on for Maxi Rodriguez, although with only 6 minutes remaining, he played barely any part at all.
The last goal came from David N’Gog once again would has scored 5 in the competition already, and looks like he is fulfilling his potential at Liverpool. He found the ball in the area and made a neat finish into the left of the corner.
What was first a worrying time for Liverpool, turned out to be a great result for them – and they will be very happy to walk away with 3 points!
