Still in title contention

LIVERPOOL, England, March 26 AP - Liverpool moved to within a point of Premier League leaders Chelsea with a nervy 2-1 win over Sunderland sealed by goals from Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge yesterday.

Ki Sung-yeung's 76th-minute header for relegation-threatened Sunderland ensured a tense finish at Anfield, with Liverpool forced to hang on to stay in strong contention for a first league title since 1990.

Gerrard's 25-metre free kick in the 39th minute gave the hosts a 1-0 lead at the break and it looked like they would saunter to victory after Sturridge's deflected goal in the 48th.

It did not turn out that way.

Liverpool's seventh straight league win lifted the team two points above Manchester City, which has two games in hand over the sides above them, but this was not as convincing as its previous six victories — when the Reds had scored at least three goals each game.

As halftime approached, the home fans were gripped with nerves that their team was going to waste a great chance to close on Chelsea but Gerrard stepped up.
