Liverpool 2-1 Sunderland: Brendan Rodgers 'enjoying' title fight
Rodgers also praises "top-class talents" Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. Sturridge's second-half goal means two Liverpool strikers have scored 20 league goals in a season for the first time for 50 years.
Captain Steven Gerrard curled home the opening goal from a 23-yard free-kick and Sturridge made it 2-0 just after half-time. Ki Sung-Yueng pulled one back for Sunderland with 14 minutes remaining.
