    BBC Radio 5 live

    "It was a subdued first half but Liverpool went in ahead at half-time and then they had the chance to put the game to bed but there were bad missed by Sterling and Lallana before Gerrard missed a penalty.

    "But he bounced back and won the game. It was a spirited performance by QPR they made Liverpool work hard but the circumstances were hard for them. They felt for their friend and colleague, it was a difficult day but they can be proud with the performance and they showed a lot of character."

    John Hartson at Anfield

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Only Steven Gerrard could do this, he misses a penalty at the Kop end and then five minutes later he does a brilliantly timed run, the ball is whipped in and he puts a bullet header to Rob Green's far post."

  6. LIVERPOOL SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-1 QPR

    Steven Gerrard comes off. One more home fixture to go for the Reds and the skipper - thank goodness he scored eh?

  11. RED CARD TO QPR

    John Hartson at Anfield

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "The corner comes in and Fer makes really good contact and it flies in past Mignolet. He was totally unmarked on the penalty spot. Liverpool will rue their missed chances in the second-half from Sterling and Lallana and QPR are back in it."

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Liverpool 1-1 QPR

    QPR's Richard Dunne is booked for a foul on Raheem Sterling.

    "Already in the first 10 minutes we have had Lallana and Sterling miss chance and as time ticks away QPR will get a chance and Liverpool need that second goal to give them a cushion."

  26. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    It's all rather quiet at Anfield - slight end of season feel, even though we are still a way away from the end of season. Where's that plane??

    John Hartson at Anfield

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "What an opportunity that is for Liverpool. You talk about a chance, Henderson put that on a plate for Sterling. How much does he want a week? He should have put that away with his eyes closed."

  29. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Free-kick for Liverpool from 25 yards out. Rickie Lambert steps up and... fires his effort into the wall.

  30. MISS!

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    That should have been two - or is that three. This was a bad miss. Watch it on Match of the Day later.

    The ball is flung in from the right by Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling somehow scoops the ball over the bar from three yards out, at the far post.

  31. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    John Hartson at Anfield

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Liverpool need to raise the temp and lift the crowd. I went for a cup of tea at half-time and there were some disgruntled fans around me. They feel Liverpool have given up as a group for fourth place and they finished second last season. They put in a lame performance in the FA Cup semi-final and lost to United and there is the Rodgers situation and Gerrard leaving and they are not a happy bunch of fans and you can sense that atmosphere today"

    Agree Liverpool fans?

  32. CLOSE!

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Adam Lallana must score from eight yards, but he doesn't and slots his low shot half a foot wide, after being played in by Philippe Coutinho. He really should have doubled the lead.

  33. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Liverpool win an early corner after a firm back pass from Richard Dunne to Rob Green has to be hastily cleared by the keeper. The corner comes to nothing.

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    John Hartson at Anfield

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "QPR have had a go but in all fairness it is the correct result that Liverpool go in at half-time ahead. It was a brilliant goal by Coutinho and good vision by Lambert. QPR have threatened and thrown bodies forward but Liverpool could have been two or three up by now."

  38. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    BBC MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at Anfield

    "QPR had goal disallowed early on. Liverpool got stronger and stronger and deserve the lead."

  39. HALF-TIME

  40. STOPPAGE TIME

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    One minute of time added on.

  41. YELLOW CARD

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Sandro goes into the book for going right through Jordan Henderson - that was perhaps borderline yellow-red. Meanwhile, Adam Lallana has to be pulled away from QPR's Clint Hill. No action taken with those two.

  42. GREAT SAVE!

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Steven Gerrard

    ...and Steven Gerrarrrrrrrrd... forces a great save from keeper Rob Green who dives to his left.

  43. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Emre Can is brought down by QPR midfielder Joey Barton - the Reds have a free-kick from 30 yards out.

  44. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Liverpool are pressing for a second before the break. They seem to be in control - but QPR look dangerous on the counter-attack.

  45. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    John Hartson at Anfield

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "There is a very quiet and subdued atmosphere, the QPR players look very subdued and I think maybe it is because of the situation with Rio Ferdinand and the sad loss of his wife. I wonder whether they could have called the game off in respect. It is a terribly sad day all round.

    "It will be very hard for the QPR players and I am sure their thoughts will be with Rio and his late wife Rebecca. It is such a tragic story we are hearing today and it must be difficult for them. He was their team-mate and friend."

  46. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    QPR's Charlie Austin looks for his 18th goal, but strikes his effort over the bar from 20 yards.

  47. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR

    Raheem Sterling puts the ball in the net from Jordan Henderson's pass - but he is at least a couple of yards offside. Sterling began the move about 40 yards from goal.

    Big shout from the Liverpool players for a penalty. Adam Lallana plays a sumptuous ball to Raheem Sterling, whose subsequent cross appears to strike Clint Hill's hand in the area.

    Philippe Coutinho

    "That is a great goal from Liverpool. It was a break on the counter-attack and brilliant work from Lambert his vision to see Coutinho on the back post who controlled it perfectly and scored with an exquisite finish."

  53. GOAL

    Liverpool 1-0 QPR - Philippe Coutinho

    Philippe Coutinho

    Slightly against the run of play. Striker Rickie Lambert, who has had a bright start, wins possession then drives into the area and lays the ball square to Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian picks his spot - high left of the keeper - and finds it with a brilliantly placed strike.

  54. YELLOW CARD

    Liverpool 0-0 QPR

    Steven Gerrard picks up an early yellow card for bringing down Leroy Fer. The usual "he'll have to be careful now" thought is going through many a spectator's mind.

  55. Post update

    BBC Match of the Day commentator

    "Liverpool are limping to the finish line. Expectancy levels were too high in the first place. The transfer of Luis Suarez and injury to Daniel Sturridge proved too damaging.

    "Bad signings have been made. Mario Balotelli has been a disaster, but there is a deeper malaise. The team just doesn't seem ruthless enough to stretch that extra inch for glory.

    "QPR fans won't agree of course, but even the diehards must know that escape now is but a dream. They could need three more wins from their final four games. Three of those matches are away.

    "They've triumphed on their travels just twice this season and only once, ever, at Anfield - 24 years ago."

    "She was a fantastic loving mother to our three beautiful children. She will be missed as a wife, sister, aunt, daughter and granddaughter. She will live on in our memory, as a guide and inspiration."

    Many of Ferdinand's peers, colleagues and former colleagues have posted sympathy messages.

    QPR tweeted: QPR players will wear black armbands today in the wake of the sad passing of Rio Ferdinand's wife, Rebecca

  74. QPR seniors rally troops

    Liverpool v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Meanwhile, QPR boss Chris Ramsey revealed how his senior players have been trying to boost the confidence of team-mates before the match at Anfield.

    Rangers had to make do with a goalless draw against West Ham last weekend which left them four points adrift of safety with four matches remaining.

    "They are good characters and have a lot of years behind them so it's just maybe a little chat here and there to the group just to make sure everybody realises there is a task ahead that we are capable of overcoming," Ramsey said.

    "I think they are all quite self-motivated at the moment because everybody wants to stay in the division.

  75. TEAM NEWS

    Liverpool v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Here's the team news:

    Liverpool make three changes to the side that lost to Hull. Steven Gerrard returns to captain the side, and replaces Joe Allen. Forward Adam Lallana is in the starting XI for the first time since 22 March. The midfielder comes in to take the place of Jordon Ibe. And Rickie Lambert replaces Mario Balotelli.

    QPR make one change as midfielder Leroy Fer replaces striker Bobby Zamora.

    Liverpool XI: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Lovren, Johnson, Gerrard, Henderson, Lallana, Sterling, Coutinho, Lambert.

    QPR XI: Green, Onuoha, Dunne, Caulker, Hill, Phillips, Barton, Sandro, Henry, Fer, Austin

  76. 'Liverpool confidence dented'

    Liverpool v QPR (15:00 BST)

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers

    It's the time of the season when we take a good, hard look at contrasting fortunes. In the case of this match, Liverpool are fighting for a place in Europe, while QPR are battling for survival.

    But... but... there are similarities because both managers will no doubt be disappointed by how their respective teams have performed - Hoops boss Chris Ramsey maybe less so.

    The Reds, who finished runners-up last season, are seven points behind bitter rivals Manchester United, who occupy the fourth Champions League place.

    "This isn't a team lacking effort or commitment. They will fight right to the end," Rodgers said of his own team.

    "We won 10 out of 13 and confidence was high. In couple of big games we fell short and that can dent your confidence."
