Crewe Alexandra 0 Liverpool 3

The Reds cruised to a 3-0 win over Crewe in a game which saw a first game for Andriy Voronin. The Reds welcomes back many of the first team for this game and played two different sides in the match.

Inside the first few minutes of the game Steven Gerrard had hit the bar with a shot. The Reds played it around well on the day and made Crewe work hard to get a touch of the ball. In fact it was twenty minutes before the home side tested Pepe Reina in the Reds' goal.

The Reds then swept past Crewe to score twice in quick succession. Voronin shot on goal but Crewe keeper Williams could only parry the shot. Lee Peltier reacted fast to score the rebound. Mintues later and a Riise cross was converted by Peter Crouch to make it 2-0.

Voronin and Riise both had chances before the half was out to extend the lead with Crewe rarely looking likely to score.

The second alf saw a new side for the Reds and also a single goal to round off the win. That said the Reds were always looking likely that they would score whoever was on the pitch. This was Crewe's first game of pre-season and it showed at times.

It was just short of the hour mark when the Reds made it 3-0. Ray Putterill created himself some space on the edge of the box before drilling one past Tomlinson in the Crewe goal.

\r\nAll in all this was another good work out for the Reds and also an important step for some of the younger element of the squad to learn the game more.
