Sunderland 1-0 Liverpool – (The Famous Beach Ball Goal)Video Highlights

Darren Bent continued his rich vein of form by netting a freak goal that went in off a beach ball in a 1-0 win over Liverpool at the Stadium of Light.The England hopeful controversially scored after just five minutes, his effort going in off the ball, which had found its way onto the pitch from the away fans, to deepen the gloom for Liverpool who dropped to their fourth defeat of the season with just nine games played.

The result saw Liverpool slip to eighth in the Premier League, seven points behind new leaders Manchester United, and while it is still too early to write off their title hopes entirely, it will now take a quite remarkable turnaround for Rafa Benitez’s side to end the club’s 18-year wait for the title.

Sunderland, who continue to impress this season, leapfrogged their opponents and moved into seventh.

Deprived of their three most influential players – Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres were missing through injury, while Javier Mascherano started on the bench due to the rigours of his recent World Cup qualifiers for Argentina – Liverpool struggled throughout.
