Liverpool FC earned a narrow but deserved victory against FC Anji Makhachkala to climb above the visitors to the top of UEFA Europa League Group A.

Five days after recording a belated first home win in the Premier League this season, Brendan Rodgers' evolving side prevailed by the same 1-0 scoreline, Stewart Downing striking from the edge of the box in the 53rd minute. It was Liverpool's 550th European goal and means they will travel to face Anji in Moscow on 8 November with a two-point advantage over Guus Hiddink's men, beaten here for the first time in 14 fixtures.
