Manchester: Liverpool F.C. captain Steven Gerrard declared his side "genuine contenders" for the Premier League title after scoring two penalties in a 3-0 victory at Manchester United on Sunday.

Gerrard broke the deadlock at Old Trafford with a 34th-minute spot-kick after Rafael da Silva was penalised for handball and made it 2-0 a minute into the second half following a foul on Joe Allen by Phil Jones. (Match report)

He could have had a hat-trick of penalties, putting a third attempt against the post after Nemanja Vidic had been shown a second yellow card for tripping Daniel Sturridge, before Luis Suarez added a late third. (Match in pics)
