Carling Cup: Exeter City v Liverpool, St James Park, 19:45pm 24/8/2011 (1-3)

A solid performance by a strong side, with a few players getting some match practice that they had not quite had, saw Liverpool progress through this potential banana-skin of a tie.

Luis Suarez starred, scoring one and assisting both the others, scored by Maxi and Carroll. Exeter scored courtesy of a late penalty, conceded by the returning Martin Skrtel. Despite that, it was good to see the big central defender playing, particularly in view of the departure of Sotirios Kyrgiakos.

Whilst Exeter managed one or two moments in addition to the penalty when they threatened the Liverpool goal, Liverpool were rarely troubled and this was a comfortable win.

Exactly what was wanted going into what will surely be a tougher game against Bolton, on Saturday evening.
