Benayoun's treble bombs Burnley ;)

Yossi Benayoun. Is he is really underrated? He is quite decent actually thought not a world class yet. His game play was simple but clever and very effective. Plus the most important is he doesn't complain when he was benched, unlike Ryan Babel. In this match against Burnley, he proves that he really belong to Liverpool's first team. Playing in heart of midfield area because of the absent of Mascherano, Banayoun showed that he can play nicely with Gerrard and Torres. His first goal of the night was a result of his brilliant skill running around Graham Alexander(Burnley's fullback) before passing the ball into the bottom corner of the goal. His second was nicely setup by combination of great play by Torres and Gerrard and he got his hat-trick when he beat the offside trap to tapped in Voronin's pass. He was also involved in Liverpool's other goal when his shot was parried by Burnley's goalkeeper into the path of Dirk Kuyt, who comfortably slotted the ball home. No wonder that he was choosen as MOTM as he was involved in all four Liverpool goals. Final result: Liverpool 4 Burnley 0

With this win, Liverpool manage to climb the table up to fifth place above Arsenal, who were beaten by Manchester City. At the top are still Chelsea, who need last gasp winner from Florent Malouda to beat Stoke 2-1. Next for Liverpool is West Ham United during Hari Raya. I hope Liverpool can continue their recent good form so I can celebrate Hari Raya happily.
