Gerrard penalty secures Liverpool win

7:32 am on 11 March 2013

Liverpool ended Tottenham Hotspur's 12-match unbeaten run in English football's Premier League when a late Steven Gerrard penalty gave them a 3-2 win at Anfield after the London club had led 2-1 with little more than 20 minutes to play.

Liverpool are up to sixth on the table after denting third-placed Spurs' hopes of closing in on second-placed Manchester City.

In the day's other premier league match, Newcastle United came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1 at St James' Park.
