Luis Suarez started his first Europa League away game in his side’s final Group A fixture against Udinese, but it was Jordan Henderson who got the all important goal for Liverpool.

Henderson first ever European goal after 23 minutes ensured the Reds finished top of Group A and qualified alongside Russians Anzhi Makhachkala.

Suarez went close on a few occasions and Henderson went close to getting a second goal. But the opening goal was enough to gain the win.

Giovanni Pasquale was sent off late on for a second bookable offence for Udinese who finished bottom of the table.
