Benitez: Liverpool away struggles now over

Rafael Benitez feels Liverpool have finally overcome their travel sickness after a second successive away win in the new Premier League season.

The Reds won 2-0 at Sunderland thanks to first goals for the club by both Mohamed Sissoko and Andriy Voronin.

"It was really good, really important for us," said Benitez. "The team showed character.

"We had chances that maybe could have been in before (the second goal) but in this period when everyone was talking about our performances away last season, I think it was really important to win the match."
