Liverpool winger Stewart Downing was delighted to get on the scoresheet in victory over Wigan Athletic.

Downing opened the scoring in the 4-0 rout.

"It was nice to get a goal, no matter how they come.

"The manager said to me to try to get in a position to score goals and if you get in the box, you have a chance.

"It was a great ball from Philippe and I was able to make a good contact on it to get it past the keeper."
