Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy was delighted with his double in victory over Newcastle United.

Steven Gerrard also struck in the win.

Bellamy, who needed four stitches in a cut eye after an apparent elbow from Fabricio Coloccini, said: "I don't know why but I always seem to do well against Newcastle.

"I had a great time there under a great manager in Bobby Robson - but now they seem to be a lucky team for me.

"The most important thing was to get back to winning ways and it was a good victory."
