Thanks very much for all your emails and tweets. Sorry if I was not able to publish all of your comments.
The referee brings an end to the game and both teams have to settle for a point after it finishes 1-1 at the Stadium of Light.
Liverpool win a late corner and from Johnson has a free header but he directs his effort wide of the target.
The home fans are unhappy as Sunderland feel they are denied a throw-in after Gerrard's challenge on McClean.
Good break from Sunderland as Sessegnon feeds McClean, but his cross is overhit and flies out of play.
Great save by Mignolet to deny Shelvey and from the rebound the ball bounces too high for Suarez who on the stretch can only head his effort over the top.
There was a long way for the last corner as Pepe Reina changed his boots, but in the end the corner came to nothing as Sunderland cleared the danger.
Wasteful from Sterling as he runs the ball out of the play as he tries to get to the byline as we enter the final 15 minutes at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland try to react to the equaliser as McClean fires in a cross from the left which is cleared by Skrtel.
GOAL: Suarez draws Liverpool level as he scores at the second attempt after seeing his initial shot blocked by Bramble following fine some approach play by Sterling.
Nice run from Sterling and the ball breaks down to Johnson on the edge of the box, but his left-footed effort is well over the top.
Sterling picks up the ball and tries his luck from the edge of the box, but he pulls his shot wide of the target.
From the corner the ball drops to Gerrard who sees his shot deflected up into the air for Skrtel who sees his header saved by Mignolet.
Sterling fires over a great cross to the near post towards Borini and Mignolet can only push the ball out to Shelvey who tees up the onrushing Gerrard who sees his shot clip the outside the post. Close thing for Sunderland there.
Nice build-up from Sunderland sees McClean tee up Colback and the midfielder tries his luck from fully 30 yards only for his shot to fly well wide of the target.
The corner falls to Gardner on the edge of the box and he fires in a full-blooded shot which is blocked by Kelly.
It appears Sunderland are content to sit deep and defend their lead and try and hit Liverpool on the break.
Liverpool go close to equalising as Johnson cuts in from the left and curls a shot off the crossbar with Mignolet well beaten in the Sunderland goal.
Good ball in from Johnson, but there is no Liverpool player in the box to get on the end of it. Wasted opportunity.
Good start to the second half from Liverpool as they win a corner as O'Shea clears Sterling's cross.
There is a change at the break as Titus Bramble comes on for Cuellar who is struggling with a hamstring problem.
What do you make of the first half? What changes if any should either manager make? You can email me direct on email@example.com and you can also now Tweet me: @skysportspeteo.
Good run from Shelvey and his cross is well defended by Sunderland to stop Borini getting on the end of it.
Suarez is booked for diving in the box under a challenge from O'Shea. Third booking of the season already for Suarez.
Liverpool win a free-kick on the edge of the box as Rose brings down Sterling after a fine run by the winger.
Fletcher plays in McClean and his cross is knocked behind by Johnson for a corner. The home side have their tails up.
GOAL: Sunderland take the lead with their effort of the game as Gardner beats two challenges down the right and crosses for Fletcher to slide home from close-range. Poor defending from Liverpool as the goal comes against the run of play.
Liverpool in the ascendancy and Gerrard has a shot from the edge of the box which flies over the crossbar.
Appeals for a penalty waved away as Johnson goes down in the box under pressure from Gardner, but referee Atkinson is having none of it.
Best move of the game as Suarez tees up Borini inside the box and his first-time shot is well kept out by Mignolet.
Liverpool win a free-kick out wide on the right as Rose brings down Sterling. Chance for Liverpool to load the box from Gerrard's cross.
Colback is angry as the referee awards a free-kick against him as he robs the ball off Gerrard in midfield.
Larsson's free-kick from the left evades everybody in the box and flies just wide of the far post much to the relief of Reina in the Liverpool goal.
Good opening for Liverpool as Cuellar underhits his back header to Mignolet and Borini latches onto it and fires in a shot which is saved by the Sunderland keeper. Best chance of the game so far.
Good defending from Johnson as he blocks Sessegnon's cross and the ball comes back off the Sunderland man for a goalkick for the visitors.
Sessegnon tries to get Gardner in down the right, but his pass is overhit and Reina collects the ball.
Sterling plays in Borini down the right side of the box, but his cross is comfortably collected by Mignolet in the Sunderland goal.
Suarez drifts in from the left hand side and gets to the edge of the box before dragging his shot side of the goal.
Worry for Sunderland as Fletcher is down and in need of treatment after being caught by Skrtel and he is in need of some treatment.
Impressive start from Liverpool as they look to take the game to Sunderland, but the home defence has not been tested as yet.
First sight of goal as Suarez feeds Shelvey on the edge of the box, but he drags his shot wide of the target.
Liverpool fan Paul Quigley is surprised Shelvey is starting instead of Sahin. Has Rodgers got this one right?
Alan Robinson in Australia believes Martin O'Neill should have started James McClean on the bench with Louis Saha starting instead. What do you Sunderland fans think?
Lee from Kent is going for a 2-0 win for Liverpool with Suarez and Borini on the mark. What do you think the outcome of the game will be?
Luis Suarez is the 11/1 favourite to open the scoring with Steven Fletcher a 6/1 shot to hit the net first for Sunderland.

Adam Johnson missed out on a Premier League home debut for Sunderland against Liverpool after failing to shake off a thigh injury.The 25-year-old, who picked up the problem on England duty, trained at the end of the week, but had not recovered sufficiently to be considered, and his place in the starting line-up was taken by loan signing Danny Rose.Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers made two changes to the side beaten 2-0 at home by Arsenal last time out as Martin Kelly and Jonjo Shelvey came in for Jose Enrique and Nuri Sahin.
