QPR's survival hopes were dealt a major blow as Luis Suarez inspired Liverpool
to a comprehensive victory despite the absence of manager Brendan Rodgers.
It was a dreadful end to a roller coaster 2012 for the west Londoners in which
there have been plenty more troughs than peaks.
Liverpool dominated from the outset and coasted to victory even without
Rodgers, who was unwell and too sick to be on the touchline.
Assistant manager Colin Pascoe and coach Mike Marsh deputised at Loftus Road,
which witnessed two Suarez goals inside the opening 16 minutes.
Daniel Agger nodded the visitors further ahead in the 28th minute and, despite
an improved second-half performance from the hosts, Liverpool were never in
any real danger of losing grip of proceedings.
