  • "Robben's first goal was a wonderful demonstration of his ability to run with the ball and shoot with unerring accuracy. The winger was 25 yards inside his own half when Daniel Sturridge, Gerrard's replacement, lost the ball. Robben's body movement took out both Cahill and Smalling..His finish was low and precise..." Arjen Robben, 57' (56:25)
  • "and the defending was loose again two minutes later when Dirk Kuyt crossed from the right for the substitute Huntelaar, who headed in the second goal. In the process Huntelaar clashed heads with Chris Smalling and both had to go off, the Manchester United player on a stretcher." Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, 58' (57:56)
  • "...Then, finally, Robben curling in the left-foot shot that deflected off Cahill for the final flourish." Arjen Robben, 90' +2 (91:35)
