European semi-finals
2001 - We became only the second team ever to stop Barcelona from scoring in both legs of a European tie, winning our UEFA Cup second leg at Anfield 1-0. Gary McAllister, who scored from the spot past future reds keeper Pepe Reina after Patrick Kluivert’s unnecessary handball, made his 700th club appearance in this game. Sander Westerveld later had Kopite hearts in mouths when he missed a back-pass that just rolled past his post.

1966 - We beat Celtic 2-0 at Anfield to reach the European Cup Winners’ Cup Final, in only our second season in European competition, with the goals coming from Tommy Smith and Geoff Strong and each side striking the bar. Strong’s headed goal came despite him having damaged a knee cartilage, with the BBC’s Kenneth Wolstenholme commentating, “the cripple has scored”. Celtic still claim that they had a late Bobby Lennox goal incorrectly disallowed for offside, which would have taken them through to the Final at Hampden Park against Borussia Dortmund.

Derby joy at Goodison
2003 - Michael Owen netted in his sixth consecutive League match for the first time in his career, which was his first ever derby goal. Danny Murphy struck the winner after David Unsworth’s equaliser as we won 2-1. Everton had both David Weir and Gary Naysmith sent off.
1897 - We also took the short trip across the park when Tom Bradshaw netted as we lost a friendly 2-1.

A treble Jack at Anfield
1913 - Forward Jack Parkinson bagged a hat-trick in our 5-0 League defeat of Bolton Wanderers, with Arthur Metcalf also netting as outside-right Arthur Goddard struck his 77th and last reds goal.

300 up for Sami
2008 - Sami Hyypiä played his 300th League game as we won 2-0 at Fulham, thanks to goals from Jermaine Pennant and Peter Crouch, as we moved to within a single point of Champions League qualification ahead of our Semi-final first leg of that campaign’s tournament. Pennant’s strike was our 400th away goal in the Premiership and his third and final reds goal.

Wembley despair
2015 - Philippe Coutinho put us ahead in our FA Cup Semi-final against Aston Villa, but future red Christian Benteke bagged one of his seven goals past us to date before the break. Fabian Delph scored the winner as the reds disappointed on the big stage, although Mario Balotelli had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside.

Up against the Irons
2010 - We beat West Ham United 3-0 at Anfield, with ex-Hammer Yossi Benayoun putting us in front with his stomach from a Steven Gerrard free-kick, before David N’Gog doubled our lead inside the opening half hour. Out final strike came from a Sotirios Kyrgiakos toe-poke that rebounded off the post and keeper Robert Green before crossing the line.
1958 – Billy Liddell struck as we drew 1-1 at Upton Park in our penultimate game of a season in which we finished fourth in the Second Division.

Double Anfield debutants
1902 - Welsh inside-left Dickie Morris made his reds bow as a Sam Raybould goal gave us victory over Bury.
1954 - Forward and fellow countryman Tony Rowley netted on his reds debut as we thumped Middlesbrough 4-1. Sammy Smyth bagged a brace, with Billy Liddell also on the scoresheet.

Draws galore
1952 - Our 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield was our nineteenth League draw of the season, our highest in any one season. The legendary Billy Liddell netted our goal.

Thumped at home
1930 - We suffered our heaviest ever home League defeat as Bobby Gurney scored the first four of his sixteen goals against us in Sunderland’s 6-0 victory. George Lawley and Albert Wood also netted.
1947 - We also entertained the Wearsiders, with Albert Stubbins grabbing the only goal of another top-flight meeting.

Mixed fortunes against Manchester United
1971 - We won 2-0 at Old Trafford, thanks to Steve Heighway and a Paul Edwards own goal.
1997 - We lost 3-1 at Anfield, with Gary Pallister netting twice for the visitors, and Andy Cole also on target with one of his eleven goals against the reds. John Barnes bagged our consolation, his 108th and final reds goal.

First and last strikes
1957 - Right-back Don Campbell netted his first reds goal as we beat Bristol Rovers 4-1 at Anfield in the Second Division. Jimmy Melia and Tony Rowley were also on target, with Billy Liddell converting a penalty and Geoff Bradford scoring the last of his five goals past us.
1965 – Forward Phil Chisnall bagged his second and final reds goal as we beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield, with Geoff Strong adding the second.

Keetley’s farewell
1924 - Joe Keetley made the last of his nine senior reds appearances as we drew 1-1 at Middlesbrough, with Danny Shone bagging our goal.
1975 - We also played at Ayresome Park, going down 1-0 in another top-flight meeting.

Big wins
1935 - We thumped Stoke City 5-0 at Anfield, with Lance Carr netting his first reds goal. Fred Howe and Berry Nieuwenhuys were also on target as Vic Wright bagged a brace.
1969 - Another top-flight match ended 4-0 in L4, with Bobby Graham netting twice against Ipswich Town and Peter Thompson and Ian St. John also on the scoresheet.

Towards the double
1986 - We won 2-1 at West Bromwich Albion, with Craig Madden’s goal being the Baggies’ last strike against the reds until April 2011. Goals from the old one-two of Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush kept us on course for the double.

Gunners again
1980 - We played our third consecutive game against Arsenal, with Kenny Dalglish netting in a 1-1 First Division draw at Anfield, with Brian Talbot on target for the Gunners with one of his six strikes past us. This followed the first two of our four FA Cup Semi-final encounters that season.

Mighty Mouse on target
1978 - Ex-red Kevin Keegan netted England’s goal as they drew with Brazil in a friendly at Wembley. Future reds goalkeeping coach Joe Corrigan was between the sticks that day.

A centenary special
1982 - We took part in a “Special Centenary Friendly”, drawing 1-1 with Northern Irish side Glentoran at The Oval, with Mark Lawrenson on the scoresheet.

      Happy birthdays
      1938 - Legendary centre-forward ‘Sir’ Roger Hunt was born in Golborne, Lancashire. He netted 285 times in 492 reds games. His 245 League goals remain a club record, and he has the distinction of being the first red to win the World Cup while at Anfield. His club medal haul includes two League championships, FA Cup, Second Division title and FA Charity Shield.
      1966 - Hunt bagged both goals as England beat France 2-0 in a World Cup Finals group game at Wembley, on his 28th birthday. Clubmate Ian Callaghan also played, winning only his second cap.
      1948 - Reserves keeper Frank Lane was born in Wallasey. He signed from Tranmere Rovers for £15,000 in September 1971, but only made two first-team appearances, deputising for Ray Clemence. Unfortunately, he distinguished himself for all the wrong reasons on his debut in September 1972 by safely catching a deep cross from Derby County’s Alan Hinton and then stepping backwards over his own goal-line, to help us on our way to a 2-1 defeat.
      New signings
      2005 - Peter Crouch signed from Southampton for £7m on a four-year contract. He failed to score in his first nineteen reds games, but went on to bag thirteen goals in his final thirty games of his first season, helping us to claim the FA Cup in May. He went on to score 42 times in 134 outings in total before being sold to Portsmouth for a fee of up to £11m in July 2008.
      2016 – Estonian centre-half Ragnar Klavan signed from Augsburg for £4.2m. He struck twice in 53 outings before moving on to Cagliari for £2m in August 2018. On the same day, keeper Ádám Bogdán joined Wigan Athletic on loan, playing seventeen times as the Latics were relegated to League One.
      Keeping no more
      2007 - Jerzy Dudek signed for Real Madrid after 186 reds appearances, helping us to glory in Istanbul, as well as the Worthington Cup in 2003. He turned out just twelve times for the Spanish giants before retiring in May 2011.
      2018 - Danny Ward was sold to Leicester City for £12.5m after just three senior reds games. He has so far played nine times in cup competitions for the Foxes.
      Auf wiedersehen
      2001 - Christian Ziege was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for £4m, only a year after his acrimonious transfer from Middlesbrough. He had notched twice in 32 appearances whilst at Anfield, including coming off the bench in Cardiff for the first leg of the treble.
      Billy hitched
      1946 – Billy Liddell married Phyllis at Island Road Methodist Church in Garston, just three days after Bob Paisley had got wed.

      1999 - We beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at Molineux, thanks to goals from Robbie Fowler and Karl-Heinz Riedle.
      Back amongst the big boys
      2001 - We were drawn to play either Haka of Finland or Israeli side Maccabi Haifa in a two-legged Champions League qualifier, which would be our first ever games in the new format of the European Cup.
      Youngsters on target
      2008 – András Simon scored as Hungary Under-19’s lost 2-1 to Germany in the European Championship Finals in the Czech Republic. On the same day, future red Daniel Sturridge scored his only Under-19’s goal while winning his third and last cap at this level, as England beat Greece 3-0 in the same competition, with future reds loanee Victor Moses also featuring.
      1993 - Robbie Fowler struck as England Under-18’s beat the Netherlands 4-1 in a European Championship Finals group game in Walsall

      A princely start
