Reds galore 1952 - Our record home attendance was set, as 61,905 crammed into Anfield to watch us beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 in the FA Cup Fourth Round. Bob Paisley and Cyril Done were on target inside the first nine minutes that day. Unfortunately, we went out at Burnley in the next round. Most recently 2014 – We were held to a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion, with future Baggie Daniel Sturridge putting the reds in front.

Double century 2003 - We secured our 200th Premiership win. A Milan Baroš header and a Steven Gerrard thunderbolt give us an early cushion at West Ham United. A late Emile Heskey goal, his third header in as many League games, wrapped up a comfortable 3-0 win over the Hammers, who were relegated at the end of the season.
