    Aldo’s record 1987 - John Aldridge scored in his tenth consecutive League game, including one from the previous season, netting from the spot as we beat Queens Park Rangers 4-0 at Anfield. Craig Johnston had a goal chalked off but also scored, while John Barnes bagged a brace. This goalscoring run remains a joint top-flight record, for any club, and took him to twelve goals already that season. Ex-red Ian Rush was watching in the crowd. Later that day, Kenny Dalglish, Peter Robinson and Chairman John Smith met with Ray Houghton and his wife at a Southport restaurant to agree to his £825,000 transfer from Oxford United, which was finalised two days later. A Euro thumping 2017 – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain bagged his first reds goal as we trounced Maribor 7-0 in Slovenia, our best ever away win in Europe and the joint record away victory in the UEFA Champions League. Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah scored twice each, with Philippe Coutinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold also scoring. Mo’s ton up 2020 – We drew 2-2 at Everton behind closed doors with Sadio Mané giving us an early lead before Michael Keane levelled. Mohamed Salah reached a century of reds goals before Dominic Calvert-Lewin equalised. Richarlison was dismissed for the home side right at the death for a late tackle on Thiago Alcântara which ruled him out for more than two months. Jordan Henderson had a very late winner cruelly ruled out for offside by VAR, but the game was marred by Jordan Pickford’s wild challenge resulting in a serious injury to Virgil van Dijk Triple centurions 2009 – Ryan Babel, Yossi Benayoun and Javier Mascherano all reached a century of reds appearances as we lost 1-0 at Sunderland to the freak ‘beach ball’ goal, as Pepe Reina was wrong-footed by a fifth-minute Darren Bent strike that should have been ruled out, one of his five goals against us to date. Ex-red Bolo Zenden and future red Jordan Henderson both featured for the home side. 1896 – We lost a top-flight fixture at Sunderland’s Newcastle Road ground by the odd goal in seven, having gone in 3-0 down at the break. Full-back Archie Goldie struck his only reds goal before we then fell 4-1 behind, with Donald Gow scoring an own goal for the reds and George Allan also on target late on to make the score slightly more respectable. Jimmy Hannah and Andrew Hamilton struck twice apiece for the home side. 1990’s Euro trips 1995 - Mark Wright excelled as we held Brøndby IF to a goalless draw in Denmark, although we lost the Anfield return 1-0 to crash out of the UEFA Cup at the Second Round stage. 1996 - Robbie Fowler and John Barnes netted as we beat Sion 2-1 after falling behind to a Christophe Bonvin strike in Switzerland at the same stage of the European Cup Winners’ Cup.

Ex-red Jimmy Case was also amongst the scorers, with Steve Foster and Andy Ritchie also netting as Alan Kennedy played his hundredth League game for the reds. Derby disappointment 2010 - We tamely lost 2-0 at Goodison Park, with boss Roy Hodgson laughably claiming after the match that it had been our best performance of the season to date.
