    Mo the best 2018 - Mohamed Salah was named the PFA Player of the Year, after his first campaign with the reds that eventually yielded 44 goals in 52 games in all competitions as he helped us to reach the UEFA Champions League Final in Kiev. To Cardiff once more 2006 - We beat Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford in the FA Cup Semi-final. John Arne Riise’s free-kick opened the scoring before Luis García extended our lead early in the second half with a sublime volley.

En route to gay Paree 1981 - Howard Gayle came on as a substitute for the injured Kenny Dalglish after just nine minutes and ran the Bayern München defence ragged, before later himself being substituted by Jimmy Case. We held the German champions to a 1-1 draw in the Olympic Stadium, with Ray Kennedy putting us in front with just seven minutes left before Karl-Heinz Rummenigge equalised, to make it through to our third European Cup Final in five years, on away goals after a goalless first meeting. Boss Bob Paisley had called this “our biggest test since Rome”, prior to the game. A first treble 1905 - Forward Sam Raybould became the first reds player to score a hat-trick against Manchester United as we beat them 4-0 at Anfield in a Second Division fixture. Jack Cox netted the other goal as this victory secured our promotion, with reds’ fans carrying the players on their shoulders after the final whistle in celebration. 1916 - Fred Pagnam also struck three times as we thumped United 7-1 in a Wartime League match at Anfield. Ernie Pinkney and Walter Wadsworth were also on target with Dave Watson netting twice. Held by the Blues 2008 – We took the lead in the first leg of our Champions League Semi-final against Chelsea shortly before half-time through Dirk Kuyt, before failing to take a number of other good chances. We suffered a sucker punch in the final seconds of time added on when John Arne Riise headed into his own net. This was the first time we had faced the same team in European competition in four consecutive seasons. 2010 – We also suffered European disappointment, losing 1-0 in the first leg of our UEFA Europa League Semi-final at Club Atlético de Madrid, with the reds having to make the long journey to Spain by train following volcanic eruptions over Iceland causing all flights to be grounded. Diego Forlán gave the home side an early lead with one of his four strikes past the reds, with Yossi Benayoun having an equaliser wrongly ruled out for offside. Reds farewells 1950 - Winger William Watkinson made his 24th and final reds appearance in our 2-1 defeat at Portsmouth, with Albert Stubbins bagging our consolation.

Jordan Henderson and Dirk Kuyt both struck the woodwork before we fell behind. Under twelve thousand 1959 - We hosted our lowest post-war League crowd of only 11,976 as we beat Sc***horpe United 3-0 in the Second Division. Alan Arnell netted his 35th and final reds goal, with Billy Liddell and Fred Morris also on the scoresheet. Happy birthday to the reserves 1956 - Left-back Brian Kettle was born in Prescot. He signed for the reds in May 1973 but only made four senior appearances as his route to the first-team was blocked first by Alec Lindsay, then Joey Jones and Alan Kennedy, and he moved to Wigan Athletic in August 1980. 1983 – Former Finnish reserves striker Daniel Sjölund was born in Marieham.

He joined the Academy from Wigan Athletic in 2007, but was released in the summer of 2014. 2001 – Left-back Morgan Boyes was born in Chester.

This was the first ever meeting between the two sides. Some things never change as Everton were denied a penalty and protested a number of decisions made by referee Herbie Arthur, with the ceremony to award the trophy and winners’ medals minted by Bovril having to be abandoned. Mixed fortunes against the other Blues We have twice faced Birmingham City in First Division matches on this day in history. 1933 - Gordon Hodgson grabbed the only goal of the game in L4, with centre–forward Harold Barton playing his hundredth reds game. 1964 - Roger Hunt was on target in a 3-1 defeat at St. Andrews.

Roger Hunt and Kevin Lewis were on target, with Dave Hickson bagging his 38th and last goal for the club. Tony for the only time 1959 - Ex-reds inside-right Tony Rowley won his only senior cap for Wales. Their 4-1 defeat by Northern Ireland in Belfast was enough to hand the Ulster side a share of the British International Championships with England that season. This cap was even more special in that Rowley was a Tranmere Rovers player at the time, then in the Third Division. Welsh Englishman 2001 - John Welsh scored for England Under-16’s as they lost 3-1 to Italy in the European Championships at Bramall Lane, with future red Alberto Aquilani on the winning side.

Phil Babb and future red Robbie Keane also played.

Richard devalued 2008 – Ex-reserves defender Richard Money resigned as Manager of Walsall having failed to receive assurances over transfer funds.

First caps 1995 - Brad Friedel won his first cap as a Brøndby IF player, and 28th in total as the USA lost 1-0 to Belgium in a friendly in Molenbeek. 2008 – Future reds reserves forward Nikola Sarić played for Denmark Under-18’s as they beat Estonia 1-0 in Tallinn. 2019 – Bobby Duncan and Curtis Jones both featured as England Under-18’s lost 1-0 to the Czech Republic in a friendly in Dubai.

    Michael’s golden ball 2002 - We beat Derby County 2-0 at Anfield, with double goalscorer Michael Owen being presented with the Ballon d’Or trophy for European Football of the Year before the match. A minute’s silence was also observed before kick-off, in memory of the bereaved and survivors of the Hillsborough disaster. Steven Gerrard made his hundredth League appearance in this game. On the same day, young reserves forward John Miles left for Stoke City on a free transfer. He only made one senior appearance for the Potters before moving on to Crewe Alexandra after being released at the end of that season. On the way to Rome 1977 - We reached our first European Cup Final after beating Zürich 3-0 at Anfield in the second leg of our Semi-final, with Jimmy Case netting a brace and Kevin Keegan grabbing the other, to go through 6-1 on aggregate. Keegan said afterwards, “The only reason I have stayed here is to get to the European Cup Final, and now I’ve done that.” Trouncing the Toffees 2016 – Daniel Sturridge reached a half century of reds goals as we thumped Everton 4-0 at Anfield. Divock Origi and Mamadou Sakho, in his final reds game, both headed in shortly before the break before Ramiro Funes Mori was dismissed and then Sturridge struck. The scoring was rounded out by Philippe Coutinho. 1974 - We were held to a goalless draw in the Anfield derby. We go again 2014 – We secured a joint club record eleventh consecutive League win when we won 3-2 at Norwich City, also a joint club record sixth straight away League victory. This was also a joint club record 25th consecutive top-flight League game in which we had netted. Raheem Sterling and Luis Suárez struck early on as the Uruguayan became the first red to score thirty League goals in a season since Ian Rush in 1987, with Gary Hooper pulling a goal back after the break. Sterling netted again with Robert Snodgrass heading in as we hung on for victory. This left the reds needing just seven points from the last three games to claim the title. Happy birthday Ernie 1902 - Left-back Ernie Blenkinsop was born in Cudworth, Yorkshire. He played 71 reds games without scoring, having won 26 England caps by the time he arrived from Sheffield Wednesday for £5,000 in March 1934. He moved on to Cardiff City in November 1937.

The goals came from John Barnes, Ray Houghton and Ian Rush. 1988 - We also faced the Canaries, holding them to a goalless draw at Carrow Road as they became the first team against whom we had twice drawn a blank in the League that season, so holding off our League title celebrations for another three days.
