    24th January

    Luis born 1987 – Uruguayan forward Luis Suárez was born in Salto. He signed from Ajax for a club record fee of up to €26.5m in January 2011 and bagged an impressive 82 goals in 133 dazzling reds outings. He helped us to claim the League Cup before joining Barcelona for a club record £75m in July 2014. Derby disappointments We have faced our nearest neighbours twice on this day in history, without tasting victory. 1995 - We were held to a goalless draw at Anfield in the Premiership, with ex-red David Burrows somewhat fortunate to stay on the pitch after hacking down Robbie Fowler hav
  2. Off the mark 2018 – Dutch centre-half Virgil van Dijk scored on his reds bow as we beat Everton 2-1 in the FA Cup Third Round at Anfield. James Milner opened the scoring from the spot after a foul on Adam Lallana, with Gylfi Sigurdsson netting the most recent of his four goals past us to level the scores. Our new record signing nodded in the winner late on to send the crowd into raptures. Happy birthdays 1957 - David Fairclough was born in Liverpool. He signed pro terms in January 1974, bagging 55 goals in 154 reds games, two-fifths of which were from off the bench. The bionic carrot
  3. Off goes Rowdy 1971 - Ron Yeats signed for Tranmere Rovers. The giant Scottish centre-half had netted sixteen goals in 454 outings for the reds, captaining us to two League titles, our first FA Cup, Second Division title and FA Charity Shield. He was one of Bill Shankly’s first and most inspired signings, arriving for just £22,000 from Dundee United in July 1961. A new home record 1972 - We registered our 21st consecutive home League win as a Peter Cormack goal handed us a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. This was a club record, and a record in the top-flight until we reached 24 in Ju
  4. Nic’s debut 2001 - Nicolas Anelka made his red bow as we won 2-1 at Aston Villa with goals from Jari Litmanen, gifted to him by Peter Schmeichel, and Vladimír Šmicer. Jari also struck a spot-kick against the post. Bowyer off again 2005 - We equalled a club record of eight consecutive League wins with our 2-0 defeat of Newcastle United, our 250th victory in the Premier League, a sequence that eventually rose to ten. Josemi came off the bench late on to make his 35th and final reds appearance, with Michael Owen making his first return to Anfield as an ex-red while Lee Bowyer was sent of
  5. Most recently 2007 - We thumped Portsmouth 4-1 in a Premiership fixture at Anfield to end their six-game winning streak away from home. We took the lead through Yossi Benayoun and a Sylvain Distain own goal before Benjani pulled one back shortly after the break, one of his four goals past us. Fernando Torres then added a brace to make the points safe. This was our 300th home Premier League game, and Pompey’s 500th top-flight defeat. 2012 – We beat Fulham 4-0 in L4 as Stewart Downing finally provided his first League goal and assist for the reds. Martin Škrtel and Steven Gerrard netted in t
  6. Ablett’s able start 1986 - Gary Ablett made his reds bow, replacing the injured Alan Hansen as we held Charlton Athletic to a goalless draw at Selhurst Park. He went on to net just once in 147 games for the reds. Centre-forward Alan Irvine also made the first of his four senior reds appearances in this game. 1924 – Full-back James Garner played the first of his five senior reds games in our goalless Anfield top-flight encounter with Bolton Wanderers. Bienvenue Nicolas 2001 - Nicolas Anelka signed on loan from Paris Saint-Germain. He netted five times in 22 reds games, but was not ta
  7. Martin born 1984 - Centre-back Martin Škrtel was born in Handlová. The tough Slovakian signed from Zenit St. Petersburg for £6.5m in January 2008 to become our most expensive defender to date. He notched eighteen goals in 320 games in total, including one in our Carling Cup win at Wembley in February 2012, moving on to Fenerbahçe SK for £5.5m in July 2016. Unfortunately, he also put through his own net a joint club record eight times. 2010 - He skippered the side for the first time as we were held to a goalless draw at Anfield by Utrecht in our final UEFA Europa League group game. Dirk
  8. One reds legend for another 1980 - Ian Rush made his reds bow, replacing Kenny Dalglish who was missing his first League game after 147 consecutive appearances. We drew 1-1 at Ipswich Town with substitute Jimmy Case on target, and Alan Brazil netting for the home side. Red awards 1998 - Michael Owen was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year, following his breathtaking arrival on the international scene at that summer’s World Cup in France. 2006 - Council members voted unanimously to award Steven Gerrard the Honorary Freeman of Knowsley Borough, the first time anyone had been so h
  9. Jimmy’s treble 1975 - Jimmy Case scored a hat-trick as we beat Polish side Slask Wroclaw 3-0 at Anfield in our UEFA Cup Third Round second leg tie, with Ray Clemence a virtual spectator, to progress 5-1 on aggregate on our way to claiming the trophy for the second time. 3,000 up 1949 - Willie Fagan struck our 3,000th League goal as we lost 3-2 at Huddersfield Town, with Ken Brierley also on target. Vic Metcalfe netted the first of his six goals against the reds, with John McKenna and Jeff Taylor also on the scoresheet. If you like Croatian players 2000 - Igor Bišcan made his re
  10. Luis torments the Canaries again 2013 - Luis Suárez scored four sublime goals as we thumped Norwich City 5-1 at Anfield, his third hat-trick against the Canaries, becoming the first reds player to score three trebles against the same team. His third goal was his fiftieth League strike for the club, in his 86th Premiership game. He also set up Raheem Sterling for our fifth after Bradley Johnson had netted a late consolation. More trebles for and against 1973 - Ian Callaghan bagged a hat-trick as we beat Hull City 3-1 in a League Cup Fourth Round replay at Anfield, our first treble in t
  11. New bosses 1959 - Bill Shankly was appointed reds boss, with the intention that he would take over in the New Year. However, he was in place just thirteen days later. He had led Huddersfield Town to 49 wins in 129 League games in charge, but could not get them out of the Second Division. The great man achieved his aim of turning the reds into a ‘bastion of invincibility’ as he led us out of the Second Division and then to three League titles, two FA Cups, the UEFA Cup and FA Charity Shield, before shocking the football world with his resignation in July 1974. 2010 - Tom Werner took over

The grandson of post-war utility man Bill Jones, he signed from Crewe Alexandra for £300,000 in October 1991 and played 243 times for the reds without ever getting on the scoresheet, before injury ended his career. He helped us to win the FA Cup and Coca Cola Cup in his eight years at Anfield. 1911 - Outside-right Berry Nieuwenhuys was born in Kroonstad in South Africa. He signed from Germiston Calies in September 1933 and struck 79 times in 257 reds games, helping us to the League title in 1947 before joining Arsenal later th

    Stevie’s four hundred 2007 - Steven Gerrard opened the scoring from a free-kick in his 400th reds game as we faced Arsenal for the 200th time in all competitions. This Premiership game at Anfield ended in a 1-1 draw with the returning Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres both limping out of the action. Cesc Fàbregas struck the late equaliser. Happy birthday Milan 1981 - Milan Baroš was born in Valašské Meziříčí in Czechoslovakia. He struck 27 times in 108 reds games after signing from Baník Ostrava for £3.2m in July 2001.

    Chico’s first 1983 – Steve Nicol grabbed his first reds goal, a late winner in our 1-0 League victory at Queens Park Rangers. Reds in Moscow 2002 - We became the first English team to beat Spartak Moskva on their own patch as we came from behind through a Michael Owen hat-trick of header, left-foot and right-foot shots handed us a 3-1 Champions League group win. Grégory Vignal suffered the rare indignity of coming on as a substitute, and then later himself being substituted. 1992 - David Burrows had to play the last six minutes of our European Cup Winners’ Cup game at the same club

    In comes Razor 1987 - Ray Houghton signed from Oxford United for £825,000. He went on to strike 38 times in 202 reds games, helping us to two League titles, two FA Cups and the FA Charity Shield in his five years at Anfield. He was sold to Aston Villa for £900,000 in July 1992, as Graeme Souness tried to reduce the number of non-Englishmen in the squad, to comply with UEFA regulations for European competition. In comes Hugh 1894 - Centre-forward Hugh Henderson signed from Third Lanark. He only made two appearances for the reds, both convincing defeats. A new competition 1960 -

    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

He left the club in the summer of 2009 to sign for Bayer 04 Leverkusen on a free transfer, subsequently moving into management.

    Goalscoring debutants 1946 - Forward Cyril Done scored on his official reds debut as we were held 1-1 by Charlton Athletic at home. He had also scored in the previous first-class reds game in which he had played - seven years before, just before the outbreak of war when the season was cancelled. Future reds boss Don Welsh netted for the visitors, having previously done so against us before the Second World War! 1907 - Harold Fitzpatrick scored on his reds debut to hand us a 1-0 home victory over Sunderland in another top-flight encounter as outside-right Arthur Goddard played his 200th red

    Another derby victory 2008 – A Fernando Torres brace after an hour of our trip to Goodison Park resulted in a 2-0 win, with a third goal harshly ruled out for an alleged foul by Dirk Kuyt.
