We went on to win 3-2, with Jérémie Aliadière sent off for the visitors for slapping Javier Mascherano. This meant we became the first team ever to score hat-tricks in all of the League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League in the same season. Tuncay Şanlı and future red Stewart Downing netted for the visitors. Daniel again 2014 - Daniel Sturridge scored in his seventh consecutive League game as we eventually beat Swansea City 4-3 at Anfield. He put us in front inside three minutes, with Jordan Henderson extending our lead before ex-red Jonjo Shelvey scored a spectacular goal and Martin Škrtel put through his own net to level the scores. Sturridge headed in his second before Wilfred Bony equalised from the spot. Henderson then grabbed the winner. Sami the centurion twice 2002 - Nicolas Anelka netted after Thomas Radzinski had opened the scoring in the Anfield derby, while Sami Hyypiä played in his hundredth League match for us. This was the first League derby in a quarter of century to feature two English goalies, as Chris Kirkland and Steve Simonsen played.

The visiting players were incensed, and as Terry McDermott ran up to take the spot-kick Frans Thijssen hurled a dollop of mud across his path. Town keeper Paul Cooper got down well to smother the shot and the Kop was outraged when the ref failed to order a retake.
