On this day in 2006 Jamie Carragher scored his fourth and final goal for Liverpool as the Reds overcame visitors Fulham 4-0.

The match got off to a particularly unspectacular start as the first half ended goalless between the two sides, the highlight of the first 45 minutes being Pepe Reina spectacularly denying Brian McBride with an emphatic save to send the ball out for a corner. However, the second half saw the game finally splutter into motion as a penalty was given to the home side due to Fulham man Ian Pearce handling a Dirk Kuyt shot.

Steven Gerrard shouldered the responsibility as is to be expected of the captain and although his spot kick was saved by the Fulham keeper, the skipper hit home the rebound giving his side the lead. Further goals added by Luis Garcia and Mark Gonzalez would see all three points secured in Liverpool’s favour, however it was the Red’s second goal, scored by Jamie Carragher that was the most noteworthy of the bunch. A Gerrard corner was flicked on by Danish defender Daniel Agger, finding Carragher unmarked at the back post as the scouser stabbed the ball home to score what was his first league in nearly 8 years and what would incidentally be his last goal for Liverpool.
