On this day in 2006 Liverpool played out a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Following their dramatic FA Cup antics at Luton Town, Liverpool hosted Spurs in a Premier League clash at Anfield. Interestingly the Premier League matchup between the two top 4 sides saw Anfield’s largest attendance since the stadium became an all-seater stadium in 1988 with an official attendance number of 44,983.
The game itself between the two sides was an even affair, with both sides fighting to maintain their place in the Champions League spots. In the end, one goal was enough to separate the two sides and it came just before the hour mark from Australian winger Harry Kewell. Scoring his first Liverpool goal since December 2004, Kewell showed great composure to volley the ball past Paul Robinson at his near post and into the net from close range, giving Liverpool the lead and eventually a 1-0 victory over the North London outfit.
Also on this day in 1978, Graeme Souness made his Liverpool debut in a 1-0 win over West Brom. The Scotsman was fielded as a part of the starting 11 by Bob Paisley against the Baggies who found themselves in 6th place going into the matchup at The Hawthorns. The Reds found themselves 1-0 up after just 10 minutes thanks to David Johnson and with no further goals to be spoken of Liverpool came away from West Brom with a victory and 2 points.
