This day saw “El Nino” Fernando Torres score a hattrick to sink West Ham United in a game that ended 4-0 to the Reds. Gerrard added a goal a few minutes after Torres had completed his hattrick to add salt to the already open wounds of the London based team. A smart finish from Torres from Kuyt’s cross, a header that rebounded off the post and a low drive gave Torres his hattrick before Gerrard added his name to score sheet with a trademark long ranged effort.
A throwback result that occurred over a century ago. The Wednesday’s hosted Liverpool in 1910 and they came away as victors as well having scored 3 goals to Liverpool’s 0. Liverpool played in front of 12,000 fans at the Owlerton Stadium.
