On this day in 2012 former Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling made his Liverpool debut.

Kenny Dalglish gave the 17-year-old his first appearance in a red shirt coming on as a late substitute in a 2-1 loss against Wigan. 

The Latics opened the scoring on the half hour mark as Shaun Maloney converted from the penalty spot. Uruguayan superstar Luis Suarez equalised for the Reds in the second half but it wasn’t enough to help scrape a result as a strike from Gary Caldwell helped Wigan to all three points. A day to forget at Anfield, despite the crowds first glimpse at Sterling in the senior squad.
