On this day, Liverpool beat West Ham 1-2 at Upton Park/Bolyn Park. This was in the season where Liverpool were on the verge of Premier League glory and captain Gerrard was on hand to score 2 penalties. This result bought Liverpool back to the Premier League but it was to no avail in the end.
Also on this day, in 1977, Liverpool beat Zurich 1-3 in the European Cup semi final away in Switzerland. 2 goals from Neal and a goal from Heighway sealed the win for the Reds after Zurich had taken the lead in 6 mins.
