On this day in 2003 Liverpool routed West Bromwich Albion 6-0 as Michael Owen joined the Premier League 100 club.
As Liverpool’s Premier League season came to a close their penultimate away game of the 2002/03 campaign at the Hawthorns was a memorable one. Coming up against the already relegated West Brom, Liverpool closed the gap on fourth placed Chelsea in style.
After a relatively tame first half with Michael Owen scoring the only goal of the first 45 minutes, the floodgates opened in the second half. Czech striker Milan Baros made it 2-0 just two minutes into the second half before an 18 minute flurry saw Owen net three more goals against the Baggies his third goal on the day seeing the English striker join an exclusive club of player who had scored 100 or more Premier League goals. Liverpool weren’t through with West Brom yet however, as Milan Baros added his second of the day before half time to see Gerard Houllier’s Reds run out 6-0 winners against the Championship-bound side.
