Liverpool 1-0 Man City

It's been a while since Liverpool were left with nothing to play for by May, but today - with a 4th place finish guaranteed (either way) - this game was somewhat over-shadowed by the battle for Championship promotion and relegation. With that in mind, I'm disappointed that Insua was the only one of our successful reserve side given a game, but maybe Rafa was keeping the reserve league play-off final (later this week) in focus.

Anyway, the strong team gave Torres the chance to equal Ruud van Nistelrooy's record for a foreign player's debut season of 23 league goals. He also extended a club record, by scoring in his eighth successive home league match - in fact, I believe 21 of the 23 have come at Anfield: imagine what he'll be like if he starts scoring away next season!
