Fernando Torres' winning goal in Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on Tuesday evening was El Nino's 50th league strike for the Reds and set a new club record.
The Spain ace became the fastest player in the history of the Reds to reach a half-century in the league, having incredibly done so in just 72 games.
In tribute to our Spanish estrella, Liverpoolfc.tv have compiled each and every one of his 50 - so sit back and take a few moments to remember some classic moments from Anfield's No.9.
Goal 1 - Chelsea 19 August 2007
Torres announced his arrival in English football in spectacular style with a goal on his Anfield debut.
Latching on to a piercing Steven Gerrard through ball, the Reds' new signing glided past Chelsea defender Tal Ben-Haim before dispatching a low shot beyond Petr Cech into the bottom corner.
Goal 2 - Derby County 1 September 2007
The Spaniard claimed his second and third goals for Liverpool as the Reds hammered Derby 6-0 at Anfield to go top of the Premier League table.
Javier Mascherano's challenge 25-yards from the Derby goal pushed the ball into Torres' possession. He left the opposition defenders for dead and slotted the ball into the bottom corner via his left boot in the 56th minute.
Goal 3 - Derby County 1 September 2007
Torres put the seal on a comprehensive victory for the Reds as he netted Liverpool's sixth and final goal of the afternoon.
Derby defender Andy Todd failed to deal with Andriy Voronin's lobbed ball forward, allowing Torres to go through on goal, effortlessly round goalkeeper Stephen Bywater and slide the ball into an empty net.
Goal 4 - Tottenham Hotspur 7 October 2007
Spurs had twice taken the lead at Anfield courtesy of a Robbie Keane double and it looked as though the three points were heading to White Hart Lane until Torres headed home Steve Finnan's deep cross to salvage a point for Liverpool in stoppage-time.
Goal 5 - Fulham 10 November 2007
Torres came off the bench to score a brilliant individual goal to break Fulham's resistance and put Liverpool on their way to three points.
The Spaniard chested down Pepe Reina's long goal-kick before turning and running at the Fulham defence.
El Nino left Aaron Hughes floundering before calmly beating Antti Niemi with a clever reverse shot into the bottom corner from 10 yards.
Goal 6 - Bolton Wanderers 2 December 2007
El Nino scored on the stroke of half-time to send Liverpool into the interval two goals to the good.
Steven Gerrard was once again the provider as his long-pass sliced open the Bolton defence, sending Torres through on goal and the Spaniard deftly lifted the ball over the advancing Jussi Jaaskelainen with a finish not too dissimilar to Kenny Dalglish's winner in the 1978 European Cup Final against Bruges.
Goal 7 - Portsmouth 22 December 2007
Torres helped himself to another brace as Liverpool made the perfect start to the festive period with a 4-1 romp against Portsmouth.

Jamie Carragher's lofted ball into the area was headed back to Torres by Steven Gerrard and the striker clinically dispatched a left-footed volley into the bottom corner.
Goal 9 - Derby County 26 December 2007
Another game and another superb goal from Liverpool's talismanic centre forward.
Torres put the Reds ahead after 11 minutes with a festive cracker. Ryan Babel laid the ball off and the Spaniard burst into the box, nutmegging Darren Moore en route, before curling a shot into the far corner via his left boot.
Goal 10 - Wigan Athletic 2 January 2008
On a bitterly cold January evening at Anfield, Torres fired Liverpool into an early second-half lead with his 10th Premier League goal.
A well worked move resulted in Steven Gerrard releasing Steve Finnan into the right hand channel and his low cross was turned past Chris Kirkland by El Nino from 10 yards.
Goal 11 - Middlesbrough 12 January 2008
With Liverpool trailing, Torres collected possession 25 yards from goal and ran at the Boro defence before drilling an unstoppable strike in off the post to earn the Reds a point.
Goal 12 - Sunderland 2 February 2008
El Nino netted Liverpool's second goal with a trademark finish as the Reds cruised to a 3-0 victory over Sunderland.
Torres was put through on goal by Peter Crouch's flick-on and the end result was never in doubt as he slammed the ball past Craig Gordon.
Goal 13 - Middlesbrough 23 February 2008
Torres became the first Liverpool player to score 20 goals or more in a season since Michael Owen in 2002-03 with a treble against Middlesbrough.
His first was something of a gift as Julio Arca's header towards his own goal on 28 minutes only succeeded in finding the lurking Torres.

Goal 19 - Newcastle United 8 March 2008

Goal 23 - Manchester City 4 May 2008

Goal 39 - Stoke City 19 August 2009
Torres fired Liverpool into an early lead against a Stoke City side who had held the Reds to two frustrating goalless stalemates the season before.

Goal 42 - West Ham United 19 September 2009

Goal 45 - Hull City 26 September 2009
Fernando continued his striking master class against Phil Brown's side with perhaps his best goal of the afternoon.

Goal 46 - Hull City 26 September 2009
Torres wrapped up his Tigers treble early in the second-half of this 6-1 triumph. Yossi was again the provider, slipping a ball in behind the Hull rearguard for the striker to run on to.

Goal 47 - Manchester United 25 October 2009
Rafa Benitez said afterwards our No.9 was only '80 per cent fit' for this tussle with United - but Torres was still too much for Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic to handle.

Goal 49 - Wigan Athletic 16 December 2009
On as a substitute, Torres latched on to Gerrard's flick and burst beyond the Wigan defence. He rounded Kirkland, but saw his initial shot blocked on the line by Bramble.

Goal 50 - Aston Villa 29 December 2009
And that's the record! Torres secures an important 1-0 win for Liverpool at Villa Park with an injury-time winner, latching onto a loose ball into the box and steering calmly beyond Brad Friedel to send the travelling Kop into ecstasy.
