Houllier described it as a bad day at the office. Having gone one down to a Dublin header, Liverpool bounce back with a goal from Gerrard before conceding 2 more goals to slump to their first home defeat of the season.

Gerrard (46)

A corner kick by Gary McAllister sees Steven Gerrard head towards goal. There is a delay as to whether or not the ball had actually crossed the line but to the delight of the home crowd referee Andy D'Urso signalled for a goal.

Hendrie (54)

Confusion in the penalty box sees Dublin get beyond the last defender. He looks to have fluffed the opportunity but Hendrie is on hand to drill the ball left-footed into the far corner of Dudek's net and Villa?s lead is restored.
