The floodlight failure at the start of the game couldn't stop Liverpool from producing a superb performance with Anelka the 'Man of the Match.' Murphy scored two and Hamann added a third.
Dietmar Hamann seals the points for Liverpool against his old club with a cool side-footed finish from 25-yards out, placing the ball perfectly beyond the outstretched dive of Given and into the bottom corner of the net.
Danny Murphy gives Liverpool the lead with a goal that owes much to the skill and pace of Anelka. The Frenchman picks up the ball inside his own half before racing down the right and crossing for the in-rushing Murphy to fire home.
