As kick-off closes in before the 178th meeting between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, here’s a look back at the biggest victory we have ever had over the North London outfit.
Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa were playing at Anfield for the first time and the Argentine stars were arriving with a lot of expectation of a positive result against Bob Pasiley’s men.
It was a brilliant team performance by the Reds though as they managed to put seven past Spurs, with no reply from former Liverpool player Keith Burkinshaw’s side.
The goals were scored by Kenny Dalglish (2), David Johnson (2), Phil Neal from the spot, the late great Ray Kennedy and the pick of the bunch from Terry McDermott.
It was goal described by the legendary manager as “the best goal Anfield has ever seen” and the final goal of the day has lasted long in the memory.
The goal started with Dalglish in the centre of the pitch, he passed to Johnson who sprayed a cross-field pass to Steve Heighway and his cross found McDermott who headed the ball into the top corner.
A brilliant team goal from one of the best teams we’ve ever had grace our prestigious club.
