Omg so excited/nervous

As the Reds prepare to host Mark Hughes and co on Sunday, Liverpoolfc.tv looks back on City's last five visits to Anfield.

Liverpool 1-0 Man City
Premier League – May 2008

Fernando Torres plunged his 32nd goal of a remarkable debut season to wrap up the points against a City side which, months later, would become the richest outfit in world football. No amount of money could ever prize El Nino away from Anfield, however - a venue where he'd now scored in eight consecutive games. The result itself was academic, with Liverpool already secure in fourth and Sven's men stuck in mid-table.

Premiership – November 2006

Steven Gerrard grabbed his first league goal of the season as Liverpool climbed to eighth in the Premiership. The skipper hit a venomous strike right in front of his adoring Kop to break the deadlock after 67 tedious minutes. Pepe Reina was forced into a brace of top-drawer saves in the closing minutes but Rafa's Redmen managed to hold out.

The Reds completed a season's double over their north-west rivals thanks to a well-struck goal from a resurgent Harry Kewell. The Aussie slotted past an outstretched David James after Stevie G found him darting down the left. The visitors had Joey Barton dismissed in the second half when a late challenge on big Sami earned a second yellow.

Michael Owen was gone, but the man charged with filling his boots wasted no time proving he might just be up to the job. Milan Baros, fresh from winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2004, opened his season's account three minutes after the break with a cool lob over James to cancel out Nicolas Anelka's first-half strike. The Czech had been fed by Gerrard, himself the subject of transfer rumours throughout summer. But, inspired by a rapturous reception from the Anfield crowd, the skipper proved home is where the heart is with a 75th minute winner.

After waiting three months for a goal, it took little Michael just three minutes to open the scoring with an exquisite finish past his former teammate. James wasn't the only old boy in town, with Kevin Keegan able to call on Steve McManaman and Robbie Fowler. The ex-Kop favourites were conspicuous by their absence in the first-half, but showed flashes of their former selves to set up Shaun Wright-Phillips for an equaliser early in the second. Not that Anfield had much time to ponder sod's law. It took just two minutes for current Kop idol Stevie G to crash home the winner following a goalmouth scramble. Amen to that.

These guys are excited too..

Romeo Beckham looked a chip off the old block as he kicked around a football in Los Angeles yesterday.

The six-year-old appears to have inherited his famous father's fancy footwork, which he put on show at the Coldwater Canyon Park in Beverly Hills. However, his younger brother Cruz, who turns four today, is still a little hazy on the rules of the game. (full article)
