Liverpool survive Luton

When Liverpool went ahead early against Luton it was looking like the underdog had little chance of surviving, but in a chaotic classic, Luton turned the match on its head only to have Liverpool return the favor. It ended 5-3 and was great watching for the entire 90 minutes.

It was truly a fantastic football match which deserved to be the final. Steven Gerrard opened the scoring for Liverpool by bending a sweet strike into the corner of the net after 16 minutes. Luton continued as they started, unfettered by the stature of the team they were facing to equalize on 31 minutes.

Steve Howard scored a wonderful goal, sent thru he rounded the keeper to equalize. 10 minutes after than Luton gained the advantage as Steve Robinson and his brilliant first touch totally beat Jamie Carragher and put the ball past Liverpool’s 2nd choice keeper Scott Carson from a sharp angle. The goal’s subtlety and the player’s technique were excellent, making a difficult goal look easy.

There was more drama after Djibril Cisse had a penalty saved, and it was not until substitute Sinama Pongolle entered the game that Liverpool’s fortunes changed. He made an instant impact to score.

Xavi Alonso caught Luton keeper Marlon Beresford off his line with a beautiful floating ball from within Liverpool’s own half and then Liverpool took the lead for good when Sinama Pongolle headed Steven Gerrard's cross into the net.

Liverpool’s fifth goal came after Luton sent all 11 men forward in search of an equalizer, in the 90th minute scramble for the ball Alonso got his second of the game from well within his own half as he send the ball long into an empty goal.

The city of Liverpool is home to two professional football clubs, Everton and Liverpool. Liverpool is the only English city to have staged top division football every single season since the formation of the Football League in 1888, and both of the city's clubs play in high-capacity stadiums. Liverpool have played at Anfield since 1892, when the club was formed to occupy the stadium following Everton's departure following a dispute with their landlord. Liverpool are still playing there 115 years later, sportsbook, although the ground has been completely rebuilt since the 1970s and only the Main Stand survives from before 1992. The Spion Kop (rebuilt as an all-seater stand in 1994/1995) was the most famous part of the ground, gaining cult status across the world due to the songs and celebrations of the many fans who packed onto its terraces. Anfield can now hold more than 45,000 spectators in comfort, and is a distinctive landmark in an area filled with smaller and older buildings. http://www.enterbet.com
