Liverpool 1-0 Portsmouth

Nov 1, 2008

Steven Gerrard’s 76th-minute penalty kept Liverpool clear at the top of the table with victory over Portsmouth.

Gerrard scored after Papa Bouba Diop undid his side’s resolute performance by handling a corner in Pompey boss Tony Adams’s first game in charge.

Until then, Dirk Kuyt’s shot against the post was the closest Liverpool had come to a goal.

Yossi Benayoun was also denied for the home side after a last-ditch Sylvain Distin tackle before Gerrard’s winner.
