Liverpool 3-2 Wigan

Oct 19, 2008

Dirk Kuyt’s scissor-kick five minutes from time gave Liverpool all three points against 10-man Wigan in a pulsating game at Anfield.

Amr Zaki gave the visitors the lead after a mistake from Daniel Agger, but Kuyt fired Liverpool level.

On the stroke of half-time Zaki scored a spectacular overhead-kick to restore Wigan’s lead, before Antonio Valencia was sent off for two bookable offences.

The home side hit back through Albert Riera, before Kuyt’s late winner.

The result is harsh on a Wigan side who, until Valencia’s sending off, looked good value for at least a point.
