  • - Danny Murphy remembers he wanted to take Liverpool's penalty: "I tried to take that penalty, but Michael Owen took it instead. I had a chance to win it in the final few minutes after a great through ball from Steve Harkness, only I fluffed it. I don't think I scored again for two-and-a-half or three years!"
    - Neil Ruddock injured his knee badly and was out for two months.
