  • - Kirkland was excited to make his debut at Anfield, but not too thrilled with the result: "That night at Anfield I was playing behind Jamie Carragher and Sami Hyypia and their experience at the top level helped me through the match. Everyone here is so experienced that it doesn't matter who is in defence, they're all that good. It was a good night for me, playing for the club I grew up supporting, despite the disappointment of the result. I can only hope I have many more nights like that in my Liverpool career."
    - Gregory Vignal broke his ankle.
