  • Liverpool scored two own goals as described by the Daily Post: "Molyneux put through his own goal at the 58th minute. He had to attempt to clear for Dare was along with him and in his anxiety he put the ball beyond Underwood. Twentyman’s goal was different. He put the ball back to his goalkeeper and all would have been well had not Underwood lost his footing as the ball passed into the net."
