FA Cup Semi-final

Villa Park | Sat 27 Mar 1965 at 15:00

Liverpool 2 - 0 Chelsea

Notes

  • - Average age of the Liverpool starting lineup: 24.76
  • - Average age of the Chelsea starting lineup: 23.24
  • - Gordon Milne was the designated penalty taker on the day but didn't fancy the challenge of taking Liverpool's penalty: "It was one of those days when the ball is like a balloon and the goal shrinks. It was one of those pictures I had in my mind. Willie was next to me and I said: 'Willie, I don't fancy this.' 'No problem.'

    Willie Stevenson surprised everybody by stepping up, but his seemingly confident penalty was everything but: "I thought I was having quite a good game so I said: 'I'll take it.' The best thing about that was I meant to put it in the bottom right-hand corner, my right facing it, but my foot just slipped as I came to the ball and instead of going on the ground it went about six feet up straight back into the net. They are all great goals."

    From Liverpoolfc.com's documentary "Ee-aye-addio - 1965 and all that."
