  • - Several key players were missing as Liverpool Echo reported: "The Anfielders were without the services of Raisbeck, Dunlop, Cox and Hewitt, the two forwards being indisposed and the two latter suffering from injuries. Under the circumstances Lipsham and Parkinson were drafted into the front line and Gorman was again given the centre half position."

    - The match started without Liverpool left-back Tom Chorlton on the field. He had missed his train at Crewe but with Liverpool confident that he would still arrive the match started without him. Referee Mister J. Mason from Burslem was also affected by rail problems and this delayed the start of the match by about fifyeen minutes, with an embarrassed Chorlton joining his team-mates soon after the rescheduled start.
