  • - Larry Lloyd and Manchester City's Wyn Davies were sent off for fighting in the first half. Shankly wasn't happy with the sending-off as it was clearly Davies who was the culprit by simply headbutting Lloyd. Liverpool became the first team to fight a three-match ban over a player before the newly-formed independent disciplinary tribunal and won!
