Rafa’s relief as Reds see off Latics

Date published: Wednesday 16th December 2009 10:30

Ngog’s 10th-minute glancing header from Fabio Aurelio’s cross and Torres’ second-half scrambled effort proved enough to see off a Latics side, for whom Charles N’Zogbia scored an injury-time consolation.

It was only Liverpool’s fourth win in 16 matches and just their second at Anfield since September 26 – but it did little to mark the 50th anniversary of Shankly’s first match at the club.

Although Ngog impressed in the first half the crowd eagerly awaited the arrival of substitute Torres for his 100th appearance, which eventually came in the 64th minute.

The striker duly delivered with his 61st goal for Liverpool to wrap up the victory and lift some pressure from the under-fire Benitez.
