One of the greatest European nights at Anfield.
One of the greatest European nights at Anfield.

Back in 2008, English clubs consistently ruled Europe. Manchester United and Chelsea had reached the Champions League semi-finals, with Liverpool and Arsenal fighting for a place alongside them.

The first leg at the Emirates finished 1-1, leaving the tie as open as ever. Goals from Abou Diaby and Sami Hyypia made it 1-1 on the night at half-time. But the second half was one of the greatest in Anfield's illustrious history.

Fernando Torres produced a world-class effort to give Liverpool the lead, sending the Anfield crowd into a roar. However, Emmanuel Adebayor made it 2-2 with around five minutes to go. As things stood, the Gunners were going through on away goals.

But then, we saw the real magic of a European night at Anfield. Steven Gerrard perfectly slotted home a penalty to make it 3-2, before Ryan Babel scored on the counter to end the tie once and for all. It was truly a special night.
