Goodison revisited

Kenny Dalglish returns to Goodison Park with Liverpool today for the first time since the Reds' 4-4 draw with Everton in an FA Cup fifth-round replay 20 years ago.

Liverpool led on four separate occasions that evening, but were pegged back each time, including late Tony Cottee (above) equalisers in the final minutes of both normal and extra-time. Dalglish's shock resignation two days later left Liverpool rudderless for the second replay, which Everton won 1-0.
