PREMIER LEAGUE: Blackpool show Dalglish scale of Liverpool task
Blackpool came from behind to defeat Liverpool 2-1 at Bloomfield Road for their first double over the Reds since 1947 and ruin Kenny Dalglish's first game in charge. Against a side with the worst home record in the Premier League Liverpool had the perfect start taking an early lead through Fernando Torres.
But the visitor's have only won once away this campaign and three out of their last four games on the road had ended in defeat so it was no shock when the Seasiders quickly levelled.
Torres had a couple of good chances as the game progressed but the Tangerines are a resilient team and began to look dangerous on the break.
Their winner duly arrived as again Liverpool failed to defend correctly and this time DJ Campbell took full advantage to head home.
