Wigan Athletic have halted Liverpoolâ€™s winning streak of three by holding them to a 1-1 draw at DW Stadium.
Things looked good for the Reds when Fernando Torres, who scored both goals in Sundayâ€™s win over Chelsea, received a long, pinpoint pass from Steven Gerrard before firing across the path of Latics keeper Ali Al-Habsi to make it 1-0 in the seventh minute.
Fortunately for Wigan, Hugo Rodallega was on hand to lash home after Pepe Reina could only parry Ronnie Stamâ€™s shot into his path.
The Colombian accepted gratefully to make it 1-1 but it extended Wiganâ€™s winless run to five matches, keeping them in the drop zone whilst Liverpool remained 9th.
