Liverpool – Wigan 2:1

Fernando Torres of Liverpool is congratulated by team mate Steven Gerrard (R) after scoring his team's second goal during the Barclays Premier League match between Liverpool and Wigan Athletic at Anfield on December 16, 2009 in Liverpool, England.

Liverpool recorded only their third win in 10 league games as celebrations of 50 years since Bill Shankly became manager were marked by narrowly defeating Wigan 2-1 at Anfield.

David Ngog and Fernando Torres scored the goals for the Reds, the former after only nine minutes.

But instead of instilling confidence it was Wigan who looked dangerous against a nervy Liverpool side.

Substitute Torres proved the Kop’s hero again with a late second and Charles N’Zogbia netted in injury time to give the Latics a goal they deserved.
