Liverpool came from two goals down to beat Fulham 4-2 and secure manager Rafael Benitez's first Barclays Premier League away win in dramatic fashion.
Chris Coleman’s Fulham side got off to a flying start and capitalised with two quickfire goals from Portuguese midfielder Luis Boa Morte before the half hour mark, with American striker Brian McBride providing the assists on both occasions.
An own goal from Fulham defender Zat Knight gave the visitors hope just after the half-time interval, and Milan Baros levelled proceedings from close range with 20 minutes left.
Liverpool completed a remarkable turnaround in the closing stages of the match as Xabi Alonso curled in a free-kick and Igor Biscan struck in stoppage time to make it 4-2.
The result moved Liverpool up to seventh in the Premier League and the Reds challenged for the European qualification places for the rest of the campaign, ultimately finishing fifth in the table.
But their finest moment during the 2004/05 season came in the UEFA Champions League, as they made it all the way to the final of the competition and recovered from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan on penalties in a thrilling season finale. It was the fifth time the Merseyside club had won Europe’s elite club competition.
