The first victory was against West Ham United
Spanish goalkeeper Jose Reina was badly at fault for West Ham’s goal, misjudging Bobby Zamora’s cross and compounding his error by pushing the ball into the net.
Despite that, Liverpool recovered to go in at the break 2-1 ahead, equalising through defender Daniel Agger’s incredible shot.
Midfielder Steven Gerrard and Luis Garcia then combined to set up a goal for Crouch, while late on Lee Bowyer should have equalised only to hit the post.
The encounter marked the first time the two clubs had met since Liverpool’s thrilling FA Cup win as well as being the day the Kop celebrated its 100th birthday.
In fact, Reina endured a shaky match in May’s final before redeeming himself in the penalty shoot-out and Liverpool’s Spanish goalkeeper badly miscalulated as Zamora prepared to cross.
We can say that Liverpool showed a great football, and the adventurous approach was rewarded.
It remains to be seen if we've seen the first glimpse of the stylish, attacking football which will bring the Premier League title back to Anfield Road.
