Watch the heartwarming moment when blind football fan hears of Liverpool goal

Liverpool FC, who are one point clear at the top of the Premier League table, will now turn their attentions back to top flight affairs and the small matter of their home clash against Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

From a 2-1 win over Fulham in March 2004 through to October 2008, the Blues went a gargantuan 86 games without a defeat, which totalled an eye-popping 1,462 days, before Liverpool ended the sensational streak with a slender 1-0 win.

That fast pace kept up in a game that had greater tension placed upon it after news filtered through of an early PSG goal in Belgrade but with the greater sense of urgency on the hosts, they found it tough to carve out real clearcut opportunities until shortly after the half hour mark.

Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the game in the 34th minute at Anfield to send Liverpool into the round-of-16 of the Champions League, although they could have been down to 10 men before the goal was scored. That made the game intense.

Last season's Premier League Golden Glove victor has not looked himself since some uncharacteristic mistakes undermined Spain's World Cup campaign and they went out in the last 16.

You just can not keep a good league down, it seems, but it would be folly to declare that the age of innocence is over.

Many observers thought the reactions of the Loko players on the pitch summed up the team's performance on the pitch and, subsequently, their overall showing this season.

"Going out of the Champions League or continuing does not change anything, for me this year's big signing remains Ancelotti", the club president, also a film producer, said on Radio Kiss Kiss.

They have struggled defensively against the top sides - conceding at least two goals in each of the four games they have played this season. It's nice, but a little bit odd.

We'd really be tested in terms of facing a side perhaps as good at attacking this year as we were ourselves last year - but our defensive aptitude has increased tenfold, so that's no reason to feel fear.

So can Liverpool maintain their unbeaten start to the season and pick up their first win in nine meetings against their bitter rivals? "Up close at the Kop End I am OK, but further away the ball gets harder to see".
