Liverpool 2-2 Swansea City
Football League Division One
Date: 3 October, 1981
Swansea City almost caused a First Division upset at Liverpool just five months after Bob Paisley's side won the European Cup.
The Welsh club took a two-goal lead at Anfield before two Terry McDermott penalties rescued Liverpool on an emotive day.
Both sides wore black armbands in memory of iconic Liverpool manager Bill Shankly , also the managerial mentor of Swansea boss and former Liverpool striker John Toshack, as the game took place a day after Shankly's funeral.
Wales international Leighton James fired Swansea into an early lead from the penalty spot in front of the Kop before former Everton striker Bob Latchford doubled the advantage in the second-half.
But two late penalties from midfielder McDermott saved the Merseysiders, who went on to win the league and the League Cup.
