On this day (6 April) 2014, Liverpool edged past West Ham United 2-1 at Upton Park owing to two penalties from Steven Gerrard on what was a landmark day for future captain Jordan Henderson. 

Henderson, who has since led the Reds to a Champions League and Premier League success made his 100th appearance for the club as Brendan Rodgers’ side went back to the top of the table. 

After Gerrard fired his side into the lead, Hammers defender Guy Demel had levelled the match on the stroke of half time. 

But, not to be denied Gerrard clinched all three points from the spot once again as Rodgers’ men continued their pursuit of the title.

The visiting Liverpool side consisted of Jon Flanagan, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson – along with a now ashamed trio, who left the club under varying degrees of clouds. 

Ultimately the campaign proved to be in vain as Liverpool fell short on the run after a capitulation at Selhurst Park and an infamous slip at Anfield – leaving the Reds just short in second place, two points adrift of eventual winners Manchester City.
