On this day (7 April) 2007, Liverpool crept past Reading 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium – remarkably the first time the club had made the trip to the Berkshire based club.

Dutch workhorse Dirk Kuyt earned all three points with an 86th-minute header as the valiant Royals were outdone.

A first goal for the club from Spanish full-back Alvaro Arbeloa had given the Reds the lead at the 15-minute mark before Icelandic midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson levelled with a long-range effort past Pepe Reina. 

Kuyt replaced Craig Bellamy shortly after half-half time for Rafa Benítez’s side, the pre-cursor to nodding the visitors five points clear of Arsenal in 3rd.  

The Liverpool side on this day contained such memorable names as Momo Sissoko, Mark Gonzalez and Steve Finnan. 

At the end of the campaign, the Reds finished third level on 68 points with the Gunners, both someway behind Chelsea in second and title-winners Manchester United.
