1 What a match! Thrilling, pulsating action and a couple of great goals. An old fashioned English cup tie, Champions League style.
2 Rafa Benitez is Mr Champions League. For all his frustrating rotating in the Premier League, you can’t help but think that he knows that most of his players will be relatively fresh when it comes to the business end of the Champions League.
3 Fernando Torres is just superb. His excellent finish to give Liverpool the lead – his 29th goal of the season – was decisive.
4 Emmanuel Adebayor’s new hairdo hoodoo strikes again. The Togolese striker missed a sitter when Arsenal were 2-1 down.
