**All newspapers have Hugh McQueen on the outside left position, but he is not mentioned in the match report at all. Instead Cameron, which no paper have listed in the line-up is mentioned. I suspect the papers have gone with the preview line-up, and forgot to change names. I have gone with John Cameron on outside left because of the match report. Why would they mention his name if he wasn’t playing?

Match reports:
* Liverpool Mercury: “Slippery nature at Anfield”;
* Athletic News: “Liverpool coming back to form”;
