Liverpool v Notts County 3-0 (League match: February 28, 1920)

February 28, 1920
Key note: “Liverpool played well enough to beat most teams on Saturday. Notts County looked small fry against the Livers, whose attack was at its best. Forshaw carries many guns, and it would surprise most people locally to learn of his running prowess. You have to look deep into his work to see how he gets there first without showing how much he has in hand. As a fact, Liverpool win the same manner that Forshaw deceived, they had a lot in hand and kept it tucked up the sleeve! Chambers, with his weight and telling passes and shots, was also a helpful link, and the pity of it all was that Sheldon should be crocked – it is to be hoped that he will be right for Saturday’s Cup-tie.” (Liverpool Echo: March 1, 1920)
