Key note: “This was not a game, or a day, Liverpool will care to remember. With their manager, Gerard Houllier, receiving hospital treatment for the chest pains he suffered during the interval, the Merseysiders played well enough in the second half to salvage a point, but not well enough to disguise the fact that Leeds looked much the likelier to challenge for the Premiership title this season. Phil Thompson, Liverpool’s assistant manager, praised the team for staging a revival spirited enough to produce an equaliser by Danny Murphy that stemmed directly from Robbie Fowler’s one flash of inspiration. But Leeds were in control for most of the time and could quite easily have added a second goal to the one scored midway through the first half by Harry Kewell.” (The Telegraph: October 14, 2001)
