Liverpool - Blackpool continued their amazing start to life in the Premier League with a 2-1 win away to Liverpool at Anfield here on Sunday that left the 18-times champions in the relegation zone.

It was Blackpool's first win at their north-west rivals' once feared home ground since 1967 and left Liverpool with just a solitary win from seven league games so far this term.

Charlie Adam fired newly-promoted Blackpool into a 29th-minute lead from the penalty spot before Luke Varney doubled the Tangerines' tally on the stroke of half-time.
