Struggling Everton were rock bottom of the league with just one win from 13 games when Liverpool arrived for what was Joe Royle’s first game as manager.

The legendary Blues striker came in to replace the sacked Mike Walker, who had endured a nightmarish spell in charge.

A second-half header from new terrace hero Duncan Ferguson – his first goal for the club – set the tone for the Royle revival.

Towards the end of the game an Andy Hinchcliffe set-piece was contested by Ferguson before falling to Paul Rideout, who poked the ball through David James’ legs for 2-0.

Everton would go on to not only survive but also win the FA Cup, stunning Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley thanks to Rideout’s first half header.

Re-live that night on Merseyside by watching highlights of the game in the video above.
