On November 28th, 2004, the striker hit a superb 30-yard volley in stoppage time to secure a 2-1 win for the Reds over Arsenal, who were the defending Premier League champions at the time. [via BBC]

He would play just 22 times for Liverpool’s first team and was forced to retire in 2012 at the age of just 29 after suffering a serious knee injury, as per BBC.

Mellor, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, met with current Reds goalkeeper Alisson earlier this week to record an interview for Gillette Soccer Saturday.

He posted on his Twitter profile @NeilMellor33 about having to Google himself to prove to the 27-year-old Brazilian, who came to Anfield in 2018, that he had previously played with the Anfield club.

Like Alisson, Mellor was also involved in a Champions League-winning squad, having played in two matches in the Reds’ European triumph in 2004/05.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter jokingly called out Alisson upon seeing the footage of Mellor’s goal against Arsenal back in 2004:
