Liverpool's much-publicised issues off the pitch have been eclipsed by their problems on it as they slumped to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at home to Barclays Premier League newcomers Blackpool.

Thousands of fans staged a pre-match protest march against the continuing ownership of Tom Hicks and George Gillett but there was a real danger of revolt inside Anfield at the final whistle.

Charlie Adam's penalty and Luke Varney's perfectly-timed run and finish did the damage in the first half and although Sotirios Kyrgiakos' header pulled one back Liverpool will spend the next fortnight rooted in the bottom three because of the forthcoming international break.
