Fernando Torres's early goal overshadowed the fact that Wigan was largely the better side in the first half. Of course, that's a typical tale for the Latics, commonly more style than substance.Today, however, Wigan has managed to have both, finally breaking through in the 51st minute.
It was a just outcome for the Latics, who had a goal called back toward the end of the first half. Why that offside call on Rodallega was ultimately correct, it failed to cancel-out the fact Liverpool was the lesser side for the first half's last 30 minutes.
With Rodallega's goal, the scoresheet now reflects the match.
