Having read various Chelsea forums last week, you’d think that the match on Sunday between Chelsea and Liverpool was a foregone conclusion, it was a matter of how many goals Fernandodo Torres would score, and how many goals Chelsea were going to win by! 3-0, 4-1, 5-0….
So looking back on a really well organised, well fought 0-1 away win at Chelsea it’s very plain to see that Liverpool can still compete at the very highest level, my only concern is the way Liverpool pass the ball around at the back, it’s all a bit too dangerous for my liking, and they will get caught out from time to time if it continues.
As it stands Liverpool are just six points behind Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool having played a game more! with 36 points still to play for, wouldn’t it be very very pleasing to see Liverpool pip Chelsea to fourth place! If, and it is still a fairly big if, Liverpool were to finish fourth and Chelsea fifth, or even sixth, I wonder if Mr. Torres would hand in a transfer request to further his career with a BIG club, and not some piddly little west London club.
I’d like to thank Roy Hodgson for buying Raul Meireles last August, and Kenny Dalglish for getting Raul playing like a legend.
