There was only one winner yesterday at Stamford Bridge and it wan’t Fernando Torres or Chelsea. It was Liverpool who emerged victorious and triumphant in a tough and tense game by 1-0 with Raul Meireles getting the 2nd half winner. Fernando Torres made his debut against his former team, six days after his £50 million to Chelsea.
Torres had one of his quieter days again, due to the tremendous defensive display by Kenny Dalglish’s team, indeed, he was substituted on 65mins by Ancelotti, to round off a poor debut by the Spaniard. Liverpool wanted this one and it showed with their marking, tackling and determined attitude all throughout the game.
When the final whistle went, a huge cheer bellowed from the Liverpool supporters behind Petr Cech’s goal. To beat Chelsea at the Bridge is a great achievement, but to do so when your former star striker has just joined them, makes it all the sweeter. I wish Torres well now and I am sure he will score many goals for his new club. Thank God we didnt let him score today! We are now up to sixth in the table, 6 points away from the Champions League positions.
It a remarkable improvement in Liverpool’s fortune since Kenny Dalglish took over and everyone now agrees that he should be given the job full time.
