After Yesterday’s Fantastic Day Of Football, Chelsea v Liverpool Is Rather An Anti-climatic Affair. Chelsea played with the Diamond midfield as expected to accommodate new signing Fernando Torres, with Drogba partnering him and Anelka at the tip of the Diamond. Torres didn’t have the best debut but also the Liverpool defenders were going to make sure he didn’t score, with Carragher and co getting in the tackles and blocks in. Fo Chelsea Essien was really in the game, nor was Lampard or Mikel with the Chelsea midfield seeming rather stagnant. When Malouda and Kalou, with Fernando Torres making way on the 66th minute, did come on Chelsea looked much more of a threat. But by the time they got to really get in the game Liverpool had already take advantage of Chelsea’s poor performance with Raul Meireles getting the goal on the 69th minute. He may have taken his time to score his first goal for liverpool but since he did he seems unable to stop with 4 goals in his last 5 games. Liverpool could have been 1-0 up earlier if Maxi Rodriguez would have been able to score rather than hit the cross-bar earlier on in the match. When Fabio Aurelio came on for Maxi Rodríguez Liverpool looked more dangerous at by the end of the game it was Liverpool who looked like they were going to score not Chelsea. Chelsea fans by this point had already started to leave, and in all honestly all they missed was the final whistle.
FC København Should Carlo Ancelotti be worried about his job, one thing is for sure, and if they don’t beat in the Champions League, he could well be following Roberto Di Matteo in looking for a new job and should also feel rather harshly treated. But that is the way of modern day football. If you don’t win enough matches, you wont be in a job for long. With names already being rumoured for the Chelsea job, With Rafa Benitez mentioned, could a Rafa Fernando partnership be in the works?
