Torres Wins It For Liverpool

Friends Of Liverpool

Ah bliss! Torres came to the rescue today when I was beginning to feel we were heading for another dreaded draw.

Liverpool were the better team throughout having eighteen shots on goal in total, Chelsea had only two.

In the first half, chances were at a premium as Chelsea packed men behind the ball.

When that man Lampard got sent-off for yet another lunge on Xabi Alonso, it was the right decision.

It might have given Liverpool the numerical advantage but Chelsea defended everything the reds could throw at them.

With the clock ticking down, I feared the worst until El Nino headed in a Fabio Aurelio cross to send the kop into raptures.

The second goal by Torres made the game safe.

I thought Benyoun made a big impact when he came on as a sub, however I counted nine mistakes by Dirk Kuyt, he works hard but that just isn’t enough for me.

Now we are back on the heels of Man Utd, who lead us by two points and have a game in hand again, so we are well in touch with them.
