Liverpool went out of the Champions League tonight in dramatic fashion.
Needing to overhaul a 3-1 defeat at Anfield they got off to the perfect start with a great free kick by Aurelio.
They then got a penalty when Alonso was fouled in the box, he coolly smashed the ball home to make it 2-0 at half-time and the dream looked on.
However, Chelsea came roaring back in the second half and a mistake by the normally safe keeper Reina let them back into it and they got a second and then a third to seemingly kill off the tie.
However, Liverpool weren’t finished and a deflected Lucas goal followed by a Dirk Kuyt header put us 4-3 ahead on the night, unbelievable stuff.
Sadly that bollox Frank Lampard scored again to draw Chelsea level in the match and ahead 7-5 on aggregate.
So near and yet so far.
Liverpool gave it everything tonight and came very very close to achieving the impossible.
At least we didn’t lose on the night and, yes, we scored four again, but, alas,so did they.
It’s heads held high as we put up a good fight, now we will concentrate on the league where Utd have to slip up sooner or later they have been playing so badly.
Lets hope Utd lose tomorrow night against Porto to get knocked out of the Champions League.
