That was hard to take.
Matching Chelsea stride for stride all throughout the match, never second best in the game. Yet we end up losing 2-0.
We looked comfortable all the way through this game until Didier Drogba whipped in a ball for Anelka to score and it was 1-0.
Still we never panicked, kept our shape and composure, without really threatening a strong Chelsea defence.
The second goal set up by ‘cheat’ Drogba, who skinned Jamie Carragher on the left, was turned in by sub Malouda to give the scoreline a flattering look about it.
We lost but we played fairly well, so eight games in we have lost three and won five.
What does this mean in terms of winning the League?
While today’s defeat is hard to take, it is not fatal, we are six points behind the now League-leaders Chelsea, but if we beat them back at Anfield, that gap is back down to three.
Man Utd(scum) lost five times last year and still won the Premier League ahead of us.
(I am trying to look at the positives here)
I am looking forward to the appearance of Alberto Aquilani who should be ready tor action soon after the upcoming international matches.
He might add the missing ingredient to our team since Alonso’s departure to Madrid, who lost to Sevilla tonight.
So an undeserved defeat but lets hope it doesn’t happen too often this season, we are better than that, we are Liverpool!
