Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool come face-to-face with the team that destroyed their Title ambitions in such dramatic fashion last season.

Chelsea come to Anfield on Saturday afternoon as League-leaders, unbeaten in the 2015 campaign so far.
Gerrards Slip

Liverpool, then and now were guilty of passing the ball around the back too much and it was Momo Sakho’s ill-fated back-pass towards Steven Gerrard who slipped as we all know, letting in Demba Ba to score an unlikely goal against the run of play.

The game ended 2-0 to Chelsea and with it, the title dream of last Season ended also.

A 0-0 draw that day and a win against Crystal Palace would have clinched a first League title for Liverpool in 24 years.

With the subsequent departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and the lengthy injury to Daniel Sturridge, who hasn’t featured since August, Liverpool have found it very hard going this Season.

Sitting in 7th, Brendan Rodger’s side are struggling for goals, struggling for form and struggling at the back again.

This philosophy of keeping possession is all well and good, but it cost us last year and it is costing us this year in terms of being on the front-foot and dominating games, which we are not doing.

To  see new signing Alberto Moreno, an attacking full-back constantly passing the ball back from the halfway line is infuriating.

It is handing the initiative to opposing teams as we seem to look almost too afraid to attack them at times.

It has to change, we have to be more positive and our attacking players must get on the ball much more and be creative if we want to get back into the top-four, starting with a win over Chelsea.
