Liverpool break blue funk!

1 02 2009

At last! After an excruciating run of 8 draws which saw the reds relinquish their top spot to arch rivals Manchester Utd, something of a semblance of parity was restored through Fernando Torres’s first two goals at anfield for over 9 months! Liverpool always were the superior side against Chelsea and Frank Lampard’s straight red card sending off didn’t do the blues any good.

It did take a while for Liverpool to break through the stubborn Chelsea defense of Terry, Alex and Bosingwa who were steadfast. However in the 89th minute the reds put a dagger through the blue heart with Torres getting a vital goal past Petr Cech who was a regular brick wall.  Gerrards brilliance and a “Fabulous” Aurelio cross saw Torres’s powerful header whizz past Cech’s outstretched legs. Soon in the 93rd minute, Benayoun’s tussle resulted in a scrappy pass to Torres which El Nino capitalised on to get his second of the game, putting the match well beyond doubt.

Frank Lampard’s red card was definitely not red and it should have at most been a yellow. Perhaps this decision from Ref Mike Reilly tipped the balance in Liverpool’s favor. However, no credit can be taken away from Torres’s first headed goal.

“Where is Robbie Keane and why didn’t he make the first team?”…. Is a question on everyone’s mind.
