Chelsea 0 - 1 Liverpool

Liverpool triumphant over Chelsea

Following the 1 - 1 draw against Atletico Madrid in Champions League, Liverpool went on to defeat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge; ending their 86-game unbeaten home record.

I watched the match on tv, i was impressed. Liverpool seems to be playing a different style of football. They were quick & extremely disciplined in defence, placing Gerrard between Keane and the midfield gave him a free role & it paid off handsomely.

Carra, Agger, Aurelio & Arbeloa combined & worked perfectly to deny Chelsea the equaliser. They played a solid game & Reina was rarely required to make a save.

Alonso's deflected 10-minute goal was a tad lucky, but it made all the difference between the 2 sides. After the goal, Liverpool was playing with more confidence & defended with plenty of resolute. I thought Chelsea would get the equaliser sooner or later with sustained pressure & possession of the ball.

We now go 3 points clear, topping the table.
9 games into the season, still early days though.
