Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool – Premier League – 20th November 2011

Andre Villas-Boas’ Chelsea side suffered their third defeat in four league games on Sunday afternoon, this time courtesy of a 2-1 loss to Liverpool.

The Blues produced a below-par first-half performance, with Liverpool’s Maxi Rodriguez putting the visitors ahead on 33 after a fine move involving Craig Bellamy and Luis Suarez. Indeed, Chelsea looked frail defensively with holding midfielder Mikel well off the pace.

The Blues did hit back in the second half, courtesy of substitute Daniel Sturridge, who levelled the scores on 55 minutes, as the home side grew in strength. However, it was that old curse of the ex-player which would finally make the difference, with former-Chelsea defender Glen Johnson netting a superb individual goal late on after a fine solo run.

With Chelsea looking anything but genuine title rivals to the two Manchester clubs, one wonders just what Roman Abramovich is thinking right now. Is AVB now in danger of losing his job?

    Superd result and a great team performance. Suarez was a bit off but it didn’t matter much in the end. RIP Luca Jones.
    PS mikel was off the the pace, not of the pace ;)

  2. Anabelle says:

    Chelsea has too many over the hill players. Get rid of the geriatrics dead weight.

    CFC can’t even win at home, how in the world are they going to beat Newcastle?

    RIP Luca Jones. So sad.

    RIP Luca, that one was for you. YNWA

    Great win, R.I.P Luca Jones four years old and gone, sad beyond comparison. Goes to show you though an illness like that doesn’t care who you are what age you are or who your dad is, a fairly sobering reminder that we’re here for a good time not a long time and to make the most out of every precious second. YNWA

    R.I.P Luca

  6. Mr Sensible says:

    And I got ridiculed at for laughing at Pie’s prediction that Chelsea would win the league and for suggesting City would easily be United’s main rival this season if they can sort out their egos.

    What are the odds on AVB getting sacked and being replaced by Hiddink by the end of the year?

  7. Mr Sensible says:

    ..and for saying Luis isn’t very good at defending.

  8. Mr Sensible says:

    …also, whatever Suarez may or may not have said he is a special player.

    Typo Correction:
    “Is AVB now in danger is losing his job?”

    SHOULD BE: Is AVB now in danger of losing his job?

  11. Davy says:

    Did you see the wink Suarez gave Terry when they shook hands?? Like we are in this together and we both have the same views!!! Two deeply abhorant people

  12. Mayo says:

    Glen’s face after his goal makes me laugh every time. Fantastic result.
