Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea tackle Liverpool at Stamford Bridge knowing three points will effectively end their rival's title ambitions


Chelsea are unbeaten in 75 home league matches and will seek to improve this record when they entertain a Liverpool side who have yet to score a goal at Chelsea since 2004. As ever, the game is likely to be a cagey-yet-entertaining affair, which the home side having fresh memories of recent triumphs against Rafa Benitez's side.

This corresponding fixture last season was settled with a stunning turn and finish by Didier Drogba whilst Frank Lampard and Andrei Shevchenko scored against the same opposition in this season's League Cup. Lampard also scored in the 1-1 draw at Anfield in August, though the England midfield dynamo is in a race to be fit for the big showdown.

If they beat us we'll never hear the end of it.they'll prob have a sodding party up in scummy land.

1-0 or a draw.Either way its gana be tight but after today we've gotta go with that bouncing back feeling.Cant afford to drop anymore points now

All be good as long as no one gets injuried in the England friendly!

Grants chance to prove to everyone he has what he takes against the top 3...

Lets stay in the bloody race and make scummy cry even more!!!

We have to win this, we have no alternative. Realistically six points is too much to ask now. It was the same at this stage last campaign, we just can't catch up. However, ending up third may be a blessing in disguise - yes, we will have to play extra European games (unless we win the tournament this season), but it allows us to assess our team and gather early form.

Wont mind 3rd,long as we are say 6 points behind I'll settle for that.We've come close at least and if scum end up miles up and 5th place even better as really they have no excuses.

A Gerrard own goal would make this game more fun hehehe

Last time we had to catch Manu only. Thats all. But this time we have to catch 2 teams. One team can slip up. But I cant say same abt 2 teams. Though we have home fixtures against top 2. Now we gotta see how many points Liverpool gonna cut from Manu and Asnl from their matches. Manu vs Asnl is one to watch for too. I still believe we can grab the top spot but we gotta win every single match till month of April. Like what Jose did last year.

Our key players are not playing in England Friendly (i.e. Lamps and JT). Mikel/Essien will be back by 10th Feb because on of them gonna end their ACN campaign today.

BTW Lamps gonna play against loserpool?

Lampsy will come back from injury and have a fantastic game (Just like the Chelsea vs Man City game)... Although this time, he'll score a hat-trick! ;)

I'm scared about this. Trust those lot to ruin everything. If we lose, we'll lose the unbeaten home record and our title hopes would be gone and to lose everything because of liverpool would be horrible, i would be suicidal. I can see sunday being a nightmare. But on the other hand, how the fuck can they beat us at the bridge? they aint even scored at the bridge against us since Bruno Cheyrou early in 2004, and thats in all competitions. Their current form is nothing but shocking, they are an average premiership team and without Gerrard and Torres they are a shit premiership team. If they win on sunday, it would be because of one of the following reasons.

1) Early Chelsea red card

2) Chelsea hit the woodwark twice

3) Liverpool score a controversal goal, either a dodgy pen or a bad offside decision

4) Chelsea just dont turn up

5) Liverpool get awfully lucky and the law of averages, the same law that made fulham win today and us draw with pompey and leicester beat crystal palace gets us.

we are sooo much better than them. 2-0 to us.

All we can do is concentrate on what we are doing and not think about anyone else.

This season no-one expected us to be in a position such as we are after the early goings on at the start of the campaign. Its all about those 2 above us. We've went about our business doing what we needed and thats all we can really continue to do. Theres no pressure on us whatsoever imo.

Liverpool got their first win yesterday this year.....says enough about their form.

Mikel could return and Lampard should no doubt be ready. I read a few weeks ago that JT was targeting the Liverpool game for his return. :D

If we put them to the sword then they will no doubt be put out of any chance they dream of challenging for the title and in turn keep the pressure on the top 2.

Just noticed this in the oppening post.

"Chelsea are unbeaten in 75 home league matches and will seek to improve this record when they entertain a Liverpool side who have yet to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since 2001."

thats actually wrong. In 2001 we never lost to them, beat them 3-0 in 00/01 and 4-0 in 01/02 and they beat us in 2004. Just thought i'd kinda say that :P

that's the line up i would hope for......................but can ballack and lamps play in the same midfield, it seems to me earlier in the season it just was'nt working ballack with no lamps and visa versa worked.

This is a very important game in the season for us. To take 3 points away from this game with be massive for us and give us a good motivation to kick on in the league.

Having Lamps and Mikel back is going to be a very very big bonus for us and make us a lot stronger in midfield. Yes Ballack and Lampard can play in the same midfield together and they will show that hopefully in this game.

It will never be an easy game but i would think we have the quality to be able to beat them at home.

I think we can, and will, effectively end Liverpool's title ambitions this season, last time we were lucky to escape with a draw after some shocking refereeing, but i think if we can get at Liverpool from out wide and put pressure on their full-backs we'll have a lot of joy against them, good news that Riccy will be back for this one and i'm confident he can keep Torres quiet with a little rough and tough from Alex. Hopefully Lampsy will be able to play some part in this one and Anelka has a nack for scoring past his former clubs so all in all it won't neccessarily be the easiest game but i'm confident we'll come away with three points
