badgelogo.JPGThere is no better morale booster than beating the defending champs, especially for Liverpool, who have built a special rivalry with Chelsea since both Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho took charge. It all began when Liverpool beat Chelsea in the famous champion’s league clash in 2005, but since then, Chelsea have had the lion’s share of victories in the premiership. Therefore, this victory’s benefits are twofold: 1- It presents little hope of salvaging any titles this season (very little hope) and 2- It proves the fact that the Liverpool-Chelsea clashes will continue to be thrillers and not one sided games.

The game was terrific with 2 early goals sealing it once and for all. Although Chelsea had their problems, it was clear that Liverpool were the dominant team all throughout. The game presented Jermaine Pennant with his first Liverpool goal, and what a goal it was! Another good fact is that Dirk Kuyt scored as well, it is finally a fact that the strikers are scoring regularly, hopefully putting an end to a big problem Liverpool had to put up with early in the season!
