The Mirror quotes a desperate Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez as saying that they need to gain maximum point at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on Sunday in the English Premier League if they are to maintain any credibility to their season. Liverpool’s title ambitions have already dashed up in smoke and last season’s UEFA Champions League beaten finalists are struggling for fourth spot.
It is clear we have to win at Chelsea if we want to lift our season. It is a big game for us, because a result against a big team can offer real momentum.
We are fighting for fourth position and if we beat Chelsea we can think about maybe third position.
But if we lose, then we’re running out of games and it would be much more difficult to even think about third place. We know how important it is.
The Reds visit the Blues searching for their first victory under Rafa over Chelsea. Will they get that elusive first taste of win over the Blues? On the current form, you may as well forget it.
