Last night’s own goal was of course hugely embarrassing but it’s worth noting that had John Arne Riise not been there to clear, then there were a couple of Chelsea players ready to tap in. Also Riise has displayed a high level of ability over his entire Liverpool career, although obviously the last 18 months have seen his performances dip a great deal and therefore it’s no surprise that many top teams want the Norwegian.

There is of course a danger that the 27-year-old’s Anfield career may well become more remembered for that own goal than his amazing 30-yard thunderbolts. I am sure most Liverpool fans will agree that over the 300-plus matches he has taken part in, JAR has done a good job overall and maybe he is worth holding on to? What do Reds fans think?
