Liverpool pulled off a surprise win over Premier League champions Chelsea thanks to a superb display that will have greatly pleased Roy Hodgson and new owner John W.Henry who watched from the stands. From the first whistle the Anfield side appeared to be ready for battle and fully deserved the three points.
Fernando Torres netted after ten minutes after being found by a good Dirk Kuyt ball and the Spaniard was full of confidence throughout the match and went on to net a top notch curling effort on the stroke of half time.
Chelsea battled throughout the second half but couldn’t find a way past an excellent performance from Pepe Reina who pulled off the save of the match from a close range effort from Florent Malouda.
