Liverpool showed great character to battle past Chelsea to clinch a deserved win at Stamford Bridge on the day that former hero Fernando Torres lined up for the Blues. In a game of few chances Maxi managed to somehow hit the bar from what seemed like inches.
Predictably Torres was booed each time he touched the ball and the Spaniard did little and was subbed early in the second half. Then Liverpool struck when the Stamford Bridge back line failed to deal with a ball into the box and in form Raul Meireles thumped in from close range.
The win, Liverpool’s fourth on the trot, takes the Merseyside club back into the top six.
