Liverpool vs Chelsea, Premier League Tuesday: Open Thread

liverpool chelsea Liverpool vs Chelsea, Premier League Tuesday: Open Thread

It looks like unlikely that Chelsea will be able to finish in fourth position in the Premier League this season, and Roberto Di Matteo certainly thinks so too based on his Chelsea selection. Ross Turnbull starts in goal instead of Petr Cech, while there are starts for Ryan Bertrand and Oriel Romeu.

Chelsea team: Turnbull, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Terry, Bertrand, Essien, Romeu, Ramires, Sturridge, Torres, Malouda.

Liverpool team: Reina, Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Johnson, Henderson, Maxi, Downing, Shelvey, Suarez, Carroll.

For viewers in the United States, the match will be shown live on FOX Soccer at 3pm ET.

    Would have been nice to see Kuyt start what is most likely his final home game for LFC.

  2. Dust says:

    Seeing is believing? Is Liverpool now sponsored by The National UFO association of America? Does it refer to carrol putting in a good performance? Or Liverpool winning at home? WTF LOL

  3. Dust says:

    Who was on here saying John terry was the best cb in England? LoL

  4. Roger says:

    Europa League it is.

  5. Dust says:

    That’s a red not a yellow, seriously.essirn should be off, he could have broken his leg

  6. Fernando says:

    In a game that means nothing Liverpool decide to show up. That’s King Kenny’s Liverpool FC.

    • Yespage says:

      Liverpool didn’t show up, Chelsea kept on handing them the ball. Even Liverpool of this season couldn’t mess that up.

  7. Justin Yerina says:

    I find it ironic how Liverpool fans still want to pull out the history chant at this point. This meaningless game must mean a lot to them, seeing how Chelsea has more trophies this decade. Regardless, a poor peformance from the Blues. No desire.

  8. Dust says:

    Not meaningless for Liverpool, finishing below Everton would not sit well with the fans.

  9. adam says:

    liverpool suck! Chelsea should of killed liverpool and the fans stop booing at Franando Torres he made a good choese leaving liverpool because liverpool suck! I’m glade liverpool is behind Everton but they should be behing Qpr.

  10. Frank says:

    I’m afraid this good win by Liverpool, abeit against a Chelsea side that didn’t look interested and really knew thay had no chance of getting into the top 4, will gloss over Liverpool’s many failures this season. I hope the owners don’t allow themselves to be fooled by this performance and keep Kenny and his poor signings.

    • Yespage says:

      Downing’s penalty miss will prevent the ownership from having this result glaze over the lack of decent play by some players, such as Downing and Henderson. I’m glad Henderson finally scored. What is percentage of on-target shots?

  11. Yespage says:

    I don’t get the booing of Torres. Torres hardly tanked it for Liverpool in his final season, and when Torres was on fire, he was one of the best strikers on the planet. I have no ill will for Torres, nor should actual Liverpool fans. Booing Torres was low class.

    Now, if they were booing Torres because the 50 million pound sale led to Liverpool getting Carroll… that I would understand. :^D

    • TobiasFunke says:

      Torres was booed for the manner in which he left, and the club he left for.

      Chelsea are modern rivals of LFC. If he left for Athletico, Bayern Munich, A.C. Milan, etc. the ill will would be far less. He acted a bit like a prat when he left and gave a few less than flattering interviews. The schtick he got was wholly deserved.
