Fernando Torres' much-anticipated Chelsea debut ended in disappointment for player and club as Raul Meireles sealed a memorable 1-0 win for the Spaniard's former Liverpool team-mates.
Meireles hooked home from close range after 68 minutes to take the game - and probably any lingering title aspirations - from the big-spending Blues.
It was a different story for £50million Torres though, with the most expensive player in British football history hauled off after 65 unremarkable minutes.
