Chelsea v Liverpool: Modern Classics

Brought to you by William Hill


Last time out at Stamford Bridge....

Chelsea 0-1 Liverpool
Barclays Premier League
6th February, 2011; Stamford Bridge

A game remembered for Fernando Torres more than it's quality on the pitch, the £50m January signing failed to breach his old club's defence before being substituted on his debut.

Midfielder Raul Meireles struck the only goal of the game to the delight of the traveling fans.

Three other classic encounters...

Chelsea 3-2 Liverpool (Agg: 4-3)

Champions League semi-final, second leg;
30th April, 2008; Stamford Bridge

After Liverpool claimed glory at the same stage the year before, the Blues would not be denied after Didier Drogba put Avram Grant's side in-front.

Fernando Torres sent the game to extra-time before an emotional Frank Lampard & Drogba put the hosts 3-1 up.

Ryan Babel scored a late cracker to give the Reds hope, but it was too late and Chelsea would move on to Moscow for 'that' final against Manchester United.

Liverpool 2-3 Chesea
Carling Cup final;
27th February, 2005; Millennium Stadium

The trophy that started a revolution under Jose Mourinho, although John Arne-Riise had put the Reds in-front in the first minute.

A Steven Gerrard own goal sent the game to extra-time, where Didier Drogba and Mateja Kezman made it 3-1 to the Blues. Antonio Nunez's header wasn't enough, and John Terry lifted the trophy in Wales.

Chelsea 4-4 Liverpool (Agg: 7-5)
Champions League quarter-final, second leg;
14th April, 2009; Stamford Bridge

A quite breathtaking clash saw the tie swing in both directions, with Rafa Benitez's side taking an early two goal lead before Drogba, Alex and Lampard put Chelsea in-front.

Two goals in as many minutes from Lucas and Kuyt made it anyone's game with minutes remaining, but Lampard booked a place in the semi-final with an 89th minute clincher.
