Adam dedicates Reds win

Following Liverpool's late 2-1 triumph over Chelsea yesterday, Charlie Adam dedicated the Barclays Premier League victory to goalkeeper Brad Jones - whose son Luca passed away on the eve of the Stamford Bridge clash.

Glen Johnson's 87th minute effort ensured the Reds left west London with another valuable three points, and the 25-year-old midfielder was quick to send a personal message of support for his Anfield teammate after news emerged about his tragic loss.

"I'd like to dedicate the win to Brad Jones who had a difficult week losing his son," said Adam. "That one was for you big man and we are all thinking about you."

Maxi Rodriguez gave Kenny Dalglish's side a 1-0 half-time lead, but their advantage was cancelled out when substitute Daniel Sturridge levelled for the Blues.

Liverpool looked as though they would have to settle for a point, before Johnson's stunning solo effort restored victory - which Adam believes the team fully deserved.

"It was difficult because they are a good side," he continued. "They have top players but we've got good players ourselves and I thought we were terrific today.

"We did well to bounce back after conceding early in the second half. It's not a scalp because we are two big clubs chasing each other.

“We are in a good position and know it could be better if we'd got other results, but we are happy with the win.

"The result at home to Swansea was hard to take but you have to do that when you come to places like this if you want to do well."
