Reds Aim To Show Torres & Meireles What They're Missing

He'll be needing the toilet after Liverpool are done with his side on Sunday...
Liverpool make the trip down South on Sunday to face Chelsea in the first of two clashes this month with the London side. This game has had enough spice sprinkled over it in the recent weeks, the factors of Torres and Meireles will surely add to the already predictable atmosphere and both clubs could seriously do with a big win.

Without delving in to it too much the news around both Luis Suarez and John Terry will also play a part on Sunday. Both players insist they are innocent but with Suarez actually being charged before kick off, we can't afford to let off field situations filter on to it.

Team news means that Suarez may not be available to start anyway after a slight back problem he picked up in the international break. Jamie Carragher is back and a choice for manager Kenny Dalglish but captain Steven Gerrard is still out.

For Chelsea it's only Michael Essien who is unavailable but Drogba and Sturridge are doubts after just recovering from knocks.

Liverpool have won the last two of the clashes between the two clubs and kept a clean sheet both times. Interestingly in the last Liverpool win it was Raul Meireles who scored the winner. Meireles appears to have started his Chelsea career in the same fashion as he left it at Liverpool, Torres on the other hand still looks a shadow of his former self.

The Reds' last four league games consist of three draws and a win, Chelsea have two wins and two losses. The draws of course for Liverpool have been hard to take because none of them have occurred through a lack of chances, i just hope we've perfected the act in time for Sunday.

Stat Sandwich

  • Liverpool have only let the opposition have 38 shots on target so far this season, the lowest tally in the league.
  • Chelsea have picked up the most cards in the league this season - 31 in total.
  • Liverpool have hit the woodwork ten times this season, more than any other side.

In all honesty, i can't predict what is going to happen tomorrow. International breaks for a starters always seem to mess things up and with the chance of Suarez not starting I'm not sure where the chances to get the flow of the game underway are going to come from, however i can see a free kick or corner causing havoc in the box and being enough for Liverpool to nick a win.

Not completely confident and think Chelsea will grab a goal but still feel we have enough to get all three points. Here's hoping anyway and it should be a cracking match!
