Liverpool vs Chelsea London [Recap, April 27th]

The Premier League clash between Liverpool and Chelsea London ended in a somewhat unexpected result seeing as the reds did not manage to score at least a goal. We were hoping they would score in both halves, but lost the bet placed with William Hill, and the opinions on who to blame would be divided.
Some would put the blame solely on Steven Gerrard after his error made Chelsea open the score on the last second of the first half. In our humble opinion, the blame should be either shared with Rodgers or put solely on his shoulders. The technician knew their title hopes relied on this match, he knew Chelsea would park the biggest bus in the city and he knew Mourinho would field a much weaker side considering his injury list.

Like many seemed to agree, Liverpool did not even need to win this, a draw would have been enough to keep them in the title race, and at the beginning Chelsea looked more than content with the draw. Granted no one would refuse to score given such chances as Chelsea got, but Liverpool do not know how to play and not concede, that’s their philosophy this year, and they stood by it.

Another highlight of the match, besides Chelsea’s second goal on the 94th minute, was Jose Mourinho’s decision not to field one of his prop excuses of a striker. Fernando Torres was introduced on the 84th minute among the most pronounced jeering and boo-ing Anfield has ever heard. A well-deserved and expected reception that had even some of the Chelsea fans smirking.

The title race is now all in Manchester City’s hands, they win, and they are Champions, while Chelsea will concentrate all their attention towards the Champions League, perhaps with 11 players to park the bus at Stamford Bridge.

Result: -8 units, bet lost
