Chelsea 0-1 Liverpool: Meireles grabs winner

St George and the Dragon, Vittore Carpaccio
“Two interesting formations produced a tense, tight game which was won by Raul Meireles’ goal. Carlo Ancelotti gave Fernando Torres his debut, fielding the same 4-4-2 diamond system as against Sunderland in midweek, with Nicolas Anelka in the hole behind the front two. Kenny Dalglish continued with his three/five at the back formation, with Jamie Carragher in for Sotirios Kyrgiakos and Maxi Rodriguez replacing Fabio Aurelio.” Zonal Marking

Chelsea 0 – 1 Liverpool
“Fernando Torres’ much-anticipated Chelsea debut ended in disappointment for player and club as Raul Meireles sealed a memorable win for the Spaniard’s former Liverpool team-mates. Meireles hooked home from close range after 68 minutes to take the game – and potentially any lingering title aspirations – from the big-spending Blues. It was a different story for £5 million Torres though, with the most expensive player in British football history hauled off after 65 unremarkable minutes. Torres received a noisy reception when his name was called, with his new fans cheering and his old ones booing the announcement.” ESPN

Luis Suárez, the romantic hothead who fought his way to Liverpool
“Luis Suárez is famous for many things but to employees of Beter Horen, a Dutch hearing aid company, he will always be remembered as the face of a television advertisement promoting its discreet earpieces. That oft-repeated commercial offered some instructive insights into the character of Liverpool’s new £22.8m attacking acquisition from Ajax.” Guardian
