I thought we controlled possesion as we always were going to then looked vulnerable to your flair players on the break, the game went to cast in that respect. Terry's header was a horrid lapse by Agger but we rode our luck with Oscar and Mata missing fairly easy chances. Once we got the equaliser it looked like we were going to rob the points.
We have little chance of finishing in the top 4, only hope is we are within 6 points come January then get some goal scorers in. Your defence is nowhere near title winning standard, Especially if you want to be a counter attacking side. Man U have poor individuals in their defence but they are so attack minded that they get out of jail with the quality and tenacity of their wing play and forwards.
Hi Robert M, I do so enjoy the games against Chelsea. I don't think Chelsea controlled the game, far from it. If anything I thought it was pretty even. Liverpool dominated the ball for long periods, but Chelsea looked more dangerous and were more attacking/direct. Chelsea were at their most dangerous when we attacked, as we often gave the ball away sloppily, especially Allen, only to have Hazard, Oscar and Torres breaking at us. I also thought the result was fair. If we had nicked it, it wouldn't have been in any way justified, but likewise, Chelsea 4-0 up at HT??? Apart from the Mata chance, I don't think there was much else that really threatened us.
What is clear is that Liverpool are developing. Sterling didn't look a class below Hazard by any standards, and I was really impressed by Wisdom in both systems we played. Suso also came on, and looked OK as a playmaker, after a really dodgy start.
Once this LFC team learns to be a bit more incisive, adds to the personnel in the striking dept, and improves our possession of the ball whilst going forward (which we will), I can see us being a force again, without the need to spend City or Chelski millions.

I thought Sterling had a poor game yesterday. I have been very impressed with him in previous games this season - I think he will be an awesome player when he is bigger and stronger and I think he is the best thing of yours that Rodgers has introduced. But yesterday he seemed to get pushed off the ball rather a lot and I don't remember any speedy mazey runs from him.
