Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea

Finally league victory over Mourinho's men. Granted we may be considered lucky that, for various reasons, they had lost Makalale, Terry and Carvalho, but for a team with such resources - and who felt they could dispense with Huth and Gallas in the summer - I find it hard to feel much sympathy. Let it not be forgotten we were missing Kewell, Garcia and Sissoko, among others.

Kuyt took early advantage of Chelsea's defensive frailty, and Pennant followed it up with a superb strike from distance - what a way to break his duck. Too bad we couldn't add to it - Riise was close, and I think Crouch may have had a penalty claim when going to the rebound after Riise had hit the bar. Still, 2-0 was a satisfactory lead, and one that didn't look in much danger of being dented.
