Chelsea 0-0 Liverpool

Games between these two sides are rarely entertaining for the neutral, but generally very close, and this was no exception. With Stamford Bridge not a happy hunting ground for Liverpool in recent history, I'd have been very happy to take a draw beforehand, but in fact we looked the more likely winners - the nearest Chelsea came to scoring was arguably Riise's header towards his own net, but into the arms of Reina.

It's a shame Torres was injured on international duty for with him we really may have won. Of course, Chelsea were missing players too, notably Terry and Drogba, but we don't have the luxury of spending £15m on replacements. Those we brought in generally acquitted themselves well, however, with Skrtel looking much better than his debut and Kuyt having a decent game on the right of midfield, though without ever looking like a scoring threat (and mis-controlling the one opportunity he did have to get into the box).
