After the dramatic events of Wednesday night, whereby, on home soil, Chelsea snatched yet another very late dramatic goal, we prepare to welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge this Sunday afternoon. Hopefully, the result of this game will be done and dusted before the 90th minute comes along, but then again strange things happen when we play Liverpool, doe they not?

Vital Quotes:

Facing his old club tomorrow, it`d be great f Fernando Torres could score, even more so if it were to be the winner.

Juan Mata, speaking ahead of the game, has no reason to doubt that Torres won`t come good, remarking,

"I believe in Fernando, that he will score goals, because I know him, know how hungry he is, inside himself."

"Every day he is looking to score. Every day he tries so hard, and because I know him I know how he is inside his own mind."


So how about a brace tomorrow Nando?

Chelsea Team News:

Roberto Di Matteo will still be without the injured Frank Lampard and there are also doubts about whether Ashley Cole will have recovered from the hamstring injury he picked up at Swansea last time out.

However, Roberto does now have the luxury of being able to select John Terry again after the club captain completed his four game ban given to him over the Anton Ferdinand affair. The question is though, will he pick him?

Up front, Fernando Torres will be hoping to score his first goal, for Chelsea, against Liverpool after drawing four successive blanks.

As for a starting eleven we`ll go for:-

Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Luiz, Bertrand, Mikel, Ramires, Oscar, Hazard, Mata, Torres

Player to watch: Oscar

Simply sensational is the way to describe his goal on Wednesday night, but don`t miss the fact that he`s not all glitter, this young lad puts in a fair shift helping the team out, but can we have a first Premier league goal please?

Liverpool Team News:

Brendan Rodgers returns to Stamford Bridge, as Liverpool manager, for the first time. No doubt Brendan will be looking to get one over on his former employers but he faces a stiff task. Having rested several 'star` names in their Europa League game, on Thursday night, Rodgers will be fielding his strongest side for this one. Making a return after injury will be the former Chelsea defender, Glen Johnson, however another ex-Chelsea player, Fabio Borini, is on the injured list.

Player to watch: Luiz Suarez

The one Liverpool player who can turn a game on its head. He might not be everybody`s cup of tea but on his day, he`s a real match-winner.

Match Facts & Stats

Revenge is on the menu this Sunday. Liverpool managed to do the double over us in the Premier League last season, including an uncomfortable night at Anfield just days after we`d beaten the in the FA Cup Final. They also knocked us out of the League Cup last season.

In recent times though, the record books show that, results wise, there is very little to choose between the two sides. In the last eight seasons we`ve met 32 times, we`ve won 13 and they`ve won 12

Ref Watch:

Our officials for this hugely anticipated clash will be:- Referee - Howard Webb Assistant - M. Mullarky Assistant - D. Cann Fourth Official - Andre Marriner

Match Prediction:

If Chelsea can keep up the good form they`ve shown this season, I see no reason why they can`t take the three points on offer quite comfortably. Liverpool will create sporadic danger but if he ball is fed to Oscar, Mata and Hazard, their trickery will see us safely home with, hopefully, Torres getting on the score-sheet.

Next Fixtures:

Next up, in the Premier League, for the boys in blue is a trip to face Steve Clarke`s West Bromwich Albion

@ finney, LOL..... I wish ur prediction comes true but i can see it happening. It's going to be an intense game. Liverpool being fully rested within the week and Chelsea full of confidence after defeating shakhtar but ultimately, the game will be won by the hungrier of the two teams and i'll be hoping it's chelsea. Chelsea 3 - 2 Liverpool

Honestly i'm not worried about the officiating at all. After the controversial defeat to man utd, any referee officiating our game knows he is under scrutiny. Mark clattenburg (whatever the outcome of his investigation) knows his carreer will NEVER remain thesame. Other officials knows these and for the time being won't want anything that'll put all attention on them ESPECIALLY Howard Web whose carreer is surrounded by controversies. Lets just relax, the officials will not influence the result.

I hope RDM will be smart enough to make Torres sit this one out. He is easily intimidated by his ex team mates
