54' Ramires 1-0
85' Ward 1-1
89' Lampard 1-2
Lampard came back to make a statement.
Lampard should have been sent off! Lucky Chelsea!
I thought Torres looked really good today like a refreshed man. I'm glad Chelsea got the result today after the press being on their backs.
Chelsea got lucky /nuff said
That they did, especially because Lampard should have been sent off.
and Ashley Cole IMO
i noticed that most comments on Goal's facebook praising Torres for helping out Chelsea despite not scoring. I saw Torres at a match 2 days ago and he was really good. Unlucky on that first shot, hitting the post.my first time seeing him in match :) i'll be watching match of the day tonight.
Watching the game it seemed like he has got his desire for the ball back. Making runs, chasing the ball. The only thing I would say is he struggled a little with the physicality of the game, which the old Torres would never have.
I'm thinking that because Drogba wasn't even a sub eased his mind. As much as I like Drogba I don't think Torres will come good till he's gone. Since we paid 50 mil for him they should just start him for an extended period of time and hope he starts scoring.
I always liked Torres and hope he comes good again. I know in the past fans (like me) have joked about him being a flop but I don't wish bad on the fella. I would happily take him at Old Trafford and hope Sir Alex would work his wonders. I just hope to see in top form again because when he is, he is a delight to watch.
It must be great being a Chelsea fan, knowing you had to scrape a win vs THE MIGHTY WOLVES and that you got beat by Villa 3-1 the other day.
5th place at best for them I think.
I remember when Chelsea where almost impossible to beat now I reckon most people would rather play Chelsea away than Swansea away.
haters gotta hate
@Kane_Lfc - Your Below Us , And Think Your There Doing Hardly Any Good? Yet Liverpool Always has to say something when there the one who can't put them down in there own net... Face the Fact Your Not Getting No Champions League Football Or Europa , Good luck with Your Best Player Suarez too because I remember when everyone was talking about how Torres is just not him no more , trust me hes going to come back with an surprise this just a heads up - especially how hes been performing lately... January Were Spending Big - * Also Any Liverpu**ies Want to Disagree Go Ahead
Why can't we all just get along and have a civilized discussion about football/soccer for once.
Lucky tonight. Won't last for long...
if it doesn't last AVB is gone and expect new signings before january ends also....WTF is essien?? he must have recovered from injury by now
even if he recover he won't effective as his one were
i disagree, he's been injured numerous times and has come back the same as always, plus you have no proof that hes lost his skill also i read that he should be in the first team by mid january (according to BBC sport) AVB and chelsea are struggling now, they wont take a risk on a player that isn't doing well in training and he certainly wouldn't be in the first team either
Well, I'm not saying he lost all his skills overnight, but he just not as good as he once were, don't get me wrong he still a great player, the worst of him is still better than Mikel but the last time I see him compare to the old Essien is like an off form Essien just my opinion, I also heard too that he'll be back in mid Jan or something, let just hope be the same Essien as we once know
One part of the team went together to a common squeeze-out session by Manager Villas-Boas on the sidelines after Chelseas goal. Definitive it was a clear attempt to show the skeptics that the Portuguese still have players on their side, but this was more embarrassing than good for Chelseas and their manager. Some players did go, some didn`t, that shows us the squad is split. This shows us that Chelsea have big problem (both on pitch and out of the pitch)
The coach can run over to the players if he wants. but not vice versa.
