0-2 Didier Drogba 52′
1-2 Andy Carroll 64′
chelsea deserve it
60 minutes of the play versus 30 for Liverpool. They probably did. Liverpool had no real threat until Carroll came on, he was their best player in fairness but he didn't start. I can't say I was surprised by the result, in the preview article here i had this firmly down as a Chelsea win because of their counter attack and ability to score more goals. If only Liverpool had actually turned up at the start, it could have been very different, but Chelsea had done just enough to put it beyond them before the run of play changed. Liverpool will just look to at least secure 8th now, but their minds will surely wander to next season. For me Chelsea have missed out on 4th (but are guaranteed 6th), and once that is all but confirmed tomorrow with a Spurs or Newcastle victory, they will put eyes on the ultimate prize...
Wow, we were really hanging in there for the last 30 mins. One trophy down, one more to go! At least there were some positives for Liverpool, Andy Carroll looks like he's coming back into form.
Benefica and Napoli AND barca were all stupid lucky games for chelsea. Chelseas luck isnt going to hold up ill remind you dont worry...
liverpool only showed up 60 minutes later, carrol made a real difference but it wasn't enough chelsea did deserve it, they played better for the majority of the match im not sure fourth place is gone yet spurs and newcastle could slip up like they have before, afterall arsenal did today one done, one to go :)
4th is surely gone, Arsenal only need another point to be certain. BOTH Newcastle and Spurs have to lose one game and only draw the other. If EITHER gets a win from their last 2 games, that puts them beyond Chelsea. You are relying then on not one team to slip up, but 2 of the 3 above Chelsea messing up badly. Chelsea also have to play Liverpool at Anfield in a few days, with revenge on their minds. It'll take a miracle combination of highly unlikely events to conspire to let Chelsea back into 4th spot. Their best hope will simply be to beat Bayern in two weeks.
im banking on chelsea winning the champions league so finishing fourth wont matter but just in case that doesn't happen we need to look at other options even if there highly unlikely this whole season has been crazy and full of surprises, maybe one more is coming....
Chelsea win the CL? hahahahahahaha funny...
That's what everyone said about us beating Napoli, and Barcelona hahahahahahahaha funny!
dont forget benfica, we were written off every step of the way and proved the haters wrong each time
I was there. Saw the goals. Well done to Chelsea!
What an amazing experience
Congratulations Chelsea on a Trophy well won.
Chelsea were the better side, Liverpool this season have been a cup side and without Carroll have been performing poorly. That says a lot when he's not scoring in the league. They need to make a big decision come Summer either ship him out at the cost of cup matches but to save cash or keep him and probably drop points once again in the league. They really need a strike partner for Suarez and Carroll just isn't that man.
