Very good press resistance from them. Their midfield goes a long way to help them with that.

Had we took our chances,questions marks would have been asked of him.

They missed a couple of great chances as well.
Messi in fact doesn't have a recognizable trait.

While watching that game, I became completely disillusioned with the the sheer state of what much of football supporting in this country has become.

1st 20 minutes was virtually continuous anti scouse, Steve Gerrard, or Hillsborough chants.
It was 30 minutes before I heard a Chelsea chant.

Imagine playing in front of that lot. Imagine signing for this "big club" in London, playing a big game against title rivals and you don't hear a song in support of your team for half an hour.
Imagine being one of those fans singing that shite, imagine being so empty headed that you feel compelled to join in.
 
I know they probably think it's "banter", they may even want a reaction.

Well they've got one, and you know what it is?

Pity.

I actually pity those that have so little going on in their heads that they think coming out with such shite is a way to support a football team and a way to enjoy themselves, so knock yourselves out you sad bastards, fill your boots.

There was quality all over the pitch on Saturday. It was a battle of heavyweights.

It is really quite uplifting to see how we dominated them in the second half and kept plugging away for the draw. When it was 1-0 I would have still put the chance of the next goal Chelsea 60%, Liverpool 40% purely because we had to press so much and a break-away was always possible.

Yeah, two very strong and very good teams battling it out, a draw really was the fairest result in the end. I think the City game will be similar, but with us winning as we often do when City visit.

I couldn't agree more. Chelsea have always been a shitty little club with a fanbase consisting of brainless, knuckle-dragging vermin though, so nothing new there. You just notice it more in more modern times because since they won the oil money lottery their team is higher profile. What we are seeing is what we would be seeing if Millwall had won that lottery. Classless morons thinking they are Billy Big Bollocks.

That fanbase does not deserve the quality team they have playing for them. Personally, I'd hate to have to play in front of such horrible gobshites every other week. People obsessed more with the opposition than their own team. It's not just them, of course. Everton, City and United are absolutely obsessed with us too and sing/talk more about us than their own sides, but Chelsea morons seem to hit even greater loss than them lot.

I do hope the Justice for Grenfell banner was appreciated by those down there that actually matter. Those Tory/Fascist twats in blue can fuck right off, though. Sad, sad cases indeed. If ever the saying that money cannot buy you class needed some evidence to back it up, just point people in the direction of Chelsea FC and it's moronic fanbase.

I was really impressed by Kovacic in both games against us. He's always moving and helps them play a much higher tempo than they were under Conte. Him and Jorginho have made a massive difference to their style of play.

Kante is unbelievably good at football. Top 10 player in the world now without any doubt whatsoever .

Agree with this, he's brilliant. Thankfully though Sarri's playing him out of position as an attacking mid to fit Jorginho in the deep position. Against weaker opposition that sit back this season it's meant Kante's influence has been massively reduced.

Sometimes you just have to call it as you see it.

They have a wonderful team and the manager is a world away from classless clowns like Mourinho. They play some great football and have some magnificent players. I really enjoyed seeing us slugging it out with them on Saturday. Two high quality sides going toe to toe.

Despite that, their fanbase is a steaming cesspit of utter morons. If they'd shown class, no doubt we'd be commenting on that instead, but alas...

It's a shame really. I'd love us to have a healthy rivalry with a club boasting a quality team like our own where there is also a healthy respect between the fanbases. Sadly for British football, you seem to have to go abroad for that.

I think he's being wasted in that position at Chelsea. Never worried to see him charging onto a ball through the midfield/defence.

But he is playing some decent penetrative passes at times, as we saw for his through ball for Hazard's chance at the weekend.

As someone who hasn't bought into the best player in the league mantra which developed during Chelsea's title-winning season a couple of seasons back, I've been very impressed with how well he's playing that role personally. His touch, his dribbling and his passing in tight areas is better than we've seen in previous years. If he could add a few goals to his game he's very Essien-like at present.

I don't think he's wasted there at all. Wouldn't make sense to play him where Jorginho is as, to an extent, he lacks the spatial awareness and height to do so, but more to the point Jorginho is arguably the best player in the league in that role. The question mark will come over how many goals Kante and Kovacic can provide - but that's the same with us when Milner and Wijnaldum play.

I think this does play a big part in it, sadly.
I remember straight after Grenfell when pictures of the victims came out. Instantly there was so much venom online and people saying how it didn't really matter because they were all immigrants. I say people, but what I really mean is sick, monstrous mutants with no human compassion or decency.

As so much of the Chelsea 'support' is right/far-right wing, the comments from them do not really surprise me unfortunately.

Goodness me. I am really sad to hear that. What type of human being says those types of things? 'Never Mind. Just a bunch of immigrants'.

Their reaction - to sing "Always the Victims" five minutes after that banner was displayed - sums them up. I genuinely hate the horrible twats. How on Earth do you see that banner, then immediately hit back with taunts about Hillsborough and Heysel?

My guess is it shamed the majority of Chelsea fans as Grenfell is local to Stamford Bridge and they`ve never said a word.

I would also hazard a guess that as we know from past history, Chelsea have a racist element to their support and they wouldn`t take too kindly to us trying to shine a light on Government over this disaster as the majority of the victims weren't white.

I don't think that's a fair reflection on London at all. There's a hell of a lot of 'in between' in London, neither rich nor poor. Most Londoners are absolutely appalled by what happened at Grenfell, whatever their income bracket/social class.

Besides, most of the traditional Chelsea fans in the stadium (i.e. those who supported the club pre the Abramovic plastics) would definitely not be what you've described as "rich London" - think of them more as Millwall Light. "Bovver Boys" from West London, many of whom have far right tendencies. It won't have entered their mind that we were showing support for "under London" and felt bad about it. The ones that have been laying into us for supporting Grenfell are just vile, thick idiots who want to have a dig at Liverpool fans and don't care how ridiculous it is.

Some of that is fair enough, even if it is also as generalised as my depiction of the Chelsea support. However, I think the motive for their reaction was mixed up in a dislike of the message, as much as a dislike of the messengers. And your categorisation of them as 'far right' suggests why.

Goodness me. I am really sad to hear that. What type of human being says those types of things? 'Never Mind. Just a bunch of immigrants'.

One year on and nothing seem to have been solved.. When you look at what the people of Hong Kong did in one week after the disaster, you get a bit disappointed with the founder of democracy etc.

I know. It beggars belief really. We are all human beings, for goodness sake. Sadly, I saw a lot of the ''well, they were only immigrants'' comments after Grenfell. I know newspaper comments columns and video comments sections are often cesspits and best avoided, but I read plenty of stuff that made me feel sick. Since the Brexit vote and Trump getting in over in the USA I think an lot of truly vile specimens have become even more vocal and the relative anonymity of the internet gives them a platform.

Chelsea fans? I'm sure they have many decent fans who are good citizens and human beings. But unfortunately, they also have a long-standing and large proportion of proud racists with far-right, fascist ideology. Although I agreed with No666 about the rich London / poor London thing, I'd like to clarify a little if possible. To me, I feel it more accurate to suggest it's more about the establishment in general rather than just an economic thing.

Liverpool is seen (rightly or wrongly) as an anti-establishment city, and Liverpool FC, or more accurately, the bulk of its fanbase are seen as left-wing and anti-establishment too. Our city has, in the past, been run into the ground by the Tory government but this city has always fought back. The establishment has never liked that or our spirit. The people of this city were not only let down by the establishment after Hillsborough, the establishment and its supporters in the media covered it's own arse and blamed innocent people for its own failings. Basically, this city and its people take no shit. We stand up and fight for what we believe in. Although started by sick mancs for their own reasons, the 'Always the victims' chant is also a way of people wanting to silence us so we go away and stop rocking the boat. Coming from Chelsea it has the feel of right-wing supporters of the establishment hitting out at and wanting to silence the voices of dissent. It comes over as - Hillsborough, Orgreave, Dockers, Grenfell etc... = self-pitying whingers who need to shut up and go away because we don't want to see it or hear it.

The banner? Maybe they see it as  'more whinging sentimentality' from people questioning the establishment and its tendency to cover its own arse and the arses of those who support it, from people who want to hold it to account? Basically, they want us all to just shut up and go away. We won't, so they deride and ridicule instead, hence the constant victim blaming they love to indulge in.

Hard to believe there were (a lot of) people who didn’t think Hazard could make the step up into a very good goalscorer in Sarri’s system. Should have been obvious to everyone with his talent level and Sarri’s system that they were a match made in heaven.
“You cannot call overseas Liverpool supporters glory hunters. We’ve won one trophy this decade. If they’re glory hunters, they’re really bad ones. They’re actually journey hunters. It’s the journey and the story. Something about Liverpool has grabbed them." - Neil Atkinson (May, 2019)

"So don’t think about it – just play football.” - Jurgen Klopp

Fair doos hes playing well.

However, Southampton handed that win to them on a plate today. Awful at the back, and I mean Keegan's Newcastle level of awful, and up front apart from Ings who was in miss sitter mode, they had no one else. At the moment its gonna be a toss up between them and Newcastle as to whos the 3rd team relegated - I think Ings may keep them up.

Chelsea are playing neat football but are way too reliant on Hazard doing something magical every game. Giroud and Morata are mediocre, Willian's effectiveness has gone totally and quite frankly there's not much left after that.

I think they'll struggle to keep up the scoring.
All the badge kissing in the world don't make up for the fact that they are, frankly, not Liverpool Football Club. It's not their fault. Its just how it is.
