Xabi- Alonso is the key to Liverpool reaching the final of the Champion’s league
Readers cast your minds back to 1st January 2005 that was the day when Chelsea came to Anfield and were outplayed, outfight and got a helping hand from the referee, which helped them win a game that they should have lost.
Liverpool were fantastic that day, and had Xabi Alonso not got injured from that crude tackle by Lampard then I am convinced that they would have got at least a point from the match.
Since coming back from that injury, Xabi has been in superb form, and I firmly believe that he holds the key to Liverpool beating Chelsea.
The so called experts will not give Liverpool a chance in this match, and I don’t blame them given Liverpool’s performances in the league. But they have been different class in the Champion’s league and away from home they have yet to concede more than 1 goal.
If Liverpool can score at the Bridge, then I trust them to do well defensively. I am predicting Liverpool to go through.
