Two goals were enough for Liverpool to win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on November 20. 

Coming from a scoreless match at home against Swansea City, the Reds faced a tough match against Chelsea. However, Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was able to rally the troops to record their third consecutive victory on the road.

Maxi Rodriguez put the Reds up after a fantastic goal but Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge provided the equalizer just after the half. However, former Chelsea player Glen Johnson scored the winner after a fantastic left-footed strike just out of reach for Petr Cech.

It was a great win against former Liverpool favorite Fernando Torres and against the London-based club. Liverpool and Chelsea are becoming fierce rivals after having faced each other in domestic cup and European matches. 

The match ended with a thrilling 2-1 win for Liverpool.
