Liverpool clocked up another win at Stamford Bridge and ensured that manager Kenny Dalglish continued his record of never having lost against Chelsea as a manager with a well-deserved 2-1 win in the Premier League.
After implementing a high-tempo pressing game in the first half, Liverpool took control with a well-worked goal from Maxi Rodriguez and deserved their one goal advantage at the break.
However, a change in emphasis and a goalscoring substitution at half time for Chelsea saw them equalize through Daniel Sturridge just 10 minutes into the second period, and they were much the stronger side over the next half hour of the game.
The game swung both ways late, as each side tried to grab a late winner, and it was the away team that grabbed it with a wonderful solo strike from Glen Johnson.
The result left the Reds on level points with the Blues—as well as Arsenal and Tottenham—and it means Andre Villas-Boas has lost all his encounters so far this season against rivals for the Champions League places.
Here are six things each side will have learned from today's game.
