Well as the crowd poured out, I laughed my head off the last twenty minutes of that game. To celebrate the biggest pile of crap I've seen from a Chelsea side since the Emirates in September 2016, I'm going to write our match up in the style of a first class, grade A nappy sh*tter -(This match report is written by Alex Churchill from her fantastic Chelsea Blog - A Girl Who Likes Balls.

Us: Oh my. No Thibaut, no Cahill, no Drinkwater, no Fabregas and of course no Pesto (silly autospell, silly boy) and no Morata. That's six. Conte has, I believe, since said that we were missing five important players today. Did he just exclude the keeper?

Well, it's never a dull occasion is it when Liverpool play one of the big teams? The match against Spurs at Anfield on Sunday was certainly full of goals as most expected but the result was somewhat tinged by some very questionable referring/lino decisions.

No More Invincibles

Arsenal Fan TV may have had a bad weekend but at least they can thank the Reds for halting City's chances of creating another team of invincibles. Liverpool at times on Sunday afternoon looked unbeatable themselves and thankfully, despite conceding in quick succession late on, Klopp's side did what no other has done this season and beat Pep Guardiola.

Unbelievable. That man is worth every penny of that £75 million for the header alone. Absolutely brilliant, Everton at one stage actually thought they were on for a win at Anfield...

In a Merseyside derby filled with questionable refereeing decisions, controversial incidents and eventually goals, it was Liverpool who ended the game victorious and Klopp's side progress safely to the next stage of the FA Cup.

Report: Liverpool 5 Swansea 0

Liverpool put five past Swansea at Anfield on Boxing Day and regained 4th place in the league from Spurs in the process. It was an emphatic win for the Reds but it is important to remember that Swansea were not exactly the strongest of opposition. The Welsh side are still languishing at the bottom of the league after this fixture and look in serious trouble.

Reds Throw Away 2-0 Lead At The Emirates

The Liver Bird at related • 0 views
For fifty minutes on Friday night, Liverpool had fooled their fans into thinking it would be a walk in the park at the Emirates. Two-nil up after goals from Philippe Coutinho and Mo Salah, the Reds looked dominate against an Arsenal side lacking in ideas but after a spell of just five minutes, Klopp's side had lost their lead.

Five Talking Points From Moscow

The Liver Bird at related • 0 views
1) One of those days... again? How do you have a front line consisting of Salah, Firmino, Mane and Coutinho yet fail to be clinical? It's amazing isn't it, you're sat there thinking "you know what would be perfect here? An in-form Peter Crouch." Ok maybe that's a slight exaggeration but you get the jist, this side needs a true finisher.

Five Talking Points From Hoffenheim Away

1) Trent double A What a goal from the youngster and what a superb way to open your score card, by netting your first goal for the club in a Champions League qualifier with a beautiful free kick that also happens to make you the youngest Liverpool goalscorer the competition has seen (both as the European Cup and as the Champions League).

Five Things We Learned At London Stadium

1) Playing two strikers can actually work

I've been saying for months now, Liverpool should not be afraid to field two strikers. For me, the whole season we have faced sides such as West Ham and failed to break them down with our Plan A. I love Jurgen Klopp but I think most of us would agree that he can be a bit stubborn at times.

Emre Can, What A Hero

The Liver Bird at related • 0 views
Liverpool took a huge three points from Watford on Bank Holiday Monday thanks to a wonder strike from Emre Can. The German international performed some insane acrobatics to reach Lucas Leiva's cross and scissor kick home the Reds' only goal of the night.
As the race for the top four continues to be too close to call, Jurgen Klopp simply had to steer his side to victory against Watford.

Firmino Goal Seals Another Three Points

Without getting too tied down in football cliches it certainly was a scrappy game at The Hawthorns for Liverpool on Sunday afternoon. The Reds walked away with all three points thanks to a single goal from Roberto Firmino but it wasn't exactly plain sailing.

Five Things We Learned From The Merseyside Derby

1.The Reds still have it The 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday afternoon showed that the Reds haven't lost it. When push comes to shove Liverpool have one of the most exciting attacks in the Premier League and while there have been some lacklustre performances of late against smaller sides, this victory highlighted all the positives.

Four Things We Learned From Burnley

1) Good to grind out a result Liverpool's 2-1 win over Burnley on Sunday afternoon may not have been the most emphatic of victories but it was a win that proved the Reds do have the ability to grind out a result.

Going 1-0 down after seven minutes seemed far too familiar for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Five Things We Learned From The Arsenal Game

Mane is class On his day Mane is absolute quality. The confidence he shows when facing a side like Arsenal is just superb, never afraid to take a man on he caused the Gunners several problems on Saturday and also scored a great goal at 40 minutes.

Frustratingly he can sometimes go missing in some of the smaller fixtures but I still feel he is a player that will have clubs knocking down doors for him in the summer.

Ranieri Who?

It was just bound to happen wasn't it? A managerless Leicester turn up at the King Power having failed to find the back of the net in 2017 yet manage to put three past Liverpool with absolute ease.

It would have been a bad time for any side to face Leicester to be honest but as mentioned in the match preview, this fixture had all the makings of a banana skin for the Reds.

The Draw Is Not Enough

The Liver Bird at related • 1 view
On another day in another season a 1-1 draw with Chelsea would have been a fantastic result but after 90 minutes on Tuesday evening Reds fans were left thinking "what if?"
What if that free kick which wasn't a free kick wasn't actually given? What if we'd of beaten Swansea? What if Sadio Mane had of been around for a few extra games?

So, yesterday was perhaps one of the worst matches I have ever had the misfortune to watch as a Liverpool fan, a Liverpool fan who hails from Wolverhampton. For those of you not following my Twitter updates throughout the day, this post should give you an idea of how I was feeling from kick off to the final whistle.

Reds Miss Out On Wembley

A performance lacking any real dynamic or end product left Liverpool with no route to Wembley on Wednesday night as Southampton once again proved they deserved their place in the final.

A late winner from substitute Shane Long didn't tell the complete story of the match but Southampton undoubtably should get full credit for pushing Jurgen Klopp's team to one side.

Get in. Thank god we got past Plymouth, as a Liverpool fan from Wolverhampton I would have never heard the last of it. I was so desperate for us to win last night it was ridiculous, who'd of thought you could get as nervous for Plymouth away in an FA Cup replay as you did for the Champions League final?

The drinking began in earnest shortly after midday. You simply have to drink before Forest matches. It's a coping mechanism that has become commonplace.

By the time the fourth goal went in, about 5:45pm-ish, the whole thing seemed like a wishy-washy lagerscape daydream.

Us: Still no Cesc, and no Morata either. Big Willy would always have started I think tonight, and in front of him Conte had heeded Hazard's cry and gone all out. The Belgian started up front with Willian and Pesto (yawn, autospell), and behind them was much as we would have anticipated.
