Best Abramovich era victory over Liverpool


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Now that the Anfield game is out of the way I think this is a good time to choose our favourite victory over Liverpool. There's no doubt they've been a thorn in our side over the years and especially in the Abramovich era. But we have undoubtedly gotten the better of them over the years so pick your favourite:

Liverpool 1 Chelsea 2 (2003/04 Premier League)

We had played them in the last game of the season just gone and here we were facing them in our first game of the new season. But this Chelsea was a multi million pound proposition. New signing Veron have a Chelsea the lead but Michael Owen struck Liverpool level with a controversial penalty after his first attempt that missed was allowed to be retaken. Is ever Chelsea secured the win 3 mins from time with a superb goal from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0 (2004/05 Premier League)

Not much to say about this game other than a clever Joe Cole goal gave Chelsea a narrow win.

Liverpool 0 Chelsea 1 (2004/05 Premier League)

Again a Joe Cole goal gave Chelsea a narrow win.

Chelsea 3 Liverpool 2 (2004/05 League Cup Final)

Liverpool looked to have had the game won due to Riise's goal within the first minute however Liverpool Captain Steven Gerrard did Chelsea a late favour by scoring an own goal taking the game to extra time. Chelsea took a strangle hold on the game with goals from Didier Drogba and Majeta Kezman giving Chelsea the lead. Antonio Nunez's goal to make the score 3-2 was only a consolation and Chelsea won the first trophy of the Abramovich/Mourinho era.

Liverpool 1 Chelsea 4 (2005/06 Premier League)

Revenge was on hand for Chelsea after the ghost goal in the Champions League semi final the previous season. The build up to the game involved Liverpool going on about how they had the measure of Chelsea after a midweek 0-0 draw in the Champions League group stage (for some reason) however Chelsea and Didier Drogba had other ideas. Chelsea struck first from the penalty spot through Frank Lampard before Steven Gerrard equalised. Damien duff put Chelsea back infront just before halftime after Didier Drogba had turned Sammi Hypia neatly in the box setting him Duff up. Joe Cole and Geremi both scored tap ins through more great work from Drogba. Chelsea got the mist perfect revenge against a Liverpool team that were too big headed in the build up. My personal favourite.

Chelsea 2 Liverpool 0 (2005/06 Premier League)

Again in the build up Liverpool felt they had the measure of Chelsea (again for some unknown reason) and were about to claw back Chelsea's very healthy lead at the top. However Chelsea had other ideas, William Gallas struck in the first half to take a 1-0 lead into the second half. Hernan Crespo then scored a superb goal to give Chelsea the 2-0 win. The scoreline could have been much worse as Crespo had been incorrectly flagged for offside a four few tines. Pepe Reina was also sent off in the final moments of the game aswell to cap off a great night.

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0 (2006/07 Premier League)

Didier Drogba gave Chelsea the win with one of the greatest goals of his career, an unstoppable volley that he set up himself through a Frank Lampard pass. Even Michael Ballack's sending off did not stop the blues from taking all 3 points.

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0 (2006/07 Champions League Semi Final 1st Leg)

Although we went out in the second leg who can forget this great first leg. The Bridge was bouncing and Chelsea took the lead through a Joe Cole goal. Chelsea dominated but were unable to find a second goal, however it can not take away from this great victory.

Chelsea 2 Liverpool 0 (2007/08 League Cup)

It was a battle of two teams really utilising their squads, Chelsea were the far better of the two teams. Frank Lampard struck first in the second before Shevchenko killed any hopes of a late Liverpool comeback in the final minute of normal time.

Chelsea 3 Liverpool 1 (2007/08 Champions League Semi Final 2nd Leg)

It was third tine lucky in the battle of the semi finals with Liverpool. The first keg had not gone very well for Chelsea but fortunately Riise's late own goal meant Chelsea had the edge going into the second leg. In the build up to the game Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez made the mistake of ripping into Didier Drogba. Drogba struck first in the game going as far to celebrate infront if the Liverpool manager. Fernando Torres got Liverpool back in the game but it was undeserved, the game was now level and hit extra time. Michael Ballack was brought down to earn Chelsea a penalty that was slotted home by an emotional Frank Lampard who scored his first goal since the passing of his Mother. Didier Drogba scored seven minutes later and Ryan Babel pulled one back for the visitors to ensure a nervy finish. Chelsea were in their first ever Champions League Final.

Liverpool 1 Chelsea 3 (2008/09 Champions League Quarter Final 1st Leg)

Guus Hiddink's Chelsea travelled to a Liverpool side that were in superb form and that form looked like continuing when Chelsea bogey player Fernando Torres struck after 6 minutes. However Chelsea fought back through debutant Branislav Ivanovic scored with a header. Ivanovic scored again to make it 2 in the second half and Drogba made it 3 just 4 mins later. Chelsea dominated the game and probably should have won by more. This set up the epic second leg with a Liverpool team needing goals that ended 4-4.

Chelsea 2 Liverpool 0 (2009/10 Premier League)

Didier Drogba was again the man setting up both goals to give Chelsea a fantastic win. His first contribution was to set up Nicolas Anelka with a superb cross. His second was to completely decimate Jamie Carragher to set up Florent Malouda to wrap up the 3 pts.

Liverpool 0 Chelsea 2 (2009/10 Premier League)

Chelsea were neck and neck with Man Utd in the title race, only 1 point ahead and this was a game a United fans had hoped Chelsea would drop points in. That wasn't to be the case as Steven Gerrard did Chelsea another favour by passing the ball back to Didier Drogba who slotted home. Frank Lampard killed the game off with a second later on in a result that pleased the Liverpool fans aswell.

Liverpool 1 Chelsea 2 (2011/12 FA Cup Final)

Chelsea had not had much luck against Liverpool teams managed by Kenny Dalglish. This however was an exception. Ramires struck first for Chelsea giving the blues a deserved lead. The man for the big occasion Didier Drogba struck home a clever second aiming through Skrtel's legs. Andy Carroll pulled one back for Liverpool and even thought he'd equalised when his headed ball bounced on the line but what replays showed was a great save from Petr Cech. Chelsea were the winners of the FA Cup yet again.

Chelsea 2 Liverpool 1 (2013/14 Premier League)

Things weren't looking good when Martin Skrtel scored early on to give Liverpool the lead. However Chelsea did not let their heads go down and Eden Hazard struck a sub line goal to level the game. Samuel Eto'o gave Chelsea the lead pouncing on a great piece of play by Oscar. The two first half goals were enough to give Chelsea the deserved win.

Liverpool 0 Chelsea 2 (2013/14 Premier League)

The most recent game, a tactical master class by Mourinho. Chelsea counter balanced Liverpool's attacking strategy by soaking up pressure and waiting fir their opportunities. The first came in first half injury time as Gerrard's mis control and slip allowed Demba Ba to pounce. Liverpool tried everything against a Chelsea team that had made 8 changes but Chelsea woukd not let slip. In the final minutes Liverpool through all their players bar the goalkeeper into Chelsea's half, this allowed Fernando Torres to take the ball after Sturridge's mis control and play in Willian who cooly walked in Chelsea's second.

Champs League Semi final 2nd leg for me. Lamps' penalty under extreme emotional stress and us finally reaching our first Champs League final made it an unforgettable night.

The Didier Drogba Show in that 4-1 win is a good 2nd place though

This is tough there are so many for me but ive narrowed it down to 2. Its these 2 for me:

That wasn't to be the case as Steven Gerrard did Chelsea another favour by passing the ball back to Didier Drogba who slotted home.

Was it you who made the other thread about Arsenal? Good job, it's a good read, you should make more of these when you have the time.

 

I'll go with the 4-1 win, because I can remember this being the biggest defeat at Anfield for years.

 

Never want to kick out those CL games but the recent result can almost definitely be a close 2nd, that's if Liverpool don't win the league. Be sweat knowing it was us who ruined Steven Gerrards dream after all his annoying media darling antics.

I think both the 2-0s were very special. The earlier one handed us the league and this most recent one has put us back in it and probably stopped the scousers from winning it! But the 3-1 at their place in the Champions League was also very special. Ivan with that headed goal!

My favorite was the 1-1 Draw in the 07/08 UCL. Our Super striker John Arne Riise scored deep into added time as Chelsea came back to hold Liverpool at Anfield :Troll_Face: I know it wasn't a win but I laughed so hard as the anfield faithful were silenced by the great strike of Riise

Liverpool+v+Chelsea+UEFA+Champions+Leagu

 

That goal gave CFC the vital away goal & enable the Blues to march on to Moscow. However that match got postponed & we shall never speak about that match again.

Yes it was my friend, I also did the Man U one aswell.

I would love to do more, they're a twat to write up though ha ha. I go a lot from memory but occasionally I have to find the old match reports to remember a goal or two. I want to do more PL era ones outside of the Abramovich era but the Abramovich era ones gives me a good start to end point and it's abit easier to remember it all with it been in the last decade. I'm gonba do a Spurs one soon but there's gonna be that many games I might have to split the first post into two lol

The Ivanovic double was awesome, as was the Gerrard own goal in the 2005 LC final.

 

But honestly I think our win on the weekend was the most satisfying. Never before have we had the pleasure of beating them when they have been so far up their own asses.

I don't know, they were mouthing off so much before we hammered them 4-1 at Anfield saying they had the measure of us and we played better in that game. I think that was just as sweet.

3-1 with Brana's double.

The 4-4 was the most entertaining and the one that took most off of my life expectancy that a football match is able to.

 

I agree with both of these, I think the 3-1 was my favourite too. I had spent several weeks being told by everyone around me that Liverpool were going to do us, obviously I disagreed but the vindication I felt after kicking ten shades of sh*t out of them at Anfield was brilliant. I suppose it's not all that different from Sunday's game, but the prospect of winning our first Champions League trophy was just too exciting.

 

After the 4-4 I was completely drenched in sweat, there were 20 people in the room (out of which I was the only person supporting Chelsea) but it wasn't even that hot. What a f**king game that was - absolutely ridiculous from start to finish, I can still remember the hissy fit I had after they were awarded their penalty (I think it was Alonso - I was adamant that he had played the ball before he was fouled) even now.

Unfortunately I didn't see the 1-3 CL game as it was on sky and pre-streaming days.  But I remember the return leg as being the most nerve-wracking ever!  The realisation that while 1-3 was a brilliant result, to lose from there would have been unbearable.   The half hour or hour before kick off I felt sick with nerves and I remember pacing round and round the kitchen when they were awarded their penalty.  Brilliant match - especially for the neutral but agonisingly nervous for a fan!
