The Big 7 League - Chelsea Bottom

For those who believe the league title and top four are determined by how we get on against our major rivals here is the Top 7 table produced by bass playing Andrew Beasley.

The big seven mini league makes pretty good reading for Liverpool, not least s they've played all 6 aways.


As you can see this is our 6th game against the traditional top 7 and our third away game after 14 rounds of fixtures. Stamford Bridge is not a place we have had much joy over the last 10 or more years, but then we were saying the same about Old Trafford and we have won there several times now. 

We have taken a point there in 2012 (0-0) and 2013 (2-2), we then go back to 2008 (1-1) for a point, 2004 (0-0), 2003 (1-1), 1995 (0-0) and (1-1), 1993 (1-1). On 10th February 1990 Gary Lineker and David Howells scored in a 2-1 victory, the last time we have taken three points from Stamford Bridge.

The barrier, once broken, is easier to break again. Subconsciously you are not longer hoping for a win because you know it is possible, you have already done it. prior to that though there is always self-doubt of some degree, it's why clubs like to build a fortress at home and why players will talk about it to reinforce it when they can, Alderweireld has recently about White Hart Lane.

This weekend would be a good time to break that barrier.
