MOTD halftime- Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

Rafa Bentiz’s side is leading at Anfield, with The Reds needing to turn things around if they are to make a comeback.  Liverpool started the match brightly, and Brenden Rodgers side almost took the lead only five minuted into the half when Jordan Henderson played the ball to Luis Suarez, who turned with the ball before threading a pass through the Chelsea defense to Glen Johnson.  Johnson was one on one with Cech, but instead of rounding the keeper Johnson poked the ball wide.  Chelsea felt their way into the match, and slowly started to dominate the match.  Eden Hazard laid the ball of to Ramires in the twentieth minute, and the Brazilians dipping shot from twenty-five yards out swerved right in front of Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina, forcing the Spaniard to awkwardly punch the ball away.

The Blues continued to pressure, and took the lead in the twenty-seventh minute off a corner.  Juan Mata curled the ball to the near post, and Oscar peeled off of Daniel Agger, before heading past Reina inside the near post into the back of the net.  Two minutes later Chelsea almost doubled their lead when Henderson brought down Ramires thirty-five yards out from goal.  Luiz stepped up to take the kick, and Renia dropped the Brazilians dipping effort, but managed to catch it just before it it cross the line.  Liverpool started to find their way back into the match, and Stewart Downing ran into the box from the right before slipping a ball to the run of Suarez, but Cech palmed the Uruguayan’s first time shot away.  Liverpool will need to turn things around if they are to take all three points, and the second half is sure to be exciting, so look out for my full time review, right here on Football Every Day!
