Chelsea continued their impressive record under new boss Rafael Benitez with a 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park , old timer Frank Lampard with both goals proving how important he can be to Chelsea ...it looks though as if he will be cast aside when the january transfer windows opens ..
QPR were comfortably swept aside 3-0 by Liverpool and the matches dont get any easier for Harry Redknapp .....rock bottom of the Premier League and facing a Chelsea side in form ...is there still hope for QPR ...Harry Redknapp seems to think so ...he said after the Liverpool match .."i still think we will be allright ..i faced worse at Portsmouth" .
they won't fail to score in this one that i can guarantee. The only zero QPR have to worry about is how many there is after the first digit. They are in shocking shape right now and CHelsea are on the hunt with a bit more cohesion in team chemistry gained each game. If Chelsea put out the team that doesn't have Lampard in it with Mata, Hazard, Oscar ,Ramires i the mid field then all hell will break loose. Too much speed of thought ,too much speed of technique for a midfield that is trash without Taraabt and he doesn't tackle.
What a dog of a result for Chelsea - if there was a banker game this week, surely it was this one. I watched an entertaining Newcastle vs Everton match, so I'm looking forward to the highlights to see how this happened!
Liverpool spent alot of our seasons beating the top clubs just to make up for the points we lost against weaker, promoted sides. "small clubs" as Rafa would call them.
A midfield of Marin who has been injured alot of the season, hasn't had any chance to settle, Lampard who's future is uncertain and an average player from Wigan and David Luiz who hasn't been in midfield that long. No wonder they had problems getting goals from Torres.
Who would have guessed this result?
I'll tell you what that first half had to be the worst half of football i ever witnessed base don the talent on the pitch .
Just when the fans looked to be warming to Rafa ,he turns out this nugget of a performance.
I'd like to say i'm happy for Redknapp ,but i'm not ,i am happy however for Taarabt who was the best player on the pitch in this game. A notch under his belt in his development ,he made that chelsea mid field look like boys ,they just couldn't get the ball off of him and some of the stuff he does is absolutely unimaginable. to be quite honest. A player like that needs the right amount of freedom of expression ,but yet someone who can get in his ear to level him out . It wouldn't surprise me if Man city jumped at that by after this performance . I did hear that Barca were sniffing about after a recent game ,so if true this game should have sealed the deal for them. Personally i think he moves a little to slow for Barca or that was the excuse some used for Hleb when he didn't get playing time ,so if they do go for him we'll see that they are talking absolute crap.
Anyway another shock result form the worlds best league ,bottom dwellers beating the team that beat beat Barca and Bayern to win the champions league last year.
