Cole the King as Chelsea Take the Upper Hand Against Liverpool
Joe Cole capped a fine return to action with the solitary goal in the 29th minute to give Chelsea a slight advantage against arch-rivals Liverpool in the battle for a place in the Champions League Final. Chelsea had the better chances, with Frank Lampard coming close, only to be denied by Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina. For Liverpool, Steven Gerrard came closest with a flashing volley that was somehow stopped by Chelsea’s talisman keeper, Petr Cech. Although the game promised much, in the end the teams were divided only by the goal as the pressure and intensity of the game took its toll on tired and weary legs.
The game was special for footy boot fans for the premier of the Nike T90 Laser football boot, worn by Chelsea’s Claude Makélélé. The Nike football boot was due to be worn by Wayne Rooney, but it appears the Chelsea man beat him to the limelight on this occasion. Bravo Claude!
