Liverpool: Borini Penalty Stuns Chelsea

Liverpool: Borini Penalty Stuns Chelsea

Three days after taking points off Manchester City, Sunderland have done Liverpool another massive favour...

A controversial 82nd minute penalty, ironically converted by on-loan Liverpool forward Fabio Borini, has condemned title chasing Chelsea to a shock home defeat this evening.

The Blues would have gone to the top of the Premier League with a victory but instead suffered a first ever loss at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho.

Despite their heroics, Sunderland, who also cost third-placed Manchester City points in midweek, stay bottom but they do move within three points of safety.

The Black Cats fell behind to an early Samuel Eto'o goal but equalised in the 18th minute courtesy of Wednesday night's hero Connor Wickham.

Chelsea remain two points behind Liverpool but have now played a game more. City are a further four back.

The Merseysiders are in action at Norwich City on Sunday and know they can take a massive step towards a first championship since 1990.

Brendan Rodgers' men play Chelsea at Anfield next weekend.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Borini. He's a decent player and a favourite of Rodgers but injury ruined his first season at Anfield. Had some impressive games on-loan this year and we will need a bigger squad because of Champions League next term so he will most likely be retained. Hopefully we can at least repay the favour and beat Norwich today!

As you say Bagman we need a bigger squad next season, and I can see us keeping some of the loanees at the club next season. I think we'll keep Borini, Suso and Llori. With potentially getting rid of Assaidi, Coates and Coady.

Totally agree with those names. I also think Ibe is good enough to get further game time next season although a lot will depend on who we sign.
