Spanish striker Fernando Torres scored twice to beat the defending champions for its third straight victory in the League. By this win Liverpool climbed to ninth as Chelsea leads table followed by Manchester United.
Torres rediscovered his scoring touch with two impressive goals at 11th and 43rd minutes. Chelsea attack, without Didier Drogba, in the first half was not so impressive to test Liverpool defence.
In the second half, Chelsea fought back with Drogba and Anelka in the front to get equalizers, but failed to test Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina. The early goal advantages helped Liverpool.
"We weren't good enough at the start of the season. But we thought from the beginning we needed time to work with a new manager and new players. We have to keep winning," said Torres after the match.
