In the highlight fixture of the weekend, especially given the events during the week, Liverpool will travel to Stamford Bridge to face a Chelsea side who boast their ex-idol Fernando Torres.
An explosive tie as it is, Liverpool's £50m sale of Fernando Torres to Chelsea, after the player handed in a transfer request, has made this the most anticipated clash of the season so far. Liverpool feel let down and betrayed by the Spaniard, who they endeared with nicknames like 'Nando' and 'El Nino', and if the clash was to played at Anfield rather than Stamford Bridge, Torres would have been in for a rough game. In a show of remonstration against him, the Anfield faithful burned Torres replica jerseys outside Anfield after his move was announced. The 26-year old then announced that he had joined one of the top clubs in the World, thereby further angering the Reds.
