The Kop will roar on Tuesday night when Chelsea enter the lion's den in possibly the most atmospheric stadium in the world. A score draw, or win will put us through. A win for Liverpool and they go through, with a 0-0 draw taking this bout into extra time.
Key Man - Steven Gerrard
Possibly, and in my opinion the midfielder with the most ability on the planet. So strong, quick and a great eye for goal. A super box to box player like Lampard. I'd stick Maka on him as Biscan or Hamann aren't going to threaten from the middle. If we can subdue him we can use Robben, Duff, Cole and Lamps for the counters. He has been linked with us all season, and even scored a goal which won us the Carling Cup.. however he is Liverpool through and through and their el capitan so he wll give it his all.
This guy can be so crap it's unbelivable. In my opinion, if Duff and Robben play we can roast the life out of him. He can also make very bad mistakes (Burnley see below). However to be fair he can do well and saved Liverpool a few times, but still he can be their weak link due to his lack of footballing ability.
Lampard VS Gerrard
The battle of the two England midfielders, and the two best all round box to box players in the world. Lamps has been on fire recently, and picked up two against Bolton to secure us the championship on saturday. Lamps has also been the better play this season. The advantage we have is that Gerrard will be without his new partner Xabi Alonso, so an unfit Hamann or Biscan will come into the centre.. we have Maka so hopefully Maka can do that destructive role which he did so well in the 1st leg. The person who can get past the midfield circle the most will win this battle and possibly the tie.
Come on CHELSEA!
