They won't play the same way as they did aagainst Man Utd because Chelsea & LFC are very similar in styles so it'll be a case of who wants it more on Wednesday !!
I think the crucial thing is that we must score. I don't know if Rafa will be content to play our normal game, let them come on and look for the counter, or he will send them out with a more attacking brief. As usual the first goal will be important, as if it goes Chelsea's way, we are in trouble. Will Essien be back for that match? He is looking strong, and could tie our midfield up a bit more than the first leg. To my shame, I was really hoping some Chelsea players picked up a 'knock' today, I know it is wrong, but I really want to get another final. I think Barca might turn Man Utd over you know!

If Chelsea score the first goal, you have to score to stay in the match. If Chelsea don't score, you still have to score to stay in the match. Chelsea scoring a goal makes less difference than Liverpool scoring.
