    • - Thanks for joining us today... Liverpool go top of the table!
    • 90'+3 There it is! No time for any heroics! Liverpool end Chelsea's 86-game unbeaten run at home!
    • 90' Another change now for Liverpool... Hyypia for Riera as the visitors look to hold on to their lead.
    • 88' And Liverpool make a change as the clock runs down... Lucas for Kuyt.
    • 85' Chelsea make another desperate change... Sinclair on for Bosingwa....
    • 80' Time running out for Chelsea... but they're being roared on by the home crowd...
    • 78' Straight down to the other end and Babel lets rip with a sweet strike that flies inches wide of the post!
    • 77' Terry leaps with Reina for the corner... there's a foul on the keeper there... he reacts badly, accusing Terry of an elbow and the ref has to intervene.
    • 76' Belletti plays in Deco with a lovely through pass... the Portuguese cuts inside and lets fly! Deflected behind for a corner!
    • 75' A quarter of an hour to go, and Chelsea exemplary home record is under real threat...
    • 73' COLE! Best chance of the game falls to the Chelsea full-back as Lampard heads down to him in the box... but he slices his shot terrible and the ball flies well wide of the post! He may come to regret that miss...
    • 68' Bosingwa puts in a great cross looking for Anelka! But Agger and Reina do enough to repel the attack, the former looking quite shaken by the collision!
    • 66' Mascherano goes into the book for protesting too loudly following an Ashley Cole challenge...
    • 64' Oooh! Babel very nearly gets played in by Gerrard after a lovely flowing passing move!
    • 62' ALONSO OFF THE POST! Great free-kick as Cech is left wrong-footed once again! So close to a second!
    • 60' And now it's Liverpool's turn to make a change... Babel for Keane.
    • 59' Cole looks for a penalty as Kuyt appears to push him in the box! Not given!
    • 58' Chelsea make a double change now as they chase the game.... off go Kalou and Malouda... on come Di Santo and Belletti.
    • 57' Cole then allows Kuyt to shoot at goal... it's well wide from the Dutchman though...
    • 56' Cole now goes into the book for a petulant push on Carragher...
    • 55' Chelsea break... Anelka nods on for Malouda... he's in! HUGE PENALTY SHOUT as Reina brings the Frenchman down! Must be! No! The flag is up for offside! Malouda was off from the intial flick on!
    • 55' Aurelio steps up to take the resulting free kick... but the Brazilian leathers it way over the bar... poor.
    • 54' Yellow card for Malouda after the Chelsea man clashes with Riera... it's just a shoulder charge, but Howard Webb likes his cards...
    • 51' Gerrard fancies his chances from 25 yards here! Super block from his England buddy John Terry!
    • 48' It's not Alonso who takes it... he slips it to Gerrard who works it for Mascherano! But the Argentine's shot is weak and doesn't reach its intended target.
    • 48' Mikel leaves a leg in Riera and that'll be a free kick to Liverpool... chance for Alonso to deliver a decent ball into the box now.
    • 46' Back underway at the Bridge! No changes to tell you about at the break...
    • 45' One minute of added time to be played...
    • 42' Oh, a moment's hesistation between Cole and Carvalho nearly allows Keane in.... they sort out the misunderstanding soon enough though.
    • 41' Another corner to Chelsea now as Deco has another shot deflected behind for a corner!
    • 39' That's a terrible touch by Bosingwa... Gerrard capitalises by sliding in to win the ball... and Liverpool can break! No they can't! The referee blows up for a foul! And he books Gerrard! Not sure he deserved that one!
    • 37' Gerrard wants a free kick here... but he's not going to get it... Chelsea break with Deco! He takes it all the way to the edge of the Liverpool penalty area before letting off a shot! Just wide of Reina's right hand upright!
    • 34' Chelsea are beginning to get back into this now... Lampard fires off a shot from the edge of the box... blocked this time, but the hosts are back in the ascendancy!
    • 30' Half an hour gone and so far Liverpool will be happier with how things are turning out... but remember, Manchester United led here as well and they could only manage a draw by the time the final whistle sounded.
    • 29' The presence of Cole in the Liverpool box puts Kalou off his shot somewhat and Reina remains unfluttered.
    • 28' Deco wins a round of applause from the home fans for tracking back and winning the ball in his own half.
    • 26' Liverpool are on top here... Riera gets past his man on the left wing to deliver another cross into the box... Chelsea deal with it well enough, but they're letting the visitors get through too easily at the moment.
    • 24' Oooh! Gerrard lets fly from distance and Cech is forced to tip over the bar for a Liverpool corner!
    • 23' Oooh! Bosingwa delivers a great ball into the box... and Kalou manages to twist his body round to meet it, but his header flies over the bar!
    • 22' Riera is going to get the first booking of the day... that's a rather cynical challenge on Bosingwa as the Chelsea full-back burst down the wing.
    • 20' Deco tries to create something now... but the Chelsea man's cross is over everyone's heads in the box and Liverpool can clear their lines.
    • 18' Chelsea are looking a touch shaky at the back... the goal can take the blame for that.
    • 17' Problems for Chelsea again as Riera robs Bosingwa before bearing down on goal! But his shot hits the side netting, much to the displeasure of Gerrard, who was free in the box!
    • 16' And now Alonso slides in on Kalou! Another dangerous challenge in these conditions, but Howard Webb opts for a stern talking to, and not a card...
    • 15' Carragher slides in on Lampard... that's a clear foul, but the ref plays advantage as the ball falls kindly to Kalou! His shot is weak, and straight at Reina though.
    • 14' Lovely feet from Aurelio! The Brazilian very nearly finds his way through the Chelsea defence, but the return pass from Keane doesn't reach him...
    • 13' Riera looks to break away now... but that's a great sliding challenge from Carvalho! That's what a skiddy surface is made for!
    • 11' The perfect start for Liverpool! They'll be difficult to break down now...
    • 10' GOAL! LIVERPOOL TAKE THE LEAD! Amazing! Alonso swings a boot at the ball when it falls to him on the edge of the box... it takes a deflection off Bosingwa, wrongfooting Cech and bouncing into the back of the net!
    • 9' Anelka nods on for Kalou to chase... but the Ivorian can't make it and the ball runs out for a goal kick.
    • 7' Lampard tries a neat little stepover, leaving the ball for Deco, but the Portuguese can't make anything of it and Liverpool eventually win a free kick for offside.
    • 5' Nothing comes of the corner, but that's a good start from the hosts...
    • 4' Chelsea on the front foot now... Anelka runs at the middle of the Liverpool defence... he's stopped in his tracks, but the ball falls to Deco! Oooh! His shot is deflected behind for the first corner of the day!
    • 3' Mikel brings oohs and aahs from the crowd as he sprays a pass wide for Malouda... but it's overhit and the crowd soon suck those noises back in.
    • 2' Hopefully the rain might add to this game as a spectacle...
    • 1' Here we go! Underway at the Bridge!
    • - Here come the teams onto a rain-soaked Stamford Bridge pitch... it's been chucking it down all morning in London - great news for fans of sliding tackles.
    • - There's no miraculous return for Fernando Torres, but Robbie Keane is passed fit to start for Liverpool.
    • - So, Ashley Cole returns to the Chelsea side, but still no Didier Drogba, Michael Essien, Michael Ballack or Joe Cole.
    • - The man charged with keeping a lid on this one is Howard Webb.
    • - And Liverpool like this: Reina, Arbeloa, Carragher, Agger, Aurelio, Alonso, Mascherano, Kuyt, Gerrard, Riera, Keane. Subs: Cavalieri, Dossena, Hyypia, Benayoun, Pennant, Babel, Leiva Lucas
    • - The teams are in... Chelsea line up like this: Cech, Bosingwa, Carvalho, Terry, Ashley Cole, Mikel, Kalou, Deco, Lampard, Malouda, Anelka. Subs: Cudicini, Ivanovic, Di Santo, Sinclair, Ferreira, Alex, Belletti
