Here we go, the big one, it’s arrived. A few hours to kick off and the atmosphere is building around Anfield and around the world. It’s the Champions League semi final second leg at Anfield against Chelsea.


The first goal is sure to be crucial with Chelsea taking a 1-0 lead from the first leg, but the Anfield crowd are expected to play their part and provide the setting for the high tempo start Rafa Benitez’s team is set to adopt.

Rumours of team selections have been flying around, some claim Jermaine Pennant will start left wing, some say there’ll be a surprise 3-5-2 thrown up, others say Gerrard will take a free role behind Crouch and Kuyt. Whichever, the team will be ready and prepared by Benitez.

The pressure is on Chelsea as their season threatens to end in a damp squid after all the talk of quadruple’s, the title seemingly gone and defeat tonight would surely mean the end of Mourinho this summer.
