Fernando Torres clockwatch

2 minutes: Chelsea's new £50m man latches onto a stray pass from Maxi Rodriguez and drives towards the Liverpool penalty area, but bends a shot high over the bar.



  • 10: The Spain World Cup winner tries to shield the ball and turn towards goal, but his touch is poor -- much to the amusement of the Liverpool fans.
  • 25: Torres is barged over by Daniel Agger out on the right, but referee Andre Marriner takes no action.
  • 30: Jamie Carragher makes a saving block as Torres looks to slip Chelsea ahead from close range after being played into the right of the area by Didier Drogba.
  • 35: After a break down the right, Torres looks to cut the ball into the centre -- but instead rolls his pass back into the Chelsea half as again the travelling support revel in the misfortune of the former Kop idol.
  • 65: Following an unproductive second half, Torres is replaced by Salomon Kalou -- with Liverpool fans jeering "you should have stayed at a big club" as the Spaniard takes his place on the Chelsea bench.
