Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool: The Non Event - That Gerrard Ovation!

With the title wrapped up and our season done and dusted, I still wanted us to beat Liverpool on Sunday but with Chelsea's below par performance in addition to Liverpool playing well, it wasn't to be.

Plenty of players weren't at their best and some people will argue that the four days off previously wouldn't have helped but I beg to differ. If we had played at our normal tempo, if the likes of Loic Remy and Eden Hazard were on form, we could have presented Liverpool with far more problems.

As for Liverpool, I thought they played well second half and presented us with more problems that we did to them. Once again Courtois was called into action and but for a lack of concentration late in first half, I couldn't see Liverpool breaking us down.

There were some positives from the game however. Ruben Loftus-Cheek played well and showed a level of maturity in a big game like that. He was calm and composed on the ball and it was good to see.

John Terry became the highest scoring defender in the Premier League ever with the opening goal early on. He managed to find space in the box as he always does and headed the ball down into the net to had made it 1-0 before Gerrard scored the equaliser late in the first half.

Apart from the goals, it was a non event really wasn't it!

One thing that did happen in the game that has most people talking with a divided opinion was the ovation from the Chelsea fans to Steven Gerrard as he left the pitch. After hammering him all game with usual songs, I personally felt it was hypocritical really. I respect him as a footballer but not as a person. He only stayed at Liverpool because his family had received death threats and we all remember the images of their fans burning his shirt outside the training ground.

Rather than accept the ovation, he still had to have his dig at us and I guess it was to be expected. He can dig as much as he likes but we have won FOUR Premier Leagues - how much has he won.

I wouldn't have given him the ovation.
