Liverpool finally wins

25 Oct

Liverpool snapped a seven-game winless streak on Sunday, defeating Blackburn, 2-1.  Who scored the winner? None other than Mr. Fernando Torres.  The last goal for Torres came in the team’s last Premier League win, a 1-0 victory over West Brom Aug. 29.  Joe Cole, who has been MIA in pretty much every contest, actually decided to show up and notched the assist on Torres’ winner.

The team finally put together a solid performance and ,what a concept, played with confidence.  This is the kind of football they are capable of playing.   Torres desperately needed to score and hopefully, that strike will give him the boost he needs to get back to the top form he is capable of.  The Reds still sit in 18th, but are only three points out of seventh, and if they can continue to build on what they did Sunday, they are more than capable of climbing up the table.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the table, Chelsea still holds a five point lead at the top, while Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City all sit at 17 points.  Arsenal was greatly helped by its 3-0 win over 10-man Manchester City.
