One of the highlights for me in yesterdays game against Chelsea was when Daniel Agger gave Torres an elbow when the Chelsea striker tried to run past the defender. Coming into the game, I was looking forward to seeing the tackles that Liverpool players would give to Torres. When I saw that Carragher was starting the game, I thought that either him or Gerrard would be the players to put in a big hit on Torres as they are the local lads and in essence, Torres dissed Liverpool by saying Chelsea is a bigger club.
But judging from Agger’s action, it seems that it is not only the local lads who were willing to ‘stick it’ into Torres. That however was the only bit of ‘bad blood’ shown against Torres yesterday. I did not expect any of our players not to shake Fernando’s hand before the game and I was glad to see that they all did, and a few smiles were exchanged with some of the lads.
