The physical presence of Drogba was missed against Liverpool's defensive partnership of Jamie Carragher and Daniel Agger, who dealt with everything that was thrown at them with great courage and authority. The fact that Chelsea were pumping long balls into the box in the first place, though, was a sign that the home team had run out of ideas. That was a tribute to a Liverpool side who provided the perfect away performance, full of poise and assurance, rock solid at the back, dangerous on the break and underpinned by a formidable amount of hard work. Chelsea will move back into the mix when they start to get their injured players back but they may still find it hard to dislodge Liverpool from the Premier League summit.
