In the EPL, all focus will be on Sunday’s super match between Chelsea and Liverpoool. The Blues who only a few weeks ago lost 5-3 to Arsenal at the bridge, will be looking to avenge their humiliating home loss.
Good news for All Chelsea fans is that talismanic striker Didier Drogba has resumed full training ahead of the fixture and is expected to feature at some point in the match.
The match will also be a re-union of sorts for former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres. Torres has struggled to replicate his form Chelsea since his £50 million move in January and many believe there would be no better time for him to kill the rumours than on Sunday.
In fact, the Spain international who has been labelled a traitor for leaving Liverpool created controversy ahead of Sunday’s game by saying that Liverpool fans did not know the real reason why he left the club.
Speaking to Marca, Torres admitted that he was expecting abuse from Liverpool fans.
“I’ve no doubt [the abuse] will be a lot worse,” Torres said.
“The Liverpool fans have only paid attention to what the club made them see and they don’t know the true story of my transfer to Chelsea.
“That’s why I don’t hold any grudges; they will always be special to me.”
That was brief snapshot at some of the big games going down this weekend. Hope you get time to watch some as you enjoy your weekend.
