The Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt is “not worried” about facing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and after beating the Blues there last season, he is sure that Liverpool can repeat the feat again this season.
“Okay, Chelsea had an unbeaten record until last weekend, but I’m not really worried about them,” Kuyt said. “If we play to the level we’re capable of, we can win there again. We beat them home and away last season, so why not this year too?
“It’s always a difficult game at Stamford Bridge but I believe we showed something last season by winning there. By beating both Chelsea and Manchester United twice each in the league last term, we proved we can beat most teams home and away.”
“Chelsea have a group of players who have been together for a long time and with fantastic strikers such as Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka. But we know them well after playing against each other many times.”
“We know what we have to do. At this stage we’ve already lost twice, and that’s the same amount as the whole of last season in the league. We just have to worry about our own games for now. Chelsea is a big game but we just have to look at ourselves. It’s too early to talk about where the title is going, but if we beat Chelsea we’ll be right back in there.”
