The first half was chaotic. A momentary lapse allowing Torres in for the first, and a second lapse later on in the half to allow the Spaniard to secure the points.
There are some players who love scoring against Chelsea, Torres is one of them. And Tevez is another. It is quite fair to say that our losses this season have been down to particularly strong performances by both of those players.
Liverpool were worthy of the three points though, and that really pains me to say it. I don't have deference towards any other team in the League any where near Liverpool - they have caused the Chelsea fans far too much heartache in our recent history.
Yes, history - something Liverpool fans are reluctant to credit us with. Something we are making on an annual basis. In 20 years time we'll be thankful for the three Premier League trophies we have lifted, something the Red contingent of Merseyside cannot say at this current time.
You always know things aren't going well when Lucas Leiva pulls out his one good performance in a red shirt. He showed what Chelsea didn't for large periods of the game, hunger and desire for the ball.
As has been a regular occurrence this season I have nothing but praise for Mikel. Once again he is making me eat my words and shown us that he is really fit to wear the shirt.
I have a hunch that this could be down to an extra freedom - and responsibility - allowed to him by the departure of Michael Ballack. This isn't making excuses for my previous stance, as I still stand by it, but it is a credit to him that he has worked on his game to make him a first XI player.
Now where do I start when picking holes in the first half performance.
My new target has to be Ramires. Yes he is new, and yes he needs time to learn and adapt to the game. But in my eyes it was less like watching Brazil and more like watching a Brazilian wax - painful. I was almost pulling my own hair out watching his scooped passes go to nobody, his dawdling when in possession and the ease with which he is barged off the ball.
But there is no doubt in my mind that he will adapt. His second half performance showed us that there is a glimmer of hope in there. When a pass does go right, and from distance, he can be a real menace. Some of his spreading of balls across the pitch were sublime. Just not enough. Yet.
As for Kalou? He looked about as dangerous as what was keeping Drogba on the bench. That was until we found out that Drogba has been harbouring malaria, and that in fact is actually quite dangerous!
Kalou was more like a sniffle. Something I have commented on before. With Kalou in the side we don't worry defenders as much. He doesn't have pitch presence. He does have bundles of ability and running - but for a player who really has a place to fight for he shows so little so often.
Anelka wasn't much better, but its difficult to criticise a player who has been superb in the two games prior. Against Spartak Moscow he showed that he isn't just a lazy striker who only plays for himself, as so often has been attributed to him. At Chelsea he has learned how to play for the team. The guy is a pleasure to watch.
The defending on Sunday can't be overly condemned. Terry had a fantastic match, and showed a lot of the desire that was needed to get back into the game. He wasn't fantastic for the first goal, but cannot be tarnished with the same brush for the second. It isn't Terry's fault we lost against Liverpool, it was just one of those days.
Extra mention should also go to Cole and Malouda who once again were very good. Malouda was the only threat we posed in the first half, and in the second he so nearly scored to bring us back into it.
I was also going to complain about Drogba's lack of input when he came off the bench, but now knowing that he had malaria he should be praised rather than put down. At least he came on and gave it a go.
In summary, it is just one of those things. We were heading for a fall at some point soon, I think we all just wish it was against somebody else. Liverpool were on the back of a couple of good results, and Torres was on the back of some ridiculous criticism. Let's just hope that the rumours are true and we are looking at snapping him up to bolster our ageing attack.
Although it is no doubt gutting to have lost the three points we have two difficult games against physical teams coming up, grabbing all six would be a great way to show the press - and the rest of the country - that we are here to stay.
Still top. Still top scorers. Still Champions.
Keep the Blue Flag Flying High.
