Chelsea & Liverpool looking good to challenge title

The comeback king
Istanbul comeback might be the greatest ever comeback, but can anyone recall when did Liverpool perform a league comeback? Maybe not quite... In the past few years in the league, they found it very hard to comeback even they were only 1 goal down. However, this time around, they have been the comeback king this season where they have came back from behind to win games on 4 occasions already! 1 down against champions Man U, 1 down with less than 10 min against Boro, 2 down against Man City, and twice fell behind against Wigan. They have performed comebacks in all different ways this season. The next one - comeback at the holy ground- Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea looks unstoppable
Meanwhile, despite missing some of the key players through injuries, Chelsea showed their magnificent form as they thrashed Boro 5-0 in style. They now remain at the top of the table with superior goal difference. Their gameplay was very well organised and they are dominating games for fun at the moment. A brace from Kalou, Lampard , Malouda and an absolute screamer from Juliano Belleti from more than 30 yards out complete the 5 goals thrashing against Boro.

The top 2 battle- 26 October
Next week, we will see the current leader Chelsea taking on their fierce rival Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool will stand a chance to end Chelsea's long unbeaten home record based on thier current form and strong character, but they are likely to do it without their top striker - Fernando Torres. Chelsea, on the other hand, will be looking forward to extend their unbeaten run and to eliminate their opponent.
