Reds Midfield returns from AWOL.
In front of their home fans Liverpool put in their best performance of the season to lift some of the gloom surrounding the Merseyside club and hint at better things to come next season.
It looks like finally some of the big money players are beginning to find their feet and start justifying some if not all of their price tags.
From the start of the game Liverpool continued where they left off in the Cup Final and once again Andy Carroll put in a man of the match performance beasting John Terry and genuinely staking a claim for the Euro's.
On this form you would not want to leave him out.
Could it be that the Reds have finally reached the bottom of the Luck well?
With fifteen minutes gone and against the run of play Chelsea forced a corner from which an unmarked Ivanovic managed to head against the post.
This was the turning point of the game.
If Chelsea had scored here old doubts would have resurfaced and Liverpool's frail confidence would have been sorely tested.
As it was the miss seemed to give the red shirts belief. Finally they were getting a slice of fortune so badly needed.
From there they tore an admittedly understrength Chelsea team to shreds. Although it is doubtful whether the full complement of first teamers' would have managed to contain some of the superb attacking football that Liverpool played last night.
Suarez easily nutmegged and beat Terry, with Essien putting through his own net when the cross was drilled across.
A John Terry slip let Henderson in for a clear run on goal and he showed composure to fade the ball around the keeper and Carroll set up Agger for a nod in from the six yard line.
The best goal of the night came from an inspired performance from Jonjo Shelvey who fielded a miss placed pass from the Chelsea keeper and from fully thirty yards out drilled the ball into the back of the net.
Torres thrashed a shot against the bar but other than that endured chants of "Chelsea Rent Boy, Chelsea Rent boy" and was closed down maniacally every time he got near the ball.
"You Shall Not Pass".
And still Liverpool managed to miss a penalty – Downing crashing against the foot of the post with the keeper diving the other way and then Downing hit the woodwork again with a dipping volley that smacked the bar from twenty five yards.
Liverpool fully deserved their win and the quality and style of football was there for all to see.
Dalglish will argue that this type of performance has been present all season but that lady luck has deserted them. Will the American owners see it that way?
