Luis Suarez dealt a huge double blow to Chelsea's
Premier League title hopes today after inadvertently ending John Terry's
comeback and snatching a deserved draw for Liverpool
at Stamford Bridge.
Terry looked set to enjoy a dream return to action after his domestic
four-match racism ban when he powered the European champions ahead from a
corner at Stamford Bridge.
But the Blues captain then collided accidentally with the man at the centre of
football's other race scandal, forcing him off on a stretcher, with Suarez
going on to equalise for Liverpool and almost steal victory.
The draw prevented Chelsea from climbing back into second place as they
recorded their third league game without a win to lie three points behind
The home support may have turned up expecting another Stamford Bridge
goal-fest, having witnessed 30 in the previous five games here.
