The pace of Ronny Rosenthal and the creativity of John Barnes was the plan from Graeme Souness to punish Chelsea as the two sides were set to meet at the Stamford Bridge. While the goals had stopped flowing at one end, they had also dried up on the attacking end for the Reds and the Liverpool manager was coming up with creative solutions to resolve the issue.
Chelsea, on the other hand, were on a slump at the time. Ian Porterfield’s men had failed to win in 10 games which had six defeats in them. This terrible run meant they were out of Coca Cola and FA cup as well as out of the top six in the premier league as well.
