Liverpool 1, Chelsea 0 (aggr. 1-0)

Never mind the payroll disparity, Liverpool are 33 points behind Chelsea in the Premiership. Liverpool lost to Crystal Palace last week. And despite all of this, it is Jose Mourinho’s side who will be watching the Champions League final on TV.

If there’s nothing else good on the box, that is.

Reports that Roman Abramovich has ordered the call up of Robison Cano are entirely unfounded.

The 2nd leg of the PSV / AC Milan semi-final will be shown later today on Setanta Sports US’ new satellite channel at 2pm.
