The chief feature on Merseyside to-day is the meeting of Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield. The London side are determined to make a better show this term and so far they have played two home games, a win and a draw resulting.
Liverpool impressed in their game with Middlesbrough after their narrow defeat at Sheffield, the second half display at Anfield on Wednesday being of the best. On that form the Liverpool men ought to prevail to-day.
Done, the young Bootle player, has a chance to make a name for himself. He is to lead the home attack.
Liverpool: Dirk Kemp, Jim Harley, Bernard Ramsden, Matt Busby, Tom Bush, James McInnes, Berry Nieuwenhuys, Willie Fagan, Cyril Done, Jack Balmer, Herman Van den Berg.
Chelsea: Vic Woodley, George Barber, Jack Smith, Billy Mitchell, Bob Salmond, Sam Weaver, Dickie Spence, Jimmy Argue, Dai James, John Smith, Alf Hanson.
