Liverpool v Chelsea 2-0 (League match: April 19, 1965)

April 19, 1965
Key note: “Anfield’s famous Kop choir created a new chant for the occasion – ‘Ey-aye-addio, Chelsea’s lost the League.’ A too-premature prophecy maybe, but it was Chelsea’s own pathetic performance that gave it a ring of bitter truth – a performance that saw them taunted from the terraces and treated with casual contempt on the field. This was not the inept, casual Liverpool slammed 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Good Friday. No playing with eyes more on next month’s Cup Final. In fact, it was the distant view of Wembley’s twin towers that inspired the two men who dealt Chelsea’s hopes such blow. Phil Chisnall – ex-Manchester United – and Geoff Strong, who both scored in the first half, are rated as reserves right now. But injuries could still mean a place for them in the Final line-up.” (Daily Mirror: April 20, 1965)
