TAO – Video: Benayoun winner for Liverpool against Fulham

With Liverpool set to face Fulham at Craven Cottage in the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday night, we look back on some of the more memorable clashes between the two sides.In April 2009 the Reds headed to west London with title ambitions, sitting just one point behind leaders and eventual winners Manchester United.A frustrating day in the capital saw Andrea Dossena hit the bar twice, with both Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres also both denied by the wood work.It looked as though Liverpool were only going to get one point out of the game, but Yossi Benayoun found himself in space on the right hand side of the box, firing home in the 92nd minute to give the Reds the win.The win put Liverpool two points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

METRO – Chelsea turn to Loic Remy after Andre Schurrle talks collapse

Chelsea have opened talks with Marseille over a deal for Loic Remy after missing out on Andre Schurrle. Loic the look of you: Marseille’s French forward Remy (Picture: AFP/GettyImages The news comes after Roberto Di Matteo was promised extra funds by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to make a last dip into the transfer market, with a striker his key priority. And Di Matteo wasted no time in trying to bring one in – opening talks with Bayer Leverkusen for their 21-year-old forward Schurrle this morning. However, despite a round of positive talks with the German club, Chelsea – who failed with a £17 million bid for Schurrle earlier in the summer – could not agree terms and have broken off talks. That has promoted Di Matteo to look elsewhere, and it now understood that the club are in talks with Marseille over a move for French forward Remy. L’OM have already told interested parties, that include Tottenham and Manchester City, that Remy won’t be sold for less than £15 million, but Chelsea believe they can get him for around £10 million. If the Blues can do the deal, want-away England hitman Daniel Sturridge will be allowed to move to Liverpool, after they opened talks over a transfer this afternoon. Elsewhere, Chelsea are also willing to listen to offers for wingers Yossi Benayoun and Florent Malouda, while a decision is yet to be reached as to whether Michael Essien can join Arsenal on-loan.
