There have been mixed emotions among Liverpool supporters in the Transfer Tavern in recent days after they saw their side draw 1-1 at home to Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday, a result which took their unbeaten run to six games, but at the same time saw them drop out of the division’s top four.
