Kalou: Chelsea targeted Liverpool makeshift fullbacks

Salomon Kalou admits Chelsea's tactics were to attack Liverpool's makeshift fullbacks for Sunday's win.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez chose to field Javier Mascherano and Dan Agger in the fullback positions and Kalou admits Chelsea thought it would be a weak spot.

He told chelseafc.com: "Get wide, receive the ball and attack the full backs, that was the game plan and it possibly gives the opportunity to other players to get in the box and score goals, players like Lampsy and Malouda. It is something that we are doing for the team. I am being asked to play wide and stretch the game more. It is different from earlier in the season."
