Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has dismissed Chelsea's advantage of playing tonight's Champions League semifinal first-leg at Anfield.

Gerro roared: "A lot is being made of the fact that we've got to go down there and play the second leg. It's suggested that it gives them a big advantage.

"But Stamford Bridge has nothing like the aura about it that Anfield does and it certainly won't intimidate us in the slightest. If we have to go there to finish the job then we will."
