Confirmed:New Liverpool Manager

Wigan have given Liverpool permission to speak with boss Roberto Martinez about the managerial post at Anfield, Latics owner Dave Whelan has confirmed.

"I gave Liverpool permission and he will be talking to them soon," Whelan told Sky Sports News.

"I have always said when a big club comes, I will give permission and they don't come any bigger than Liverpool.

"He has been a fantastic, superb manager [for Wigan]. He will be a difficult act to follow."

Whelan said he hoped Martinez would choose to stay at the DW Stadium but understands the Spaniard's popularity.

"I don't know Roberto's feelings about Liverpool. He will be going with an open mind. I'd love to keep Roberto.

"Unfortunately in this day and age of football there are two or three clubs without managers and Roberto is on the list of every one of them.

"When Liverpool sacked Kenny I did think they would be knocking on the door. If Liverpool are serious then I may lose him."

Liverpool Vs Chelsea [Match Summary]

After the fantastic display at Standord Bridge, Dalglish said: "If you have a fantastic performance you've got a better chance of getting a result and I think that's what we did."
The 2-1 win over Chelsea was with far more ambitious performance than what they did at Stamford Bridge last season.Glen Johnson(know more about Glen Johnshon) sensational solo goal to seal a win extended Dalglish’s remarkable unbeaten record against Chelsea in his two spells as Reds manager.
Liverpool repeatedly attacked Chelsea with forward players such as Craig Bellamy, Luis Suárez, Dirk Kuyt and Maxi Rodríguez.Maxi Rodriguez scored his first league goal this season in his first appearance for this season.Charlie Adam pressed and dispossed John Obi Mikel which directly led to the Merseyside club’s opening goal by Maxi.
Charlie Adam performed well to prove his worth and find his role in Liverpool. He attempted 53 passes, two clearance, two interceptions and won five of his eight challeges.It was him who assisted for the final winning goal from Johnshon.

Chelsea has lost three of its last four league games.Goal keeper Peter Cech conceded two goal with only three shots on target.Center Back DavidLuiz continued to show his poor tackling, Drogba was not efficient is strike and on-form players like Mata and Sturridge could not play much centrally.In a nutshell, it was a poor defence that caused Chelsea's fall.
Liverpool’s players wore black armbands following the death of goalkeeper Brad Jones’ young son from leukaemia on Friday.
Dalglish said: “That’s when football becomes irrelevant, really, when a five-year-old kid dies.
“We all dread to think what the boy’s gone through. He knows everyone at the club is thinking of him and are sympathetic with him.”
For liverpool they must treat every game as is if they were facing their top four rivals.

The Welsh international had previously fulfilled a boyhood dream when he left Blackburn Rovers for Merseyside for the first time back in 2006 - and despite just one season in L4, he played his part in some dramatic victories.
The diminutive striker hit nine goals in 42 games, including a header in a 2-1 Champions League success over Barcelona in February 2007. He scored one and set up another for John Arne Riise as the Reds beat the reigning European champions in their own backyard.
He netted a debut strike at the Kop end against Maccabi Haifa and was also on target against his former club Blackburn.
His pace and work-rate were to prove valuable assets during the campaign as Liverpool reached another Champions League final, although he was an unused substitute during the 2-1 loss to AC Milan.
Bellamy's only trophy with the Reds was the Community Shield when he set up the winner for Peter Crouch with a perfect left-wing cross in a 2-1 success over Chelsea in Cardiff.
However, with Rafa Benitez looking for a new direction Bellamy joined West Ham in August 2007.
A move to Manchester City then materialised in January 2009 when he proved a very effective weapon playing on the left side of the attack.
He scored two fantastic goals in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford and was a popular figure with the City faithful.
Despite his relationship with the fans he later fell out of favour with Roberto Mancini and spent a season on loan at Cardiff City - before eventually making his Liverpool return.
