Meireles wouldn't milk a goal

BY foxsports • November 19, 2011

The Portugal international made the move from Anfield to Stamford Bridge in the summer and says he respects the Kop fans too much to celebrate against them. Instead the man who scored the winner for Liverpool when the sides last met will keep a respectful silence if he finds the target again. Meireles told The Sun: "If I score, I will not celebrate out of respect to the Reds supporters. "They were incredible towards me during my stay on Merseyside and I am also very grateful to Liverpool for giving me the chance to play in England. "Mind you, that's all in the past. I had some great times at Liverpool but I am a professional and my head is totally focused on Chelsea and beating them. "I remember my goal against Chelsea - it was both beautiful and very important because we won the game. "(Now) I want to score goals for Chelsea, although my main task here is to help my attacking team-mates. I'm trying though. I'm always ready to shoot."
