The game may have been a let down but Hitchin youngster George Fitter was still on top of the world after the battle of two of the Premiership's big guns.
George was a mascot at Sunday's goal-less stalemate between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
The Liverpool fanatic goes to Anfield to watch the matches whenever his dad can take him away from his three sisters!
So it was unbelievable when he was chosen to be the mascot for the Reds and led out the team alongside his favourite player Steven Gerrard.
