Two contenders for the Premier League title and both sides are also gunning for the Champions League trophy too. Liverpool in the past have dominated the ties in the Champions League match up while Chelsea have the upper hand in the Premier League. However, last season, things changed, Liverpool beat Chelsea twice both home and away in the Premiership, while Chelsea knockout Liverpool in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Chelsea ended their six consecutive victories in the Premiership at Wigan last week with a 3-1 defeat. That match revealed that Chelsea have vulnerable moments in the defense and that was fixed against Apoel Nicosia with a 1-0 away in the Champions League. Both matches showed that Chelsea did not play their best and Italian Coach Carlo Ancelotti will make sure they put out their best against Liverpool. Chelsea will be without goal keeper, Petr Cech, as he will start serving his three match suspension.

Rafa Benitez needs a reaction from his squad after losing 2-0 in their Champions League match against Fiorentina away from home in the midweek. It was Liverpool’s worse outing for some time and it was something that Benitez angered ahead of the titanic clash on Sunday. The reds made one change in the midweek where Albert Riera replaced by Brazilian Fabio Aurelio in the starting lineup. Javier Mascherano pulled his hamstring in the midweek and is ruled doubtful traveling to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea and Liverpool faces each other more than just the two scheduled matches in the Premiership, they are usually paired up in the latter stages in the Champions League or one of the English domestic cups. So both teams know each other inside out and this will certainly be a tight affair. Rafa Benitez have never beaten Ancoletti in the 90 minutes and that could prove a bit of a disadvantage for the away team.  Check out Betsson as they are offering odds at 3.20 for a draw.
