History of the Liverpool v Chelsea fixture

Chelsea face a trip to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 48 out of 72 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in May 2007, the Reds carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in an Champions League match.
