Chelsea face a trip to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Blues will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 48 and win only 10 of the 74 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2008, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Champions League match.
