Preview EPL : CHELSEA VS LIVERPOOL

Preview EPL 10/02/08 : CHELSEA VS LIVERPOOL

The Reds head back to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for yet another clash with the aristocrats of Chelsea.
In the past three years it has been a trip Kopites have grown more than accustomed to as the two sides have met on no fewer than 16 occasions...

Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League - you name it, we've played it.

And yet we are still awaiting a first win on the home turf of the Blues under Rafael Benitez.

It's fair to say it's not been the best of grounds for us over the years either and we have already been beaten in the capital by Avram Grant's side this season, when we were dumped out of the Carling Cup courtesy of a 2-0 defeat.

Having won just one one of our last six league matches it's probably not a good time for us to be playing them either, as they continue to grind out victories in the hope of keeping pace with Manchester United and Arsenal at the top.

There is still the sense of a burning injustice from the league meeting at Anfield back in August, when a dreadful refereeing decision saw the Blues snatch a late penalty equaliser after Fernando Torres had scored his first for the club.

A win at Stamford Bridge would go some way to restoring confidence in the Liverpool ranks and help banish the memories of Rob Styles' moment of madness.
