After going head to head in the FA Cup final on Saturday evening, Chelsea and Liverpool face each other on Tuesday evening in the Premier League at Anfield, with Ladbrokes reporting plenty of support for the resurgent Blues at 11/5.
Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from their defeat at Wembley of course. The Reds were very impressive in the second half but couldn’t quite match Chelsea’s first half performance. The match ended in a 2-1 defeat for them.
Attention now has to turn to the getting as many points as possible in the league for Kenny Dalglish’s men. They currently sit in ninth position and after failing to add to their Carling Cup victory in February, fans at Anfield may not be quite as lenient on the club’s poor league season.
Dalglish’s side have dropped points in 13 games on home soil this campaign, including three defeats from their last four. Liverpool have also taken all three points from just one of their previous eight encounters on their own turf.

Andy Carroll was a second half substitute on Saturday and the £35 million man was arguably their best player and if he had of started it could have been a different story. Carroll will look to take this form into the final two fixtures of the year.
As for Chelsea, they are a side that are flying with confidence at the moment after delivering their fourth FA Cup trophy in six years at the weekend.
With Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle all dropping points in their respective matches in the league, the Blues can move to within just two points of the top four, which would of course mean Champions League football next year.
Roberto Di Matteo’s side will, however, have one eye on their Champions League final against Bayern Munich later in the month. If they were to win this competition then a top four finish would not matter, as it would guarantee playing in Europe’s elite club tournament next season.
Di Matteo’s men are in a great run of form at the moment, losing just one game from 14 across all competitions. The Italian will be desperate for these run of results to continue for his team, taking them into the game against Bayern in great spirits.
Kick-off is at 8pm on Tuesday.
