Cup activities are now done with, and while Chelsea were smiling during the weekend, it was tears for Liverpool and their supporters.
Chelsea will be away at Anfield on Tuesday night, and it’s a game that could create more sad memories for Liverpool FC.
A loss to Chelsea will set an unwanted record of 4 home defeats in 11 days for Liverpool. For a top club like Liverpool to lose 4 home games in the space of 11 games only shows how the giants have fallen — and you’ll recall that every pundit at a time tipped Liverpool to win the league ahead of Chelsea.
On Saturday, Liverpool lost to Wolves 2-1 in the FA Cup, on Wednesday they lost to Southampton 1-0, and just last Saturday they suffered another home defeat, as they lost to Swansea 3-2.
Surely we couldn’t have asked for a better time to play Liverpool, just as they defeated Chelsea in the first leg at Stamford Bridge when the Blues were still struggling.
