Normal for title-chasing Liverpool to feel heat - Chelsea's Sarri

Normal for title-chasing Liverpool to feel heat - Chelsea's Sarri

"We had a big chance but we were relying on the quality of Luis Suarez's goalscoring, whereas now we are more together". They are one of the best teams in England right now, they reached the final of the Champions League previous year and at Anfield it is always hard.

Then we saw what he can do as he produced a sensational winning goal in the League Cup game against Liverpool at Anfield earlier this season, with his class shining through in a tie that was evenly balanced heading into the closing stages.

"So we went out like this, but he still expected us to win".

"It is down to us to stop that".

Brendan Rodgers' team had gone into the final three games of the 2013/14 season with a five point lead over Chelsea and a nine point lead over eventual champions Manchester City, who had two games in hand at the time. Maybe we will take 13 players and two will play only against Eden!

"The best way to try to make sure that he can not shine is to avoid passes to him, react a little bit better than other teams did".

"I like footballers like this". He had a brilliant career, and it's not over. React a little bit better than other teams did. You try to read the game, read the passes, but in the end, in a one-vs-one situation, you can not defend him.

Chelsea are the underdogs for Sunday's game, so Blues fans will need to replicate that kind of support to spur the players on to victory.

There are two changes in the middle of the park, with N'Golo Kante returning to the side at the expense of Ross Barkley, while academy graduate Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has been in very good form of late, also comes back, with Mateo Kovacic dropping out. "It's Anfield and I said it a few times, we have to create the power of Anfield and use it again".
