Liverpool 0-2 Chelsea, April 27, 2014

       

With the two sparring off this weekend, here’s a flashback to the April 2014 Anfield fixture in which Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea side all but decimated Liverpool’s Premier League hopes.

Having looked frighteningly potent in the weeks leading up, Brendan Rodgers’s side, armed with a free scoring Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, were just seven points away from claiming the illustrious Premier League trophy (their first since its 1992 rebrand).

With three games to play, and with all of the momentum in the world, not many would have bet against the Reds at the seasons close.

       

Naturally, Jose Mourinho didn’t give a toss.

Chelsea proceeded to claim a valuable 2-0 victory with Liverpool denied at every turn by Chelsea’s efficiently organised defensive play.

To add salt to the wounds, it would be one of legendary captain Steven Gerrard’s worst days in a Liverpool shirt.

Have a watch.
