Liverpool vs Chelsea: Maurizio Sarri can join elite group of managers if he beats Reds at Anfield on his first visit

Facing Liverpool at Anfield has always been challenging, but this season has proved even more difficult with the league leaders unbeaten at home thus far.

In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s side have not lost at home in the top-flight since former Red Christian Benteke struck twice for Crystal Palace who fought back to win 2-1 in April 2017.

Liverpool have not lost at Anfield since 2017

Chelsea are the next side to visit when they travel to Merseyside this Sunday and they will be out to spoil the party, having memorably done so before.

Back in 2014, with Liverpool on the verge of an unlikely title triumph, a depleted Chelsea won 2-0 after Demba Ba capitalised on Steven Gerrard’s infamous slip to score, before Willian was on target in stoppage-time.

This will be no easy feat for the Blues however, despite their recent resurgence under Mauruizo Sarri, which has seen them win their last three successive league matches to climb into third.
