Chelsea to test Liverpool's revival
Liverpool's recent good form will come under the microscope when the team meets champions Chelsea at Anfield in round eleven of the English Premiership.
Two wins for Liverpool against Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers have lifted the Anfield outfit from the relegation zone to 13th on the table.
Position 13 is a far cry for the team that has been used to be in the top four but a win against the table topping Chelsea will see Liverpool go up as far as fifth depending on other results.
Chelsea has only lost once in the league against Manchester City and a win here will make sure the team maintains its five point lead at the top.
In the same fixture last season the visitors won 2-nil on their way to winning the title.
