Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to break his duck against Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday in a crucial game in the Premier League title race. Rodgers has taken charge of a side of six occasions against Chelsea, where he used to work as a youth coach prior to becoming a number one, and never celebrated victory. The Northern Irishman first took on Chelsea as a coach with Watford in an FA Cup tie in 2009, which the Hornets lost 3-1, and then twice as Swansea City boss in the Premier League. As Swans boss Rodgers saw his side suffer a 4-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge before holding the Blues to a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium in the 2011-12 season – his only top-flight campaign at the Welsh club before leaving for Liverpool. Rodgers has led Liverpool into three games against Chelsea, drawing twice and losing once, coming in the first fixture between the two sides this season at Stamford Bridge as Liverpool surrendered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1.
