Liverpool have now scored 3+ goals in 20 league games this season, matching Manchester City’s Barclays Premier League record set two seasons ago.
Jose Mourinho has won six and lost just one of his eight previous Barclays Premier League meetings with Liverpool (D1).
Liverpool are the only team yet to lose any points from a winning position at home this season.
Luis Suarez needs five goals in Liverpool’s last three games to set a new record for a player in a single Premier League campaign.
Liverpool need four more goals to become the 30th instance of a top-flight team scoring 100 goals in a single season (and only the second since the 1960s).
Only four of the last 14 teams to score 100+ goals in a top-flight campaign have won the title.
A win in this game will see the Reds equal their best ever run of wins set in the top-flight (12 in 1990).
Fernando Torres is yet to score in 337 Premier League minutes against former club Liverpool in the Premier League.
Torres has scored 45 Premier League goals at Anfield, 10 more than Luis Suarez (35).
Chelsea have lost only one of seven Premier League games played in between Champions League semi-final matches (and that was back in 2004); winning four and drawing two.
