History

PMB: Liverpool v Chelsea - history

With the 21st Century's most frequent English fixture continuing this weekend, past meetings with the Reds are recalled by club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton…

Liverpool have not kept a clean sheet in the past 14 Premier League matches between the sides. Chelsea have kept two in the same period.

May’s 1-0 success for the Blues, courtesy Olivier Giroud’s first league goal for a year as a starter, ended a run of three home league games without victory against the Reds. Savour the best moments again here.

 

Chelsea have won three of our last 11 league meetings at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool have managed five wins in that time.

 

BLUE NOTES

The Blues bagged a baker’s dozen at the Bridge against lowly Luxembourg side Jeunesse Hautcharage on 29 September 1971, during our defence of the Cup Winners’ Cup. With the 8-0 from the first leg factored in, Chelsea registered a record-breaking 21-0 aggregate victory.
