Will Liverpool finish alone on top?

You'll Never Walk Alone

Sunday marks the most momentous footballing occasion in recent history with Liverpool hosting rival Chelsea. A win would eliminate the North Londoners and even a draw keeps the Reds in the catbird’s seat. Daniel Sturridge is expected to play for LFC but Chelsea suffered two injuries during Champions League play when goalkeeper Petr Cech and Captain John Terry were injured. Neither are expected to suit up at Anfield, while midfielder Eden Hazard (calf) is questionable. The 41 year-old Mark Schwarzer will be starting in goal for the Blues.

A dangerous trap game looms next week when Liverpool visits a dangerous Crystal Palace side, which recently dealt Everton a shock home defeat that may cost the Toffees a 2014-15 Champions League berth. The Reds close the season hosting Newcastle United in a game they should win.

Manchester City looms six points behind LFC in the table and has an extra game in hand. City has tough home games with Crystal Palace and Everton, but the Sky Blues could steal the title via goal differential should they run the table while LFC loses a game.

But if Liverpool takes down Chelsea and finishes the job, the goose bump-inducing singing from Anfield will be heard all the way across the pond come Mother’s Day.
