Kick-off: 4.00pm The Liverpool players made a guard of honour as Chelsea players came on to the field prior to kick-off. This was Chelsea’s first home match after they had been confirmed as Premier League champions for this season. When Bill Shankly’s Liverpool clinched the Football League title in 1966, the next visitors to Anfield were Tommy Docherty’s Chelsea who asked his players to form a guard of honour for the hosts as they emerged from the tunnel. These two clubs had now met on 40 occasions in all competitions since the start of the 2004-05 season (17 Chelsea wins, 12 Liverpool wins and 11 draws).

Comments:

League position: 1st Chelsea were now unbeaten in their last eight matches with Liverpool in all competitions (four wins). John Terry was now the highest-scoring recognised defender in Premier League history with 39 goals. The Blues' captain is the only Chelsea player to have played every minute of every Premier League game so far in this season. The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel ruled on the following: - Chelsea’s goal against Liverpool on Sunday 10th May 2015 has been confirmed as a John Terry goal. (Circular 28 – 14th May 2015)

Comments:

League position: 5th Failure to win this game meant that Liverpool would almost certainly fail to qualify for the following season's UEFA Champions League. They were now six points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with two games to play and a vastly inferior goal difference (14 goals). Steven Gerrard scored his 119th Premier League goal thus overtook Michael Owen as Liverpool's outright second-highest scorer in the competition's history after Robbie Fowler with 128 goals. Philippe Coutinho made his 100th appearance for the Reds in this game.
