Cesar Azpilicueta has warned Liverpool FC that Chelsea FC will be ready to spoil their title party again as the Blues famously did in 2014.

The west London outfit will make the long trip to Merseyside on Sunday afternoon to take on Jurgen Klopp’s side in what should be a tense clash.

Liverpool FC are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and two points ahead of Manchester City, although the defending champions have played two games less.

Their clash against Chelsea FC is their toughest test of their remaining Premier League fixtures as Jurgen Klopp looks to become the first Liverpool FC manager to win the league.

The Reds were within three games of winning the Premier League crown in 2014 but their surprise 2-0 loss to Chelsea FC cost Brendan Rodgers, Steven Gerrard and co title glory.

Apzilicueta was part of the Chelsea FC side that caused the famous upset at Anfield.

And the Chelsea FC defender is hoping for a repeat when the two teams meet at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

“It was a few years ago, but we went there and they had the party ready because they were smashing every team at Anfield,” Azpilicueta told Sky Sports.

“We arrived with a very clear idea, and we produced the game we had to at that moment to beat that team that was getting very good results.

“So to beat them 2-0 was very important, an important win for the club and the fans. We enjoyed that day and hopefully we can replicate it on Sunday. It’s not about frustrating Liverpool, it’s about playing our game.”

Liverpool FC managed to rescue a 1-1 draw with Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge earlier this season thanks to Daniel Sturridge’s late equaliser.

The Reds haven’t won the Premier League title but have finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
