Liverpool are likely to come up against a weakened Chelsea side on Sunday; but they will hardly care, knowing full well that at Anfield, they are capable of beating any side in the world on current form.

The Reds have been near untouchable at home, killing teams off in the first 20 minutes with their unrelenting, explosive pace-filled attacking football, and Brendan Rodgers will target a similar opening against a Chelsea side built to withstand such an assault.
Jose Mourinho threatened to put out a weakened side in protest of having to play on Sunday with a massive champions League semifinal against Atletico Madrid looming in three days.
Rodgers, however, is aware, no matter what team comes up against them, Liverpool will have to be at their best to continue their march towards the English Premier League title.
"I saw suggestions that he may play a weakened team, but I think it is hugely disrespectful to some of their players if they are deemed to be the weaker ones in the squad," Rodgers said. "Whatever team they put out it will cost more money than ours and be more experienced than ours.
"It is difficult because they have the game in midweek. There is no doubt that if they put the same team out on Wednesday as on Sunday there will be a cost to that.
"We've seen it with Manchester City. When they played us it was an intense game because of the nature of our game - we work tirelessly and are aggressive in attack and defence. And when they played Sunderland after that it had a real cost and they ended up drawing the game."
Every time Liverpool have been tipped to stumble in the title race, they have answered back with a win, and most often, an emphatic one. Their current winning run stands at an amazing 11 and only a brave man would bet against them making it 12.
"We know Sunday is a significant game but over our last 11 games we have played a lot of significant games," Rodgers added. "This is another big hurdle but it is three points at the end of it. Our focus is very much on the next game.
"We are playing with lots of confidence. We have had to show a lot of qualities in recent games and they will put us in good stead."
Chelsea are five points behind Liverpool with three games remaining, following that massive loss to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge last weekend, and Mourinho knows even a win at Anfield on Sunday will not make then favourites for the title.
Manchester City, who play Crystal Palace later on Sunday, are six points behind Liverpool with a game in hand, and will be the biggest fans of Chelsea for two hours starting 2 pm BST.
Team news: Liverpool: Jose Enrique remains ruled out with a knee injury, while striker Daniel Sturridge is a doubt with a hamstring problem.
Chelsea: Mourinho lost the services of goalkeeper Petr Cech for the rest of the season, while John Terry also picked up an injury which rules him out of the match on Sunday, and most probably, the second leg against Atletico. Eden Hazard has still not recovered from his injury, while Samuel Eto'o also remains sidelined. Ramires will not play in the Premier League again this season after being handed a four-match ban.
Expected lineups: Liverpool: Mignolet; Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan; Allen, Gerrard, Coutinho; Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge.
Chelsea: Schwarzer; Kalas, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole; Matic, Mikel, Salah, Lampard, Schurrle; Ba.
