In 2014 the Blues defeated the Reds, sinking their chances to win the English Premier League title of that season.

Liverpool is set to host Chelsea tomorrow afternoon in Matchday 34 of the English Premier League.

And Reds’ captain Jordan Henderson remembered how he has unfinished business with the Blues, as they defeated Liverpool in 2014, sinking their title hopes.

“It was hard to watch. It was a tough time to miss those games at a crucial time. Chelsea went to do a job and they did it well,” said Henderson to Football 365.

“I was on edge big time. I could sense it with the crowd too when they were wasting time in the first few minutes. It wasn’t nice to watch.”

Liverpool is currently in the first position of the table with 82 points, two ahead of second-place Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Chelsea is third with 66 points, a defeat here might see them go down to the fifth place.

He added: “For me, it’s just another thing I’ve used to keep going and channel all my energy into keep winning games and being successful for Liverpool.”

“This is a fantastic team but it’s a big month or so for us as a team and hopefully we can keep performing and keep winning to get the results that we need to get over the line.”

“You want to win trophies, especially when you are at this football club,” he said.

“I try to use that time as an experience and try to help the lads in the best way I can. It’s a new chapter and a new team.”

“I still felt we had that belief back when we were going for the title a few years ago but we weren’t as strong as we would have liked to have been,” added Henderson.

“I don’t like to compare. It’s a totally different team.”
