Kenny Dalglish is hoping to maintain a proud record when he takes Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Scot has never lost to Chelsea as Liverpool manager in any competition - winning eight and drawing three of the 11 meetings.
Here are the rest of the facts and figures ahead of the big game from club statto Ged Rea.
Head to head (league only):
Overall: Liverpool 62 wins, Chelsea 46 wins, 28 draws.
At Chelsea: Liverpool 17 wins, Chelsea 37 wins, 14 draws.
A win will put Liverpool level on points with Chelsea and a three goal margin of victory will take the Reds above their London rivals.
Last season Liverpool recorded their second Premier League 'double' over Chelsea. The Reds won 2-0 at Anfield thanks to two Fernando Torres goals in the first half and a tremendous rearguard action after the break.
Raul Meireles scored the only goal of the game after 69 minutes of the return in London last February - a game that saw Torres wear a Chelsea shirt for the first time.
The 'double' was only the Reds' second over the Blues in 21 seasons.
All of the Reds' wins at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era have been by a 1-0 scoreline. Last season's victory followed Xabi Alonso's winner in 2008 and Bruno Cheyrou's in 2004.
