Rodgers relishing Chelsea game [AMBIENT]
Rightster - SNTV
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers looked forward to Sunday's visit of Chelsea to Anfield in the English Premier League. The Reds boss may be tempted to freshen things up, however, after back-to-back goalless draws, but he knows the visit of Chelsea is "a big game", especially as they want to end the season strongly. Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez will make his first return to Anfield as a visiting coach and the current Anfield incumbent said the Spaniard will get "an excellent reception." Rodgers will also be a familiar face to his opponents on Sunday, after previously coaching Chelsea's reserve and youth sides. 10 points adrift of fourth place, the Reds' hopes of qualifying for the Champions League appear to be over, but Liverpool will be motivated by closing the gap on local rivals Everton, who are currently six points ahead in sixth.
