Benitez remains professional ahead of Anfield assignment

In recent years, Liverpool always raised their game against us even though they were damned to a mid table finish. Liverpool has only lost two of their last 12 league meetings although Chelsea are unbeaten in the last 5 encounters with 4 wins and a draw. In 33 meetings in various competitions in the last eight seasons Chelsea won 13 of those games and Liverpool 12. Suarez needs one more goal to become the first Liverpool player score 30 goals in a season in all competitions since Torres in 2007-08.
Chelsea travels to Liverpool tomorrow to perhaps, considering current circumstances, validate their top 4 position. Benitez will certainly change his side once again from the mid-week squad that played against Fulham. Changes that will be prevalent would be to rest players and not necessarily an edited formation as surely Ba and Torres upfront would keep the beleaguered Liverpool defence busy. Benitez, manager of Liverpool from 2004 to 2010, insists that he is a professional and will do his best on beating his former employers.
