With all the hype surrounding Liverpool at the moment, Chelsea are keen to remind those in the Football Transfer Tavern that the title race is also very much in their own hands.
Jose Mourinho takes his side to Anfield in just over a week’s time, knowing that a win there will cement the Blues as firm favourites for the Premier League title.
