Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield earlier today.

Chelsea won 2-0 away to Liverpool on Sunday evening to throw the Premier League title race wide open once more.

A win for the hosts would have all but secured their first such title, but goals from Demba Ba and Willian ensured Jose Mourinho's men are now very much back in the race.

Ba scored on the stroke of half-time after Steven Gerrard's slip allowed him in, and Willian put the game to bed after good work from Fernando Torres, who squared the ball rather than trying to score against his former club.

The result means just two points now separate Chelsea in second place and Liverpool in first position.  And with just two games remaining it means the most exciting title chase in years is now likely to go down to the final, nail-biting day.
