IT was five years ago but Liverpool fans will remember it like it was yesterday.
The Anfield men were close to lifting the title but Steven Gerrard lost his balance against Chelsea and the Blues went on to win 2-0.
It was a damaging defeat for the Reds and they haven't been near to ending their drought since. Not till now.
Liverpool will probably seal the deal if they win their final five games and tomorrow Chelsea return to Anfield – unbeaten there in eight – in what on paper is Jurgen Klopp's toughest remaining fixture.
Thoughts will return to five years ago and with Chelsea back up to third and on a run of five victories, inspired by world-class Eden Hazard, they will fancy their chances of leaving with something and they are 11-8 with bet365 not to lose.
Klopp's men are 3-4 at Marathonbet while Chelsea are at biggest 9-2 with BetVictor.
It could be a great game and while Mo Salah is key for the Reds it's a lot about Hazard for the Blues and the Belgian was used for just the last half hour against Slavia Prague in midweek.
Spurs were superb in midweek as they beat Man City and could rest players at home to relegated Huddersfield in the lunchtime game. Harry Kane and Dele Alli are injured but they should have enough to win and stay in the fight for a top-four place.
In the evening kick-off, Man United should beat West Ham but are just 4-9 at Betfred.
Biggest game in the English Championship is fifth-placed Aston Villa against sixth-placed Bristol City. The winners will almost certainly clinch a play-off spot and I'm on Villa at 20-21 with Marathonbet after a run of seven win at just the right time.
Leeds and Sheffield United are fighting to join likely title winners Norwich in the Premier League and while both are at home today Leeds have the harder game against Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday in the 5.30pm live match.
The Blades are 7-10 at home to Millwall and Leeds a little short at 4-7 with Betfred.
Other teams I like in the Championship are on-form Swansea at QPR and Hull at a big price at Middlesbrough.
In League One the second promotion place will go to Sunderland or Barnsley and I'm backing both to win at home to Coventry and Fleetwood respectively. That double pays 21-10 at Betfred.
Lincoln are close to winning the League Two title and are 4-6 with Marathonbet at home to Cheltenham
