Adam Lallana has re-iterated that although Chelsea have the title done and dusted, Liverpool are still aiming for a top four finish and intend to spoil our party on Sunday.
Now there is someone I think we all thought we would see much more of this season and the move to Anfield would take him to the next level. However, it just seems from the outside looking in that it's been stop-start for the England Midfielder.
So to Sunday and like the rest of the Chelsea supporters, I am looking forward to Lallana and his team mates giving us a guard of honour as champions. I will also ensure my plastic flag is out and waved about just to add to the spectacle!
Liverpool ARE right back in the race for the top four after Manchester United have suffered three defeats on the spin starting at Stamford Bridge a couple of weeks ago.
Looking well out of the running, Liverpool have United in their sights and Lallana believes that his side can come here to get the result they need to pile even more pressure on their rivals.
"Chelsea deserve to be champions, The table doesn't lie. They have been the best team throughout the season. You have to respect that.
All I know is we want to go there and spoil the party. We're looking to go there and cause an upset and put a dent in their celebrations.
We can still finish in the top four but we need to take maximum points now. We'll keep fighting right to the end. We all know what can happen.
United have some tough games to play and I am sure they will drop more points. We have to put pressure on United by going to Stamford Bridge and getting three points. Pressure is a tough thing to deal with.
We need to beat Chelsea and Palace and hope it all comes down to the final weekend. We all knew that last week was a big week and it was disappointing to only get four points out of the games against West Brom, Hull and QPR."
He should know that isn't exactly going to be easy. As we know, Jose Mourinho has said that he will be giving those players that haven't featured as much as the others, games in our remaining fixtures but that doesn't mean it will weaken our side.
Chelsea v Liverpool is always a feisty affair and I expect the same on Sunday. You can imagine the guard of honour will only motivate Liverpool for the game having to stand there and do that.
We are Champions, we are the best team in the country and if Adam Lallana and his team mates think that they can turn up and spoil our party without a game plan and tactical masterclass from Jose Mourinho, he has another thing coming.
I can't wait until Sunday!
