LIVERPOOL, England -- Liverpool defeated Chelsea 4-1 Tuesday, gaining a small measure of revenge for its FA Cup final loss and eliminating the Blues from the race for fourth place in the Premier League.
Three days after Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-1 at Wembley, the Reds dominated from the start at Anfield and were up 3-0 after 30 minutes.
Stewart Downing of Liverpool missed a penalty kick just before halftime and Ramires pulled a goal back for Chelsea after the break. Jonjo Shelvey took advantage of backup goalkeeper Ross Turnbull's blunder to put the game away with his first Premier League goal for Liverpool.
The Chelsea players seemed to already have their minds on the Champions League final against Bayern Munich, and the loss means they cannot overtake Tottenham for fourth place.
