Liverpool took advantage of Chelsea's erratic defending to earn a comfortable 4-1 win on Tuesday, gaining a small measure of revenge for Saturday's 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 within 30 minutes. While Stewart Downing missed a penalty right before halftime and Ramires pulled one 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 mean they cannot overtake Tottenham for fourth place.
