Avram Grant's side face Liverpool in the semi-finals for the third time in four years having lost the previous two ties.

Italian Vialli told skyitalia.it: "Looking at the never-ending English battle between Chelsea and Liverpool, I think that the idea that 'there's not two without a third' in favour of Liverpool won't happen.

"In previous years, the Blues have had a long line of misfortunes against (Rafa) Benitez's side but this year I think they will get to the final probably playing against Manchester United for the championship and the cup and I think that at the end they will win it."
