Andrew Hughes thinks Liverpool can pick up a point at Chelsea on Sunday and help to land another cross-sport multiple

Jose Mourinho may not rest too many of his first team players for this game, but with the Premier League title sealed, there is bound to be a slight dip in intensity from Chelsea and that should enable Liverpool to escape with a draw.
A run of three defeats for Manchester United means that Brendan Rodgers side are still just about in the hunt for fourth place, so have everything to play for, although their recent run of only two wins from their last six isn't too promising.
Their form away from home isn't that impressive either, but they have managed to keep seven clean sheets in their last nine games on the road and if Chelsea are slightly off the pace, I can see the Reds picking up a point on Sunday.
IPL leaders Rajasthan Royals face a tough task on Sunday but I think they can defy the odds by pulling off a victory against Chennai Super Kings.
Chennai are a tough side to beat at home, but it can be done, as Mumbai Indians showed on Friday, when they restricted the Super Kings to 158 and chased down their target with four balls to spare.
Rajasthan also lost their last game, but that was a narrow last-ball defeat in a high-scoring contest against an improving Sunrisers Hyderabad side. The Royals have a variety to their bowling that Chennai lack and regularly pull off victories against more fashionable sides. Back them to cause another surprise on Sunday.
With two rounds to go there are still a couple of places in the Aviva Premiership play-offs up for grabs and Sunday's encounter at Allianz Park could go a long way towards deciding the final make-up of the top four.
Fourth-placed Exeter have had a superb season, but are losing form at just the wrong time. Two defeats in their last three matches have left them needing a win on Sunday to keep their play-off hopes alive, but their away form doesn't give much cause for optimism. They've only won once on the road since November and have lost their last two encounters with Saracens. Back the home side to prevail.
