Liverpool is set to face Chelsea in what will be the toughest test of their title credentials from their remaining Premier League games on Sunday afternoon. The Reds are currently top of the table، with a two-point advantage over Manchester City who has a game in hand on their title rivals.
The game comes at a critical point of the season for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they juggle commitments in the Champions League & League race. Of course، for Liverpool fans، this contest will throw up horrible memories of Steven Gerrard slipping to gift Demba Ba a goal as the Reds missed out of the title to Manchester City five years ago. Since then، Liverpool has been transformed under Jurgen Klopp، particularly at Anfield and has yet to lose a Premier League game this season.
As for Chelsea، they have been quietly improving under the much-maligned Maurizio Sarri. The Chelsea fans may have not taken to him just yet، but four wins on the bounce have pushed them back into the top four and potentially a place in the final four of the Europa League.
The Blues rested plenty of players against Slavia Prague and came away from the Czech capital with a vital 1-0 away win thanks to a late goal from Marcos Alonso. This should mean that the squad should be fresh for the game on Sunday، and Chelsea will be looking to gain points against Liverpool، to bolster their quest for Champions League football next season.
