Liverpool have incredibly sealed a berth in Champions League final but have some unfinished business left in Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s men are yet to secure a ‘top four’ finish but a result against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge might be just enough to do so.
The Blues are in a great form of late having secured three back to back away wins and will be determined to pull off one last effort to drag the contest until the ultimate gameweek. Fatigue will hinder the Reds to deliver their best after such a high-voltage midweek outing against AS Roma whereas Antonio Conte’s will be pumped up to grab a sound victory on Sunday evening.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Injuries And Suspensions:
The Blues will be without Danny Drinkwater and Ethan Ampadu who are ruled out with calf and ankle injuries whereas David Luiz is facing a race against time to feature again this term following a lengthy spell on the sidelines. But Marcos Alonso has completed his three-game suspension and is set to return in action against the Merseyside giants.
Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are ruled out for the season with their respective thigh and knee injuries. Joe Gomez is a doubt as well after sustaining an ankle strain versus Stoke City last weekend. Emre Can has little hope to feature again in Liverpool colours due to a back injury as well as contract expiry but Adam Lallana has returned to full training and might be involved against the Blues at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Probable Lineups:
Subs: Willy Caballero, Emerson, Andreas Christensen, Davide Zappacosta, Alvaro Morata, Willian, Pedro.
Subs: Simon Mignolet, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ragnar Klavan, Alberto Moreno, Adam Lallana, Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Last Meeting:
Their last meeting at Stamford Bridge ended in a 2-1 victory for Liverpool. Dejan Lovren’s early opener and Jordan Henderson’s long-range cracker earned the Reds a two-goal lead in the first half. Diego Costa pulled one back after the break but could not clinch a result despite dominating the second half.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Key Players:
The Blues have Olivier Giroud upfront who holds a great record versus the Reds in Arsenal colours. Eden Hazard can change a game single-handedly whereas N’Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas will look to dominate the midfield game.
Liverpool will rely on the deadly trio of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Sadio Mane for goals, particularly the latter who will be thriving to become the lone leader as Premier League’s highest ever scorer in a single season against his former employers who did not offer him enough minutes to flourish at the Bridge.
