Liverpool vs Chelsea - Premier League preview and team news

Liverpool can move on to the brink of winning their first title of the Premier League by claiming a victory that would rule Chelsea out of the race altogether.

A somewhat nervy victory at Norwich City after such a storming start completed yet another near-perfect weekend for the Reds. Chelsea’s shock defeat to Sunderland has given them some extra leeway, and they are now just seven points away from pulling off an achievement that nobody believed possible at the beginning of the season. However, if they lose here, the doubts may start to creep in.

It remains to be seen how Chelsea will approach this game, with manager Jose Mourinho contemplating the idea of fielding a slightly weakened team with the Champions League in mind. Should he do so, it would suggest that he believes the title is now beyond his side after the careless performance against the bottom club where they lacked cutting edge. Despite that, the Blues cannot be underestimated by their hosts.

Daniel Sturridge could return for Liverpool, meaning one of Joe Allen and Lucas Leiva is likely to be dropped to the bench. Jordan Henderson is still suspended, while Victor Moses is ineligible.

Petr Cech and John Terry will both miss the rest of the season after they were injured in Madrid on Tuesday. Ramires is banned after elbowing Sunderland’s Sebastian Larsson.
