In one of the biggest games in Premier League, Liverpool will host Chelsea under the floodlights of Anfield in a late kick-off on Saturday.
Both sides are currently embroiled in an enticing battle for top four places, and they are separated by only three points in the league table.
The Reds are currently on a three-game winning run in the league and defeated Southampton 3-0 at home last weekend. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side were once again exposed on the defensive front during the midweek as they blew up a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Sevilla in Champions League.
Chelsea have also picked up some form of late after having an inconsistent start to the season. They are currently on a four-game winning run in the league, and, in their last fixture, they claimed a 4-0 win at West Bromwich Albion.
The Blues were also involved in Champions League during midweek, and they claimed a 4-0 win over Qarabag.
Last season, the corresponding fixture ended in a 1-1 draw, and the Reds claimed a 2-1 win over eventual league champions at Stamford Bridge.
