Storylines

Liverpool: Winning is the only option really from here on out. Dropping points could prove fatal in the race for the title. Having played a game more than Manchester City entering the weekend, there is more pressure on the Reds. Anything short of a win won’t be acceptable. 

Chelsea: The Blues have turned things around by securing nine points out of nine to jump into third place last week. It’s now all about finishing inside the top four, but going to Anfield isn’t easy. The focus will be to get the ball to Eden Hazard’s feet and let him go, and they’ll gladly take a draw in this tricky match. 

Liverpool vs. Chelsea prediction

The Reds contain Hazard for most of the match, Mohamed Salah scores again and the three points go to Liverpool.
