Liverpool v Chelsea, Premier League

Shane McArdle looks forward to Sunday’s big Premier League meeting of Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield, Sun 14th Apr, 4:30pm

Form:

Liverpool will come into this game unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League games and in their last 15 matches in all competition.

They have scored 21 goals in their last eight home games and currently sit top of the Premier League table, two points ahead of Man City with one more game played.

Chelsea have won their last three Premier League games since a disappointing 2-0 loss to Everton back on March 17th, however those three wins have come against Cardiff, Brighton and West Ham.

The Londoners have also lost three of their last five away fixtures in the Premier League this season (those losses were 4-0 away to Bournemouth, 6-0 away to Man City and that 2-0 loss away to Everton most recently).

The Match:

Liverpool will be looking to make home advantage count as they continue to try to win their first Premier League title. Liverpool fans are still haunted by the infamous slip by Steven Gerrard that effectively cost them their first league title in 24 years back in April 2014.

That won’t happen this time, but it was Man City who capitalised to win the title that season and they are Liverpool’s main title rivals again this season.

Chelsea, despite having a very up and down season and lacking any consistency still find themselves in third place in the league table coming into this big game (albeit 14 points behind second-place Man City and 16 points behind Liverpool).

However Tottenham Hotspur are currently just two points behind Chelsea with a game in hand.

In 53 Premier League games between the sides, Liverpool have won 19, Chelsea with 20 wins and 14 draws.

Liverpool have won 13 league games at home to Chelsea at Anfield.

Chelsea have won six away premier League games at Anfield.

The last two Premier League games between the sides have both finished 1-1.

Team News:

Jurgen Klopp’s injury-list is pretty short, with only Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the only concerns.

Lallana will face a late fitness test after a muscle injury kept him out of the Southampton and Porto matches, while Oxlade-Chamberlain is still working on getting back to full fitness after almost a year out of action.

Young player Ethan Ampadu is the only absentee for Chelsea as he is suffering from an ongoing back injury.

Most of the big names rested in Thursday’s 1-0 away win to Slavia Prague in the Europa League are expected to be back in action in this massive game.
