Key Players:

Analysis:

Liverpool have not been in their best form off-late and have a huge task ahead of themselves. Before their 2-0 win over Sheffield United, Liverpool had just won 2 out of their 11 games. A form which is nothing to be proud about. Curtis Jones scored the first goal against United for the Reds. And then an own-goal from Kean Bryan pocketed the match for Liverpool.

Chelsea are coming on the back of a 0-0 draw against second-placed Manchester United. Tuchel’s side were extra defensive in the match at Stamford Bridge and they lacked aggression at times. Tuchel has been in extravagant form as a manager. Ever since his arrival at the club, Chelsea have not lost a single game. They have won 6 games and drawn 3 games. Clearly, the transition from Lampard to Tuchel has been a smooth one. Chelsea would aim for a top-four finish this season as their race for the title seems beyond reach.
