Liverpool vs Chelsea on Sunday’s Premier League clash at Anfield
After securing a comfortable Champions League quarter-final lead over FC Porto, Liverpool will hope to successfully negotiate the most difficult remaining fixture of their domestic title run-in this afternoon as they host Chelsea at Anfield.
The Premier League leaders returned to the summit and took a two-point lead over quadruple-chasers Manchester City – who were busy reaching the FA Cup final – last Friday night as Naby Keita, Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson all struck during a hard-fought 3-1 comeback win at Southampton.
Score prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Chelsea
Chelsea are potentially going in search of a fifth successive win against a Liverpool side bidding for their seventh straight victory across all competitions.
The Reds have not been at their scintillating best of late but keep finding a way to grind out wins and have not lost a home league game since April 2017.
It may be another nervy affair, but Klopp’s men should have the firepower to get the job done.
