Premier League Live Liverpool vs Chelsea: Prediction, team news, Probable Lineups, Head to head, LIV vs CHE Live Streaming details
A potentially pivotal match in the Premier League top-four race takes place at Anfield on Thursday when champions Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Merseyside.
The hosts sit one place and one point behind their visitors, and victory for either team would be enough to lift them into the Champions League spots with fourth-placed West Ham United, not in action in midweek.

The top-four race is not one either of these clubs would have gone into the season expecting to be involved in, and certainly not one they would have expected to be chasing, with the ground still to make up at this stage of the campaign.
However, both teams – and Liverpool in particular – have been required to strengthen their expectations over the course of the season, and securing Champions League football next term is now the sole priority for both as far as their league ambitions are concerned.
That is already the worst run Liverpool have experienced since 1923, and especially as many home defeats as they had sustained in their first 100 such games under Klopp.
It would be a remarkably poor record at any time but becomes even more baffling considering it has come shortly after a 68-game home triumphant run in the league – the second-longest such streak in English top-flight history.

Liverpool vs Chelsea LIVE: Prediction
Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea
The last time Chelsea visited Anfield there were goals galore and Liverpool ended the night by lifting the Premier League trophy aloft.
Thursday’s showdown is likely to be very different.
The fortress that was Anfield has been destroyed in the space of four games, while it is difficult to see this Chelsea team shipping five goals under Tuchel given the watertight start they have made since the new boss took over.
