Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield on Sunday (Watch live, 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) as Jurgen Klopp’s side aim to keep their focus and go back to the top of the Premier League table.
The Reds know a win will send them top with four games to go, although Man City do have a game in hand on them. And even though Chelsea have had a rollercoaster campaign under Maurizio Sarri, they are still well in the top four hunt and a win would give their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League a huge boost.
Chelsea would love to play the role of spoiler once again after scuppering Liverpool’s title hopes in 2014, which was the last time Liverpool had a shot at winning the trophy. Everyone connected with the home team will be hoping lightning doesn’t strike twice.
In team news Liverpool start Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Fabinho in central midfield, with Georginio Wijnaldum dropping to the bench.
Chelsea start Eden Hazard in a false nine, with Willian, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi in support of him.
