Liverpool will be playing hosts to Chelsea tonight (Thursday), with both teams in desperate need of a win.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have suffered enormously since the turn of the year, having gone from the top of the table and title contenders to as low as sixth and mere top-four hopefuls as things stand.
Heading into the latest match they are scheduled to play, the Reds will be relieved more than anything after ending a four-game losing run with a 2-0 win at Sheffield United on Sunday.
The Blues, on the other hand, continue to make gradual progress under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel.
While Chelsea are unbeaten after playing their first nine games with the German manager in-charge, shipping in just two goals, they have been quite goal-shy and have managed to find the back of the net just 10 times.
Nevertheless, this has been a good base to build upon for the west Londoners.
Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Kabak, Robertson, Alcântara, Wijnaldum, Jones, Salah, Firmino, Mané
Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rüdiger, James, Kanté, Jorginho, Chilwell, Ziyech, Mount, Werner
Kick off is at 21:15 (GMT +1), 4 March 2021.
