Sitting ninth and tenth in the table respectively, the two heavyweights could deliver a knockout blow to any hopes their opposition have of making a late run to the European spots. Graham Potter’s side, at least, got back to winning ways last time out against Crystal Palace but know Anfield – no matter the form Liverpool are in – provides a far sterner test.
Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, saw his side beat Wolves in the FA Cup in midweek, which offers at least some encouragement after such a poor performance away at Brighton.

It’s hard to gauge Liverpool at the moment, while Chelsea’s options have been absolutely decimated by injury.
With neither at full strength, a draw seems a likely outcome.
