Liverpool vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool entertain Chelsea on Wednesday evening in their first league fixture since Jurgen Klopp confirmed he would be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Liverpool sit top of the Premier League and recorded a comfortable 4-0 away win at Bournemouth last time out, with Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota scoring twice.

They also progressed in both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup since then and will meet Wednesday’s opponents in the final of the latter.

Chelsea smashed Middlesbrough 6-1 in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final, easily overturning their one goal deficit.

In their last league match they edged past Fulham 1-0, with Cole Palmer’s penalty on the stroke of half-time the difference.
