Liverpool vs Chelsea Match Analysis and Prediction

A pivotal match in the top four race occurs this week in the Premier League as Liverpool welcomes home in-form Chelsea. The match schedules for Thursday at Anfield with kickoff at 11:15 pm.

The hosts sit one place and one point behind their visitors, and victory for either team will be fit enough to lift them on Champions League spots with fourth-placed West Ham United not in action in midweek.

The top four race is very open, and this week could mean much for cementing a stance for all top sides. Liverpool might have conceded that their title defending season fell short, thus focusing on securing a Champions League spot.

Liverpool’s side down the table has been disappointing while managing to win two games out of 11 before Sunday’s much needed 2-0 triumph over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Plenty of problems still exist for Liverpool. Their formidable home run for Anfield came to a strong halt with four consecutive losses.

Liverpool’s winless run at Anfield now stretches back to seven games back to December 16, and they have only scored once in their last five matches at Anfield. It comes at a point where they face off against a defensively solid Thomas Tuchel’s side.

The champions outclassed Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the reverse fixture, but Thursday’s visitors appear a different proposition under Tuchel.
