The ninth-placed Reds and 10th-placed Blues only have 28 points to their name from their league matches approaching the midway point of the season, although the hosts have a game in hand over their visitors.

Defeat to Brighton marked the first time since 1993 that Liverpool had suffered back-to-back league defeats at the start of the calender year, and a season without European football beckons unlest the Reds enjoy a remarkable turnaround in the coming months, as they are two points behind Brighton in seventh and a further 10 adrift of the Champions League spots.

A first clean sheet in seven matches at Wolves was a sight for sore eyes, as Liverpool’s imperious home record in the Premier League, as they have lost just one of their last 32 top-flight games at Anfield and have scored 23 goals on home turf.

Not since a 1-0 defeat to Fulham in March 2021 have the Reds failed to score in a home league match, and Klopp will take charge of his 1000th game as manager this weekend, no doubt eyeing all three points.

Having avoided a fourth game without victory in the Premier League, Chelsea are just about clinging onto their top-half spot in 10th, behind Liverpool on goal difference and with an identical gap to make up to the top seven and Champions League places.

Graham Potter continues to receive the backing of the Chelsea board, despite only winning two of his last 10 Premier League matches in chage, and the Blues embarked on poor five-game winless run away from home in the top flight since overcoming Aston Villa in October.

Both Premier League encounters between Liverpool and Chelsea eneded level last season before the Reds beat the Blues in the FA Cup and EFL Cup final on penalties, but Klopp’s side cannot rely on their 12-yard prowess to inflict more misery on Potter’s side here.

Liverpool Team News

Diogo Jota, Virgil van Dijk, Arthur, Robert Firmino and Luis Diaz will not be back for Liverpool just yet, but Klopp is expecting Darwin Nunez to be back from an unspecified issue in time to feature here.

Nunez’s return should see Cody Gakpo revert to a wide role as Fabio Carvalho makes way, while Kostas Tsimikas suffered a knock to the back at Molineux but was always expected to cede his apot to Andrew Robertson.
