Chelsea v Liverpool: match preview

first_imgLiverpool will arrive on a high with thoughts already fixed on the Champions League final later this month, but Chelsea could technically draw level on points with the team currently third should they win their next two fixtures. Antonio Conte’s side are clinging to the remote possibility of a top four finish, though the Italian did say Sunday’s game “could be a good opportunity to keep the hope alive”. They have belatedly found some form of sorts, with four wins in a row in all competitions. Liverpool can ill afford to be distracted.
