Match status: 2019-20 Premier League - Matchweek 37
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool)
Needless to say, Liverpool have been the best team in the league this season, proving to be heads and shoulders above every other side within the cluster. Having amassed 93 points from 36 games, the Reds sit pretty atop the league standings and have already clinched the title.

This Liverpool bunch are absolute class, and have now conquered Europe and England in the space of about seven months. However, since securing the silverware that had eluded them for 29 years, their performance levels have dropped drastically.

Perhaps, this dip in form can be attributed to their lack of motivation with the league title already stashed in the bag. With Chelsea coming around town on Wednesday, the Blues will be looking to take advantage of the Reds’ recent poor form, to clinch maximum points as the race for top-four continues.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Team News

Though considered huge title challengers prior to the campaign, we never saw Liverpool sweeping through the Premier League the way they have done. The Reds have been utterly ruthless so far, giving so many opposing numbers headache in games.

Jurgen Klopp has been receiving lots of plaudits for the work put in at Anfield since moving to the Merseyside outfit. Last time out, Liverpool made a trip to the Emirates Stadium to take on a rejuvenated Arsenal side, and looking to secure bragging rights over their archrivals.

The visitors looked the better side throughout the game but managed to fall to a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Gunners. Registering a staggering 24 shots-on-goal and putting just one of these efforts into the net, profligacy was clearly Liverpool’s undoing in the game.

Meanwhile, Chelsea were scheduled to take on Championship-bound Norwich City on the last matchday in a must-win game for the Blues. With the likes of Leicester and Manchester United blowing hot on their tails, the Pensioners were desperate for victory to steer clear of the chasing pack.

A one-sided game it was at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea dominated the Canaries from start to finish, highlighting reasons why the latter could not retain their Premier League status this term. Giroud’s effort on the stroke of halftime was enough to clinch maximum points for Lampard’s men.

For this fixture, we cannot draw a line between these two sides. There are a lot of factors to come into play here. Chelsea are very desperate for points to avoid plunging down the standings, and even outside of the CL places.

They will be buzzing ahead of this game, thanks to their comprehensive 3-0 win over Manchester United few days ago in the FA Cup – one which ultimately confirmed their place in the finals of the competition. Also, they have won eight of their previous nine games across all competitions.

The visitors need no formal introduction. They are the league champions, and have not lost a single home game this season. They have remained unbeaten in each of their previous 24 games at Anfield, winning 21 of them in the process.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Predictions

For all their quality, it is important to note that Liverpool have not been entirely convincing in recent games. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their preceding five clashes, highlighting their recent defensive frailties.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are in tip-top form at the moment, and are grinding out important results every game-week. However, the Blues will have their work cut-out in a bid to avoid defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s men. The safest punt will be a double chance backing Liverpool for the win.
