Chelsea vs Liverpool

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 6th May 2018

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

Chelsea were crowned Premier League Champions at this stage last season however this season they have surrendered their league crown to the dominant Manchester City and are even at risk of missing out on the top four entirely.

They come into their final three games of the season 5th in the league table with a five point deficit on Tottenham who are 4th.

While they chase a Champions League spot, they also have an FA Cup final date with Manchester United and Antonio Conte would be looking to keep their confidence high.

The Blues have hit top form during this run-in – they beat Swansea 1-0 in their last league game to make it 4 wins on the spin.

Prior to that, they lost five out of eight including a loss at home to Spurs a couple of weeks and they have five losses from their last eleven league games.

Liverpool are coming into this game fresh from securing a place in this season’s Champions League final following a 7-6 aggregate win over AS Roma.

Their season’s success has been built around their indispensable front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

The trio have netted 56 times in the league this season, with Salah scoring 31 of those goals to lead the scoring chart.

Chelsea have conceded 8 goals in their last 5 league games, and that will be sweet music to the ears of Liverpool attackers as they will look to undo the Blues defensive plan here.

Liverpool have three wins and three draws from their last six encounters with the Blues.
