Liverpool face the toughest of their remaining Premier League fixture this season in their quest for the EPL title.
The Reds take on third-placed Chelsea at Anfield and only a victory will be good enough for them.
The Reds have won four matches in a row to stay just one point behind Manchester City who also won their game on Sunday against Crystal Palace.
In Chelsea’s last five visits to Anfield, they have been unbeaten. Hence Jurgen Klopp and his men must find a winning formula this Sunday if they are still to harbor any realistic chance of winning the EPL title.
