The Blues travel to Anfield on Tuesday (8pm) for their title showdown, where Jurgen Klopp is desperate for a turnaround in fortunes.
Liverpool head into the clash with table toppers Chelsea on a poor run, having lost three successive home matches.
Swansea, Southampton and Wolves have all beaten Klopp’s men on Merseyside in the past week.
And defeat to Chelsea, who lead Liverpool by 10 points in the title race, could end any hopes of silverware this season.

“They have a good coach and really good players.
“The crowd pushes them a lot and we must pay attention to this atmosphere because it will help them, but we have to play our football.”
