Liverpool play hosts to Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday night in the Premier League, as the home side looks to finish in the top-six this season.

Liverpool heads into this clash on the back of a 2-0 win over Watford last time out. The side from Merseyside took the lead in the first half through Welsh midfielder Joe Allen, before Brazilian attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino added a second in the second half.

The win means that Jurgen Klopp’s side could still possibly finish in the top five of the Premier League this season. Firmino has enjoyed a decent debut campaign in English football having scored ten goals and produced eight assists in the Premier League.

Chelsea suffered a 3-2 defeat at Sunderland last time out. Diego Costa’s opening goal was cancelled out by a strike from Black Cats winger Wahbi Khazri. The Blues took the lead in first half stoppage-time through Nemanja Matic.

However, second half goals from Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe gave the north east side a crucial win in their fight against relegation.

The Blues cannot now finish higher than ninth in the Premier League table, in what has been a campaign to forget for everybody connected with the club.
