Liverpool will face off against Chelsea tonight (22/07/2020). The Reds, who have not long been the champions, want to take another victory at the last home game of the season, the blues in this clash are fighting for important points for European football.
After a mixed start to the season, Chelsea are currently 3rd in the premier league with 63 points. Manchester United and Leicester both have 62 points with wolves not far behind.
Liverpool have led the premier league since matchday 2 and had an amazing early run with some stumbles coming later on in the season. In the last seven games, Liverpool have dropped points with a draw with Burnley, and a painful loss to by 2-1 to Arsenal. Liverpool can only get 99 points now meaning they won’t break any points records but we expect them to keep fighting for maximum points in their last two games.
Chelsea have had a rollercoaster season under Frank Lampard. Their recent form has lifted with a 3-1 FA Cup win over Manchester united sending them to Wembley against Arsenal. The only drop in points in the last 11 games was a dismal trip to Sheffield United losing 3-0. Chelsea are fighting for a place in Europe and only 3 points is the difference between Champions League football and European obscurity.
Jurgen Klopp goes into this game without Jordan Henderson who suffered a Knee Injury against Chelsea. Frank Lampard comes into the match without Abdul baba, Ethan Ampadu and Billy Bilmour.

The Blues are under a lot more pressure when they meet Liverpool, as the three-way battle with Leicester City and Manchester United for a Champions League place. Liverpool will want to end the season properly.
