In this classic encounter, the league leaders Liverpool will host the troubled Chelsea at Anfield for a match scheduled to kick off at 3:15 pm (ET).

Liverpool

As previously announced, Jurgen Klopp will leave the helm of the team at the end of the season after 7 years with the club. Despite the "farewell atmosphere," the team is very grateful for everything the coach has brought to the club, winning the Premier League and Champions League during his tenure.

Liverpool, leading with a 5-point advantage despite having played one more game, sees this as an opportunity to conclude the era on a high note by clinching the Premier League title. There's also a chance for a historic treble if they secure the FA Cup and Europa League titles.

To achieve this, Liverpool will continue without Salah, the team's star player. In addition to him, Matip, Tsimikas, Thiago Alcântara, Bajcetic, and Endo are also sidelined. The good news is the return of Arnold, Robertson, and Szoboszlai.

Chelsea

On the visiting side is the turbulent Chelsea team, which, since Roman Abramovich had to sell the club, has not been the same under new ownership. The team will have to rely on cup competitions to return to continental competition, as their Premier League standing is challenging, currently in 9th place with fierce competition for European spots.

In addition to poor results, the medical department of the team is continuously occupied. The team has 10 players sidelined, with 3 of them in doubt. At least 4 of these players could have been in the starting lineup.

Despite being a classic, even without Salah, Liverpool is a much more cohesive team than Pochettino's Chelsea, which is already under scrutiny in the team's leadership.

Considering all this, this season could have an emotional ending for Liverpool, with numerous opportunities in this final stretch. Securing 3 points at Anfield in this classic is crucial for the team to maintain a strong position in the league.
