The Premier League trophy is at Anfield for Liverpool's game against Chelsea

Hazard and Berbatov

As a Liverpool man, I'd be very confident of Jurgen Klopp's men getting a vital win against Chelsea today, but the Hazard factor is the one element that could change all that.

Liverpool's game against Chelsea is the toughest fixture remaining on the Reds' schedule and they'll be desperate to avoid a repeat of the meeting at Anfield in 2014.

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson will return to the side for the visit of Chelsea having been suspended for the midweek Champions League win over Porto.

Before Thursday's defeat to Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League, Manchester City hadn't lost a match since a 2-1 loss at Newcastle at the end of January. It's the same as Crystal Palace a year ago when they were safe and had nothing to play for, they went and played at Stoke and sent them down by winning.

"It is down to us to stop that".

Liverpool are under pressure as they bid to end a 29-year wait for an English league trophy but can help themselves by embracing the challenge in the home stretch of the campaign, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said. He had a brilliant career, and it's not over.


"I like footballers like this".

"The best way to try to make sure that he can not shine is to avoid passes to him".

"But like all good players, he has to play against us, and we try everything to deny at least a couple of his skills". React a little bit better than other teams did.

You don't need reminding about how that one went.

Then we saw what he can do as he produced a sensational winning goal in the League Cup game against Liverpool at Anfield earlier this season, with his class shining through in a tie that was evenly balanced heading into the closing stages.
