Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield this weekend boasting an impressive recent record against the Premier League champions.

The Blues have not beaten Jurgen Klopp's men in the League for over three years when goals from Diego Costa and Gary Cahill sealed all three points.




Another win for the Reds this weekend will send them above their fellow title contenders, while a loss could all but end any hopes with Manchester City setting the pace at the top.

Chelsea head into Saturday's clash off the back of securing Champions League progress with a 4-0 win over Qarabag in Baku, while Liverpool let a three-goal lead slip to draw 3-3 with Sevilla in Spain.

Start time

Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield with kick-off scheduled for 5.30pm on Saturday, November 25.

Joel Matip is a doubt for the hosts with a thigh strain, though Adam Lallana should be fit as he battles a similar problem.

Nathaniel Clyne remains out with a long-term back problem.

Midfielder Can has a muscular injury that could see him miss out, but Lallana might make his first appearance of the season.

"Adam is on the way. We have to see how we handle that," said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
