Both teams need to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League alive by winning this game. They're both heavyweights in the EPL with limited success.
A crucial match in the English Premier League takes place on Saturday at Anfield; Chelsea faces Liverpool in a crucial game that proves this season's two worst performing teams.
Both teams are accustomed to fighting for the English Premier League title. However, they’ve found themselves in unfamiliar territory by battling for a middle-of-the-table position. A defeat for either team is likely to deal a knockout blow to their efforts of capturing fourth place and a spot in the lucrative and prestigious UEFA Champions League.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is currently comforted by the success of his team in the FA Cup. After losing 3-0 to Brighton last weekend, Klopp saw his side win against Wolves in the competition. As a result, the return to health of striker Darwin Núñez will offer a significant offensive boost for Liverpool. Many key players — like Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota — are sidelined with injuries and can't be deployed by Klopp.
The Chelsea injury crisis is severe, with at least nine regular starters unavailable. Among them are Raheem Sterling, N'Golo Kanté and Christian Pulisic. The Blues also lost their new loan signing Joao Félix after he was sent off on his debut in the West London derby loss to Fulham last week.
