Soccer News – Liverpool-Chelsea
The champion Liverpool hosts Chelsea at the Anfield in a match from the 37th round of the Premier League. Let’s take our attention to this fixture.
For Liverpool this game does not mean anything at all, but for Chelsea it’s a crucial one. The Blues are desperately trying to keep their place in the Top 4 and qualify for the Champions League. At this moment they are third in the standings, but Leicester City and Manchester United are just one point behind. As you can see, Chelsea need to win at any cost at the Anfield. Otherwise, they could find themselves out of the Top 4 before the final round.
Chelsea arrive at the Anfield with high confidence and great mood. On Sunday Frank Lampard’s team qualified for the FA Cup final at the Wembley. They faced Manchester United in a 1/2-finals game and achieved a solid 3-1 win. Olivier Giroud and Mason Mount scored for the Blues, while United’s Harry Maguire scored himself an own goal. It was one of Frank Lampard’s greatest wins since he’s managing Chelsea.
For Liverpool this game on Wednesday is all about fun. The Reds already won the title, so they are just finishing their season with no pressure at all. In their last two games they won just one point which gives Chelsea some hopes for a positive result at the Anfield.
In their last match Liverpool paid a visit to Arsenal, but suffered a 1-2 loss at the Emirates. Sadio Mane scored Liverpool’s only goal in the game.
Can Chelsea take what they need against Liverpool at the Anfield? Surely we can say the champions will not play this game with a “life or death” approach because they don’t need to. It’s a crucial fixture for Chelsea, so we expect to see them super motivated on Wednesday.
