Liverpool vs Chelsea

Probable starting eleven:Liverpool: Mignolet; Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan; Allen, Gerrard, Coutinho; Sterling, Sturridge, SuarezChelsea:Hilario; Kalas, Christensen, Mikel, Ake; Matic, Van Ginkel; Salah, Lampard, Schurrle; Eto’oThis is the crucial match for Liverpool in the battle for the Premiership title. The Reds secured the 11th successive Premier League victory and they are closing in on a club record of 12 straight league wins, set between April and October 1990. Nevertheless, this match is crucial as a victory here could see them very close to the title. But it won’t be easy as Chelsea are also a good team leaded by the best manager in the World – Jose Mourinho. It doesn’t matter whether Chelsea play the reserves or the regulars, they will try to take a positive result from Anfield. It is true the guests will be weakened. The goalkeeper Petr Cech is out with a shoulder injury, the defender John Terry ia out with an ankle injury. That’s not all, the midfielder Eden Hazard will miss the match through a calf injury, while the midfielder Ramires is suspended for striking Sebastian Larsson on the previous match against Sunderland. However, we should not underestimate Chelsea. Four regulars will surely play. Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are ineligible to play in UEFA Champions League, so they will start at Anfield. In addition, Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel are suspended for the match against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, so they will play here. But Liverpool manager Brandon Rodgers also has injury and suspension worries. The striker Daniel Sturridge is doubtful with a hamstring injury, while Luis Enrique is definitely sidelined with a knee injury. On-loan winger Victor Moses is ineligible against his parent club, while the midfielder Jordan Henderson is serving his second of a three-match ban. It is clear Liverpool are also handicapped. The last mutual games between Liverpool and Chelsea have finished with balanced results – one win for each side, plus two draws. Here are the results:29.12.2013. Chelsea – Liverpool 2:1 21.04.2013.
