Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool can’t afford any more slip ups in the race for the title, while Chelsea need to get something to keep in with a chance of finishing inside the top 4.

Even though a win for Liverpool is vital, a Manchester City win is far from assured this weekend. Pep’s team travel to Crystal Palace, City only managed a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park last season, and they lost at home to the Eagles 3-2 this season.
In the fixture between Chelsea and Liverpool earlier this season, the Blues were unlucky to only come away with a point. After having the better of the fixture, Daniel Sturridge scored a late equaliser to deny Chelsea all three points, with the match finishing all square at 1-1.

Liverpool V Chelsea Betting Predictions
- Even though I believe Chelsea’s odds look a touch too long at 4/1, it is still hard to see anything other than a Liverpool win.
- It’s very hard to see Chelsea winning the match, given recent patchy form. Beware the draw though.
- Eden Hazard has been in scintillating form lately, and could be a good bet to be man of the match.
- Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has shown signs of a return to form lately. He could be a good shout to be an anytime goalscorer today.
