Liverpool vs Chelsea preview: K.O time, team news, H2H record for the PL clash

Liverpool sits at the top of the Premier League table and will give everything to win and increase the 5-point gap between them and the others in their clash at home against Chelsea. After the German manager himself announced his departure from the Liverpool managerial role at the end of the current season, the Liverpool players would be desperate to provide a good showing in the last few matches left under the manager.

On the other hand, despite having spent a plethora of money on signings, Chelsea has been having a struggling season. A number of coaches have been hired and sacked, but the club is still looking for stability and success under the current manager, Mauricio Pochettino. Under the Argentine, the club has at least found a brilliant run-of-form at home, but their away form has been surprisingly opposite, which could be a crucial factor in the upcoming away game.

Liverpool vs Chelsea time, venue

Liverpool and Chelsea are set to battle for three massive points at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool. While these points will help Liverpool maintain the lead at the top, they can also help the Blues stay in contention for the Champions League spots. This fixture is going to turn out to be a really fun and massive game to watch for every fan around the world.

Liverpool vs. Chelsea is scheduled to kick off at 8:15 p.m. GMT on January 31, 2024, Wednesday. It won’t be their first meeting this season since they already played a reverse fixture in the Premier League on August 13, 2023, at Stamford Bridge, in which they drew 1-1 with the goals coming from Alex Disasi and Luiz Diaz.

Liverpool vs Chelsea team news

The Reds have dealt a serious blow to their squad with the recent injury to Mohamad Salah in the AFCON cup, but the return of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, and Dominik Szoboszlai from recent injuries boasts well for Klopp’s side.

On the other hand, the Blues might face difficulty in this case, with prominent figures out injured and suspended. Christopher Nkunku and Malo Gusto are back in training, but Levi Colwill, the 20-year-old starlet, is ruled out for the game. Chelsea’s absentee list includes Nicolas Jackson, who is still on international duty.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the Blues already have a disadvantage in the game due to so many absentees.
