    Chelsea’s fans are delighted with their starting XI to take on Liverpool

    Liverpool welcome Maurizio Sarri’s men to Anfield in less than half an hour’s time, in a crucial matchup in the race for both the Premier League title, and a place in the English top-flight’s top-4.

    Manchester City’s victory over Crystal Palace a short time ago means that the Citizens have jumped back above Liverpool to the summit of the Premier League table.

    A 3-point haul for the Reds this evening, though, would see Jurgen Klopp’s men reclaim top spot, at least temporarily.
