Liverpool vs Chelsea: Premier League preview and predictions

Tuchel has enjoyed an excellent start but is now in the midst of a much tougher run of fixtures and will no doubt be hoping for better than Sunday’s dour 0-0 draw with Manchester United in what is a crucial fixture in the race for Champions League qualification. 

The Reds returned to winning ways following the disappointment of a first Merseyside derby defeat at Anfield in a generation by beating Sheffield United 2-0 on Sunday evening. 

But this will be a far bigger test of Jurgen Klopp’s side as they look to salvage their season by making the top four. 

Date, kick-off time and venue

Liverpool vs Chelsea is scheduled for an 8:15pm kick-off on Thursday, March 4, 2021.

The game will take place behind closed doors at Anfield because of current coronavirus restrictions.
