Fantasy Football: EPL – Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview

FOOTBALL - EPL - LIVERPOOL vs CHELSEA

The newly-crowned English Premier League champions Liverpool will celebrate their title officially, but this match is all the more vital for Chelsea. The visitors will look for points, as the race for top-four spots promises to go to the final day. Chelsea are 3rd with 63 points, but should Manchester United beat West Ham, they could start this match at 4th.

Liverpool will lift the title at full time, but Jurgen Klopp’s men will be completely geared up for this contest. The Reds haven’t lost at home this league campaign and will be keen to stay that way. Chelsea need to stay ahead of Leicester City and Manchester United – both one point behind.

Liverpool Preview

The hosts will be chasing a 31st win of the league campaign, a club record. It would also mark an unbeaten home season for Liverpool and equal the best Premier League home record with 18 wins and a draw. However, they have lost three of their last nine league matches.

Mo Salah will be looking to notch up another goal, as he chases a 20th goal of the season. By doing so, Salah will become the first Liverpool player to score 20 goals in three seasons. Keep an eye on Roberto Firmino, who has been playing well without scoring goals.

Chelsea Preview

The Blues have been erratic all season long, but the FA Cup finalists still are in the top-four positions. However, a loss here will mark only the second time since 2003 that Chelsea would have lost 12 Premier League matches in a campaign. Either way, they are bound to concede goals, as Chelsea have already conceded 49.

Among the visiting players, Olivier Giroud remains a strong pick. The French forward has scored five goals in six starts since resumption. Christian Pulisic is another name that props up, as Chelsea’s midfield will be under the spotlight.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Mo Salah needs one more goal to become the first Liverpool player to score 20 Premier League goals in three seasons. His scoring thirst makes him a very good fantasy pick.

Christian Pulisic has settled well into the Chelsea side. His energy down the flanks is something that can’t be ignored.

Willian has been really good for Chelsea in the recent matches. His clever runs behind the striker could turn out to be massive for their chances.
