Liverpool vs Chelsea: preview
Two straight Premier League losses have left Liverpool down in ninth, a full 10 points adrift of the Champions League places, in a miserable start to 2023 for the Reds.
A 3-1 reverse at Brentford on 2 January was followed by a 3-0 thumping away to Brighton on Saturday - and, to make things worse, key defender Virgil van Dijk was sidelined by a hamstring injury in the first of those defeats.
Liverpool did pick up an FA Cup win over Wolves on Tuesday, though, Harvey Elliott’s goal earning victory at Molineux in the sides’ third-round replay.
Lying level on points with Liverpool, 10th-placed Chelsea are in even worse form than their hosts. Indeed, the Blues’ Premier League triumph over Crystal Palace on Sunday was their first win in their last five games - a sequence of results that includes a 4-0 FA Cup hammering by Manchester City.
Seven Chelsea players are definitely out of the trip to Anfield due to injury, while loan signing João Félix is suspended after his debut red card in last week’s defeat to Fulham.
However, head coach Graham Potter could hand a maiden run-out to new signing Mykhailo Mudryk, who has arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth up to around $110m.
