Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield for the penultimate clash of the 2015/16 Premier League season on Wednesday (11 May).
Where to Watch Live
Kick-off is set for 8pm BST. Live TV coverage is available Sky Sports 2 and 2 HD. Radio coverage will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Liverpool will take on Chelsea where a win will benefit the Reds more than the recently deposed league champions. The Merseyside club are battling Southampton and West Ham United for a place in the top six and if they win both their games and their rivals drop points they can qualify for the Europa League next season. However, if they win the Europa League final against Sevilla next week (18 May) it will be inconsequential as they will get direct entry into the group stages of the Champions League.
Chelsea on the other hand will finish in the ninth place, which they currently occupy with a win or a draw as they are 10 points behind Liverpool in the eighth, but are level on points with Stoke City in 10th place, but the Potters have played a game more than the Blues.
Jurgen Klopp's team are in form and come into the match following victories in the Europa League and the Premier League and will be favourites against the Blues, who lost to relegation battlers Sunderland over the weekend. Guus Hiddink will hope that he can motivate the players for the final two games and end his reign with wins before Antonio Conte takes over next season.
What Managers Say
Jurgen Klopp: It's how it is when you are at home, really strong and don't give points away. I want to be, in the future, really consistent in all the games. For this we need a little bit of time. When I came here, we had a little problem at home, it was not too easy to win. We know Anfield is a special place."
Guus Hiddink: We should have coped. Sunderland felt the energy of the crowd but it's worse that we let them stay in it by not killing the game off. It made them a little more energetic in the second half. In the first half Sunderland had maybe three or four chances. You can say they wanted it desperately, but we wanted to win of course. There was a little lack of sharpness in finishing it off. I think that was maybe the difference. When you take too much time, you start thinking but then the moment is over.
