Liverpool’s top 4 place will be severely under pressure should they get beaten when they visit Chelsea on Sunday.

The Blues will close the gap between the two sides to just three points with a victory.

A single point would all but end Conte’s champions league charge for this season, needing 4 points from their last two fixtures and overturning a huge goal difference between them and 4th place.

Liverpool suffered defeat in midweek, a 4-2 loss to Roma but progressed to the Champions League final 7-6 on aggregate.

Mohammed Salah leads the way for goals in the Premier League with 31 in this competition alone.
