Chelsea travel to champions Liverpool for what should be a fiery affair as the Londoners battle to secure a Premier League top-four finish.
The Blues are third on 63 points but could go four points clear of Leicester and Manchester United with a win on Merseyside going into the final game of the season.
But the Reds have had a bitter rivalry with the Blues in recent years and Jürgen Klopp’s men will be keen to put a dent in Chelsea’s Champions League qualification hopes.
Liverpool are unbeaten at home in the league this season, and dropped their first home points in their previous game at Anfield, against Burnley. They will want to end the season on a high after losing 2-1 to Arsenal last time out.
Chelsea will be full of confidence after defeating United in the FA Cup semi-final, and this is the best time to face a Liverpool side with nothing left to play for as far as trophies are concerned. However, the Reds will not want to let their incredible home record slip, and they should have enough to deny the Blues a win.
Liverpool have been odds-on against most teams for the majority of the season, but after their two-game winless run they are priced at 1/1, with Chelsea 5/2 and the draw 11/4.
