Anfield will be the centre of attention when Liverpool and Chelsea go head to head in the Premier League derby on Matchday 22. The Reds aim to build on a 5-2 FA Cup win over Norwich City and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minted approach against Mauro Pochettino’s troops. Virgil van Dijk is widely expected to return to the starting XI as well as fellow defender Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, while Mohamed Salah remains in the recovery room. Wataru Endo is still on international duty with Japan.

The Blues, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Aston Villa at the weekend. Chelsea aim to move closer to the Europa League berth, but given Liverpool’s three-game winning run in the Premier League, home victory should be considered. Nicolas Jackson is representing Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations, while all Christopher Nkunku, Marc Cucurella, Reece James, Trevoh Chalobah, and Robert Sanchez remain in the recovery room.

Prediction: 2-1 (Liverpool)

Liverpool

The Merseyside team coped well without their leader in attack, Mohamed Salah, in the last match of the English Premier League. In round 21, Liverpool played at the Vitality Stadium against Bournemouth and made the difference after the break. The Reds scored all four unanswered goals after the break. With 48 points, Liverpool leads the English Championship and is five points ahead of Man City, Arsenal and Aston Villa. In the last cup performances, the team also pleased its fans. Last week, Liverpool defeated Norwich 5:2 and reached the 1/8 finals of the FA Cup, and also beat Fulham 3:2 on aggregate to reach the final stage of the League Cup.

Chelsea

Liverpool will play Chelsea in the English League Cup final. The London team played two matches against Middlesbrough in the semi-finals of the tournament. The first away game against representatives of the Championship ended in a defeat for the Londoners 0:1. At his home Stamford Bridge, Mauricio Pochettino's team left no chance for their opponents and won a landslide victory 6:1. The last opponent of the “aristocrats” in the English Premier League was Fulham – a victory with a score of 1:0.
