Chelsea - Premier League - 14 April 2019

Hazard and Berbatov Chelsea have been urged to keep hold of Eden Hazard at all costs
Noah Ferguson | 14 April, 2019, 20:57

There is plenty of history here, Chelsea having derailed Liverpool's last genuine title challenge in that game when Steven Gerrard slipped over at Anfield to gift Demba Ba that goal.

The trophy was brought to Anfield for the game against Chelsea, being shown by the pitch as Sky Sports previewed Sunday's games.

Hazard could well be that man and if he does leave Chelsea, they will have a huge problem trying to replace him because the evidence of this season suggests they have effectively become a one-man team. In addition, Joe Gomez is available after a long injury layoff while Adam Lallana is expected to take part as well.

The terrific trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all start for Liverpool, with Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri the options from the bench. They now sit two points ahead of Manchester City, who have a game in hand and face Crystal Palace earlier in the day. "It's not about frustrating Liverpool, it's about playing our game".

Before Thursday's defeat to Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League, Manchester City hadn't lost a match since a 2-1 loss at Newcastle at the end of January.

Palace missed a late penalty to beat City last season in this fixture and if they can score first today, Guardiola's side will be under big pressure to respond. "But these coaches, especially Eddie, see things differently and that's where you can really improve". Joel Matip has shown admirable form alongside Virgil van Dijk and that is most likely to be the partnership the Reds will go with as they pursue the Premier League and Champions League.

Meanwhile for Man City, Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane could inject some freshness back into the squad after sitting out the past couple of games.
