THE PREDICTION

There is no doubting that Liverpool have taken their foot off the gas recently and that was particularly evident in their loss to Arsenal with uncharacteristic defensive lapses costing them. If Jurgen Klopp is unable to wipe out that complacency then a Chelsea side gunning for the Champions League spots could take full advantage. However, another flat display from the hosts – on the day that they finally get their hands on the long-awaited Premier League trophy – does seem unlikely so Chelsea could face a side looking to respond here. Liverpool have beaten Chelsea in three different competitions this season but this one looks more likely to see the points shared.
