KloppLiverpool will look to continue their winning form when Chelsea visit Anfield for the penultimate game of the season on Wednesday night (May 11). The hosts are eighth in the table but still harbour hopes of finishing in European qualification places. There’s enough incentive for them on the fixture with a win potentially taking them as high as sixth. It’s not the same with the Blues who have seen their season end in a whimper but don’t count them out of this contest.

Jurgen Klopp has engineered a silent revolution at Anfield with the Reds slowly getting to terms with his playing style. Progress to the Europa League final has already underlined his influence on the team. With just two games remaining in the season, Klopp would like to build his side towards the big final on May 18th.

Liverpool made eight changes for the weekend win against Watford and could use the match to rest some of their regulars. Joe Allen impressed for the Reds and should start once again, Daniel Sturridge could continue to push for a starting place while Cristian Benteke is another option for the hosts.

While the Reds have the Europa League Final to juggle, the Blues have nothing but pride to play for. Guus Hiddink will have to make do without his captain John Terry who is suspended after picking up a red in the last match. The Dutch tactician will be worried about his porous defence that squandered leads twice to lose 3-2 at Sunderland on Saturday.

Some of the Chelsea players are playing for their careers with the impending arrival of new manager Antonio Conte who could axe many tiring stars. Eden Hazard and Diego Costa had very ordinary seasons and would be eager to finish on a high.

Liverpool are undefeated in 12 matches at Anfield under Klopp – a run which saw them trounce Manchester City, Manchester United and Everton in the Premier League and Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal in Europa League. Another Liverpool win at odds of $2.00 at Sportsbet looks the betting play here.

Watch out for goals from either side with Diego Costa and Daniel Sturridge looking good to score for their teams at any time in the match. There could be an early goal too, as four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen a goal inside 10 minutes.
