Team News:
Liverpool face the toughest of their remaining Premier League title tests on Sunday afternoon as they take on third-placed Chelsea at Anfield.
The Reds have won four matches in a row to reclaim top spot, albeit having played a game more than Manchester City, but they have a poor record against this weekend's opponents.

Liverpool will welcome back left-back Andrew Robertson from a suspension that ruled him out of the midweek Champions League win over Porto.
Joe Gomez was named on the bench on Tuesday and is in line for a first appearance since early December, though Dejan Lovren performed well at the back against Porto after ousting Joel Matip.

Klopp's biggest selection dilemma is in central midfield, where Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson have performed well in recent matches, which will likely mean James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and the fit-again Adam Lallana being overlooked for selection.

Roberto Firmino has scored seven goals in his last six Premier League home games for Liverpool, meanwhile, though he has only faced Man United (eight) and Everton (seven) more often than Chelsea (five) without finding the net in the top flight.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane

As for the visitors, they are expected to rotate once again after making seven changes to their starting lineup against Slavia Prague on Thursday.

Key man Hazard was among those to be left out from the off and should return on Sunday, and Callum Hudson-Odoi will also be raring to go after missing out on the square entirely through tiredness.

Hazard has had a hand in more goals than any other Premier League player this season (28 - 16 goals and 12 assists).
Emerson Palmieri will have to be assessed as he is carrying a knock, but he should be fine and Sarri otherwise has a full selection of first-team players to choose from.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek; Hudson-Odoi, Higuain, Hazard
Recent form in Premier League: WDLWWW
Recent form (all competitions): WLWWWW
