Our prediction: Liverpool v Chelsea

This is a really tough game to call. Neither side are in particularly good form and could rotate given the heavy fixture schedule.

Regardless of the outcome, expect a tight, tactical battle between two of Europe's top managers – although, the match might not be brimming with goals given Liverpool's shyness in front of the net and Chelsea's miserly defensive record.

Neither side can afford to lose ground in the race for the Champions League spots and a draw could be the most likely outcome in this fixture.

Our prediction: Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea (13/2 at bet365)
