Liverpool will lift the Premier League trophy at Anfield on Wednesday night—but first they have a game to play against Chelsea.

The Reds were confirmed as champions nearly a month ago and will receive their silverware after their final home match of the season.

Chelsea are in a great position to secure a top-four finish and Champions League football, but still need one win from their last two matches to do so.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

They beat Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend, so it could be a fantastic end to the season for Frank Lampard and his side.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match.

Liverpool are without captain Jordan Henderson and centre-back Joel Matip. James Milner should recover from a knock, as should Dejan Lovren. Xherdan Shaqiri returned to play a late cameo role in the last game.

Chelsea may rotate after their FA Cup semi-final win at the weekend saw them revert to 3-4-3. Fikayo Tomori and Billy Gilmour are injured, while N’Golo Kante is a doubt.

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Keita, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

Chelsea: Kepta; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Willian, Giroud, Pulisic.

Much depends on the two teams’ mentalities and ability to avoid errors, as the Reds will want a party after a victory but Chelsea have more to play for on the day.
