The race for the top four in the Premier League sees a key clash on Thursday night, with Liverpool hoping to win at Anfield for the first time since before Christmas.

They face Chelsea, with the Blues in fifth and the Reds sixth at the start of the day’s matches - but a win for either would put them into fourth, with West Ham not playing this midweek.

Jurgen Klopp’s team beat bottom side Sheffield United at the weekend, their first win in five, while Chelsea drew 0-0 with second-place Manchester United in their own game, a second successive draw.
