Confirmed starting Xis: Liverpool vs Chelsea

In recent seasons, there has been so much riding on Chelsea’s visits to Liverpool and vice versa.

From Champions League semi-finals to FA Cup clashes and title-ending rear-guard displays, the sheer stakes surrounding this fixture over the last decade have created a unique rivalry between the Reds and the Blues that lacks basis geography or history.

But with Chelsea set to finish the campaign in mid-table and Liverpool wary of picking up any injuries ahead of their Europa League final with Sevilla, tonight’s affair looks to be a tame one in comparison to recent seasons.

That being said, the likeliest result remains open to speculation. Chelsea boast the superior form in recent encounters, winning three and drawing two of their last six meetings with the Reds, but Liverpool enter this one ten points better off in the Premier League table.

So who’ll come out on top tonight? Perhaps the official starting Xis, confirmed on Twitter just moments ago, will give as an indication of the result.
