Liverpool welcome Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League at Anfield on Wednesday, May 11, starting 8 PM GMT.
Jurgen Klopp’s team would like to go above the sixth-placed Southampton, should they beat the Blues, and register European qualification via the League. As per the Premier League reports, the Reds still have three BPL matches left and the Europa League final against Sevilla.
“It’s how it is when you are at home, really strong and don’t give points away,” Klopp said after Sunday’s 2-0 win at home to Watford.
“I want to be, in the future, really consistent in all the games. For this, we need a little bit of time.
“When I came here, we had a little problem at home, it was not too easy to win. We know Anfield is a special place.”
For Chelsea, John Terry is out due to a suspension as coach Guus Hiddink looks to bring Branislav Ivanovic in place of Terry.
