Reds face critical hurdle in title bid

Chelsea head to Anfield looking to spoil Liverpool’s pursuit of the Premier League title, live on Super Sunday.

Andrew Robertson will return to the Liverpool side having been suspended for the midweek Champions League win over Porto.



That means James Milner, the Scotland captain’s stand-in on Tuesday, is available for a midfield role – giving manager Jurgen Klopp a selection dilemma as Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson have both performed well in the last two matches.

Phil Thompson: Liverpool won’t put any particular measures in place to man-mark him but they do not want him to turn and get at you because he is so difficult to stop. They need him to stop with the ball, and most naturally keep your eye on the ball rather than the man when defending.

Charlie Nicholas: I think this is the difficult part. Everybody will be looking at this game. The flashbacks will happen, as Liverpool have struggled before against Chelsea. Chelsea have to go after it for the top four. Are they that fussed for it? I think Sarri is, he wants to do as much as he can.
