Liverpool face a tough task when they host Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday, as they enter the game on the back of a morale-sapping 3-3 draw with Sevilla.

Drawing 3-3 against Sevilla away from home might not sound bad on paper but the manner of the second-half capitulation after being 3-0 up could prove damaging to Klopp’s side.

Several players were criticised for their second-half performances that saw the game turned on its head, in particular Alberto Moreno and Jordan Henderson.

Had Liverpool held onto their lead they would have topped the group and qualified for the Round of 16. As it is they now need at least a point from their last fixture against Spartak Moscow.

By way of contrast, Chelsea had a comfortable time in their Champions League clash with FK Qarabag, winning 4-0 against the minnows of Azerbaijan.

Not only did the win guarantee their entry in to the knockout stages, but Antonio Conte was also able to rest Alvaro Morata ahead of the clash with the Reds.

The only positive for Liverpool for the week of Champions League action is that the Blues had to endure a 5000-mile trip to secure their three points.

Recent history, however, is on Liverpool’s side, after Klopp’s men beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and drew 1-1 at Anfield last season.

Football Insider has come up with a starting XI that will continue Liverpool’s dominance and secure Klopp three more points as he hunts for Liverpool’s first Premier League title.
