League meetings with Liverpool (five draws, four defeats), beating them 1-0 in May 2018 thanks to an Olivier Giroud strike.

This will be our 89th game at Anfield and will equal, with Goodison Park, the most games played at an away ground in our history.

In the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge in September, Liverpool won 2-1 with both goals coming in the first half-hour from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino. N’Golo Kante pulled one back after 71 minutes.
