Chelsea hosts Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon in a must-win encounter for the 15th-placed Blues.

Following yet another setback in the form of an League Cup defeat to Stoke during midweek, Jose Mourinho has confirmed Diego Costa and Pedro will undergo late fitness tests to determine whether they will join Branislav Ivanovic and Thibaut Courtois on the list of absentees.

Liverpool Team News

Jurgen Klopp is juggling numerous injury concerns at present with no fewer than seven first team players ruled out.

Jordan Henderson (foot), Rossiter (hamstring), Touré (hamstring), Flanagan (knee), Gomez (knee), Ings (knee) and Sturridge (knee) will all miss the trip to west London.

Liverpool Starting XI Prediction 

Mignolet | Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno | Milner, Lucas, Can, Lallana, Coutinho | Benteke

Previous Meeting

10 May 2015 – Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

The Reds formed a guard of honour to welcome Chelsea onto the pitch in the Blues' first game after being crowned Premier League champions. John Terry got the hosts off to a flyer with a trademark header five minutes in, but Steven Gerrard responded in kind on the stroke of half-time.

Score Prediction

Although I believe losing our manager would do little to ready our woes of late, there's no denying Jose Mourinho is walking a tightrope. Champions League qualification is becoming increasingly unlikely with each slip-up, and the Portuguese and his side must claim three points against Liverpool to somewhat stabilise the crisis seeping Stamford Bridge.

The Reds haven't enjoyed a fruitful start to the campaign either, but they will equally desperate to secure a much-needed win in London. Recent history is definitely on our side, though; Liverpool hasn't beaten Chelsea at home since November 2011.

This is an extremely difficult one to call, but I think we'll get a 2-1 win over a Liverpool side that's still gelling under Jurgen Klopp.
