Chelsea will be looking to hunt down Liverpool in the race for UEFA Champions League qualification when the pair meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues currently trail Jurgen Klopp’s men by six points and must win if they are to give themselves any chance of playing in European football’s premier competition next season.

Chelsea go into the match with no new injury concerns. Long term absentees David Luiz and Ethan Ampadu remain sidelined with their respective injury problems with the latter not expected to return until next season.

There is some better news for Blues boss Antonio Conte. Left wing-back Marcos Alonso is available again following suspension while midfielder Danny Drinkwater has overcome his recent injury woes.

Liverpool arrive in SW6 having secured their place in this season’s UEFA Champions League final courtesy of a dramatic 7-6 aggregate victory over Italian club AS Roma in their semi-final tie.

Defender Joe Gomez is a doubt ahead of the match and will be assessed while The Reds will definitely be missing the quartet of Joel Matip, Emre Can, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 4.30pm on Sunday afternoon and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
