The Premier League trophy is at Anfield for Liverpool's game against Chelsea

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has unfinished business with Chelsea

Five years ago Chelsea played a pivotal role in ending Liverpool's Premier League ambitions when a run of 11 consecutive Premier League victories was ended at Anfield.

If you're hoping to see Joe Gomez play for Liverpool again this season you may be left disappointed, with Jurgen Klopp describing the situation as "very hard".

The sides have met twice so far this season with both games coming in September.

"I didn't feel sorry for him", the Istanbul Basaksehir forward told The Sun. I'm not a Liverpool supporter.

Chelsea, who started the season in excellent form, are in a battle to hold off Arsenal and Man Utd in a battle for 4th place and the lucrative involvement in the Champions League.

"It's all part of the game". Liverpool have failed to beat them during the past six Premier League games played between the two teams at the ground.

Eden Hazard has also been turning it on - how can you forget his strike against West Ham - but one man who will relish stopping Hazard in his tracks is Fabinho.

Ba was not a regular for Jose Mourinho's side that season, but nor were numerous players who started the game at Anfield.

The Basaksehir striker referred to the team that day as reserves adding, "I would say he put the reserve team out".

The second change for Liverpool also comes in defence, with Joel Matip returning to the starting XI, after not featuring against Porto in the midweek. He was very motivated to win that game.

Their FA Cup wins against Swansea and Brighton were unconvincing, they struggled in their home match against Cardiff last week and Liverpool can take encouragement from City's slowdown as injuries and their hectic fixture schedule catches up with them.
