Morale has plummeted since the turn of the year with just one win in eight matches, and having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves on Saturday.
But victory would close the gap between the Reds, who start the day in fourth, and table-topping Chelsea to seven points, and perhaps even more importantly, would be the confidence boost that has been desperately lacking recently.
Chelsea, however, have won 13 of their last 14 games in all competitions and victory for the visitors would all but end Liverpool’s faint hopes of a title challenge.
It promises to be an exciting contest — a largely all or nothing situation for Jurgen Klopp’s side. It’s one not to be missed.
The match gets underway at 8pm GMT — that’s 3pm New York, 12noon California, 7am (Wednesday) Sydney, 4am (Wednesday) Singapore, Midnight (Wednesday) Dubai and 11pm in Nairobi.
