The Reds may have reached the Champions League final, but there is still work to do in the league before they head to Kiev later in the month.
Last Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to Stoke City was frustrating, and a top-four finish is not yet secured.
Elsewhere last weekend, champions Man City crushed West Ham, Man United edged out Arsenal 2-1 at Old Trafford and Chelsea and Tottenham also picked up wins, against Swansea City and Watford respectively.
There are 10 games to look forward to over the next three days, although some have far more importance than others.
Ones To Watch: Chelsea vs. Liverpool, Stoke vs. Crystal Palace & More
Three wins in succession have seen Antonio Conte’s side narrow the gap to six points with a game in hand, and another victory would crank up the pressure on Liverpool going into the final day, when they host Brighton & Hove Albion.
Jurgen Klopp knows that his side require just a draw to finish in the top four, however, and he will feel they have enough quality to achieve that goal, if not win at Stamford Bridge.
The pressure is all on Chelsea.
Only a win will do for Paul Lambert’s side, but they will be buoyed by the spirited draw at Anfield in their last fixture.
One To Avoid: Watford vs. Newcastle United
To be fair, there aren’t too many dreadful-looking games this weekend, but Watford‘s visit of Newcastle looks a real stinker.
Both teams have absolutely nothing to play for, apart from mid-table respectability, and you may as well give all 22 players a bucket and spade, considering their focus could well be on their summer holidays.
Add to that the fact that neither side is exactly famed for playing attractive attacking football, and you have the perfection candidate for our ‘One To Avoid’.
Rafa Benitez has done a superb job in steering the Magpies clear of safety, and his main focus will be on remaining in the top-half this season.
A Watford win would take them level with their opponents, so there is a little bit of meaning to the match, I suppose.
Potential Upset: West Brom vs. Tottenham
A win at Man United was followed by a 2-2 draw against Liverpool, and Saturday’s victory at Newcastle still gives them a glimmer of hope.
The Baggies welcome Spurs to the Hawthorns this weekend, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side still battling for points in the top-four scrap.
It is understandable why the visitors are resounding favourites to pick up all three points, but you wouldn’t put it beyond West Brom getting at least a share of the spoils.
Spurs are a funny side when they want to be, and if they are not fully switched on, they could easily come unstuck in the West Midlands.
Liverpool fans will be cheering on West Brom, as they cling to some hope of finishing the season in third place.
