Liverpool head into their five remaining league games of the season with a four-point deficit to make up on Chelsea.
Jürgen Klopp’s Reds have dropped points in their last two fixtures – both games ending with a 1-1 scoreline – away to Leeds and, most recently, at home to Newcastle.
Liverpool are currently sixth, one point behind West Ham and four off Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea. Spurs are one point behind The Reds. All four teams have played 33 matches of the 38-game season.
Up next for Klopp and co this weekend is a trip to Old Trafford to play second-placed Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side has not lost a league game since Sheffield United won 2-1 in Manchester in late January. They have only suffered one defeat in their last 21 fixtures in all competitions at the time of writing. United face Roma at home tonight in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final so Liverpool will have the fresher legs when the teams meet on Sunday.
On Saturday week, Southampton visit Anfield in Liverpool’s penultimate home game of the season. Liverpool lost 1-0 to The Saints in their first game of 2021 when Danny Ings scored the only goal of the match after only two minutes.
