Normal for title-chasing Liverpool to feel heat - Chelsea's Sarri

Normal for title-chasing Liverpool to feel heat - Chelsea's Sarri”

But Mignolet, in goal for that game and one of only three Reds' survivors along with Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, stressed the circumstances are entirely different.

"We are a lot more solid than we were back then so in that sense everyone is a lot more confident in getting the job done unlike back in the day against Chelsea".

Chelsea will be looking to spoil Liverpool's title hopes yet again.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of Sunday's clash with Chelsea, Klopp revealed that as long as his other centre-halves remain fit it's doubtful Gomez will return to the first-team picture before the end of the season. It's the same as Crystal Palace previous year when they were safe and had nothing to play for, they went and played at Stoke and sent them down by winning.

Chelsea have endured an indifferent campaign under Maurizio Sarri this season but Hazard, who has been in scintillating form of late, says the Blues have the potential to beat any side they face. Every year we need to start thinking at the start of the season we can win a trophy.

City's desperation to win the Champions League means they can not go out against Tottenham on home soil on Wednesday night, so it wouldn't surprise me if Guardiola holds a few of his ace cards back at Selhurst Park today with that game in mind.

Asked how he plans to stop the brilliant Belgian this weekend, Klopp joked: "We will take 13 players, and two will play only against Eden". React a little bit better than other teams did.

"But like all good players, he has to play against us, and we try everything to deny at least a couple of his skills". You try to read the game, read the passes, but in the end, in a one-vs-one situation, you can not defend him.

"I like footballers like this".

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".
