As for Chelsea, the defending Premier League champions have endured a difficult campaign that now finds them in a battle to secure a top-four finish come the end of the season. In their 30 domestic matchups this year, Antonio Conte’s side have won 17, drawn five and lost eight, scoring 52 goals in the Premier League this year, the Blues have conceded 27 in return and their tally of 56 points finds them sat outside of the Champions League qualifying positions. Now in fifth spot, Conte’s side are chasing down a four-point deficit to Liverpool and their recent form has left room for concern. Chelsea have won two of their last five matches in all competitions.
