Chelsea are aiming to bounce back from having dropped points in our goalless draw against Manchester United on Sunday while Liverpool head into the game looking to make it back to back wins after beating Sheffield United 2-0.

The Reds had lost four games in a row in the Premier League before their win over the Blades while Chelsea are unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel.

Mark Lawrenson has backed Liverpool and Chelsea to play out a 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Thursday night.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “Chelsea don’t concede many goals, but they don’t score many either.

“Their new manager Thomas Tuchel has kind of done steps one and two, which were to tighten them up at the back, and stop conceding.

“Now he has got to work out step three, which is make them more of a goal threat.

“Liverpool got back to winning ways at Sheffield United on Sunday, but this is a much bigger test. I think they will be quite happy with a point.”
