Fans can watch the Liverpool vs. Chelsea match live online and see what looks to be the biggest match in the Premier League this year.
Liverpool sits atop the Premier League standings with 80 points and Chelsea is in second place with 75. Though Liverpool remains in the driver’s seat, a loss could open the door for Chelsea to make a late-season move.
The match kicks off Sunday at 2:05 pm ET local time from Anfield.
With the pressure of the Premier League title on the line, Chelsea is also balancing the priorities of its run in the Champions League semi-final. With the team facing off against Atletico in the second leg on Wednesday, there is speculation that coach Jose Mourinho could rest his top players against Liverpool.
Mourinho himself is fueling much of the speculation. After a goalless draw in the first leg of the Champions League, he threatened to “play the kids” against Liverpool.
Fans who want to watch the Liverpool vs. Chelsea match live online may not know until kickoff if Mourinho will follow through.
“Wait for Sunday and on Sunday you will know our team,” he said. “The most important thing for me is my club and the supporters of my club. I have to defend my club and I have to defend Chelsea supporters.”
It could be costly if he does go through with it. Not only would the move infuriate Manchester City, who are six points behind Liverpool with a game in hand and would need a Chelsea win, but Mourinho could also be facing punishment from the Premier League or Football Association.
And if that were not enough drama, there is rising speculation that Mourinho could be tapped to take over for the fired David Moyes at the helm of Manchester United next season.
