The marquee midweek Premier League fixture is set to play out on Thursday.

Chelsea will make the trip to Anfield, for a tie which could prove to be huge in the race for a Champions League spot.

And, should the Merseysiders beat Chelsea on Thursday, they too could overtake West Ham in 4th.

As a result, this tie is, of course, of huge importance to both sides.
