Liverpool FC Will look to steal a Europa League berth for next season as they clash with Chelsea FC
This year has been disappointing to both Chelsea and Liverpool as it shows up on the Barclays Premier League table. In a couple of weeks the Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp is putting the team on the verge of the Champions League via the Europa League Final. That should not take away any luster off of this match. The Reds will need a win over Chelsea on Wednesday to still have a shot into the Europa League for next season if this year’s match against Sevilla goes south. The Reds are favorites to take the three points. Liverpool is just 7-7-3 this year at Anfield , but Chelsea is just 7-4-7 on the road. The matchup between Liverpool and Chelsea is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. at Anfield. The fixture will be televised on FOX Sports 1.
Chelsea is a bit frustrated right now and has been eliminated from European play for quite some time. The team captain John Terry picked up his second red card of the season against Sunderland last weekend. Terry will be suspended for the rest of the year and probably has played his final match with the Blues. Without Terry in the Fold the squad will be very young and Top Sports Blog just can’t see the Blues being that competitive against Liverpool. Liverpool has plenty of injury woes, but it’s really the depth of the team which is being tested more than the crucial players. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp knows that the Reds are right on the verge of being a truly special Premier League club once again. Klopp has two paths to get there, and he’ll want to leave nothing to chance in the Barclays Premier League. We think this fixture is going to go the Reds way for sure at Anfield.

Liverpool Prepares for an Anfield Showdown with Villarreal
Liverpool find themselves in a hole that they have to climb out of in order to get into the Champions League next season. The Reds now need to win over Villarreal in the semifinals of the Europa League and either beat Sevilla or Shakhtar Donetsk in the finale in a few weeks. The first meeting last week between these two teams ended up in the 1-0 Villarreal triumph at El Madrigal. The Reds task at hand won’t be easy against Villarreal a very good Spanish team competing in European tournaments still. The Reds are the favorites in this one, and they’ll have to score that victory in regulation time if they want any chance to advance to the finale. A 1-0 win by Liverpool will send this game into extra time, while a two-goal or better victory for Liverpool would be enough to advance. The matchup between Liverpool and Villarreal is scheduled at 3:05 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at Anfield. The fixture will be televised on FOX Sports 1.
This has to be one of the biggest matches to date at Liverpool. The one thing that the Liverpool manager Jürgen Norbert Klopp has on his side is a roster stacked with plenty of options. Klopp has been resting forward Daniel Sturridge to keep him rested in these European cup matches. It will be interesting to see what the starting formation for Liverpool looks like. If Klopp is going for it, this could be a match where the Reds get the desired result. Villarreal hasn’t been near as good on the road as it has been at home. The Spaniards haven’t been beaten at El Madrigal in the Europa League, but on the road, there have been some problems. Top Sports Blog thinks the Liverpool manager Klopp will make the right choices here and erase that 1-0 deficit and advance to the Europa League Final.

English Premier League – Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur still has to think it has a shot of reaching the top of the Premier League. This soccer match at Liverpool will be a tough one especially with the Reds still clinging to European hopes. The Reds are hosting this event, but they’re going against one of the best three teams in England right now. Neither side is a an odds-on favorite with just a slight edge going to Liverpool. The 31st match for league 2nd place holder Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, who are on 9th place currently with 44 points after 29 matches, will take place on Saturday, April 2, 2016, at 12:30 p.m. at Anfield. The soccer match will be televised on NBC.
Tottenham Hotspur easily beat Bournemouth and Aston Villa in their last two domestic soccer matches, however Leicester City keeps winning and that putting the Premier League title more in doubt. The Spurs have finished the job against the teams which they should be beating, but they aren’t playing at their best against the best teams in England. Tottenham never had a shot against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League, but they have been impressive in the Premier League. The Spurs lost Nabil Bentaleb two weeks ago to a knee injury that might cost him the rest of the season. That’s a devastating blow to a squad which had stayed relatively injury-free for much of the campaign. Ben Davies has a facial laceration, but we’d bet he plays for Mauricio Pochettino on Saturday in such an important match. Jan Vertonghen is close to returning from a knee injury, but he won’t likely be ready for this match.
Liverpool has not been playing up to their potential right now after blowing that game at St. Mary’s Stadium two weeks ago. Liverpool was beaten 3-2 against Southampton after leading 2-1 late in the game and Christian Benteke missed an easy chance. That ended a run of eight straight matches with at least a point for the Reds. In a soccer match which is expected to be this close, the only result we could possibly forecast is a draw.
