TOP MANAGERS: Klopp and Tuchel face off as Liverpool and Chelsea chase top four

 

Two of the top managers in world football clash when Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea meet at Anfield.

Tuchel took charge of Chelsea after the club sacked club legend Frank Lampard.

He's yet to suffer defeat in charge of the Stamford Bridge outfit ahead of their trip to Merseyside.

Fellow countryman Klopp has been in charge of Liverpool since 2015 but the club are currently in a slump.

Upturn in form

 

They've dropped to sixth in the table after being top at Christmas.

Klopp hopes an upturn in form is coming after the Reds beat Sheffield United to cut a run of four defeats.

The Reds have lost their last four home league games though, which is as many as they suffered in their first 100 games under Klopp

Last year, Chelsea lost 5-3 at Anfield on the night Liverpool lifted the Premier League trophy.

The Reds have actually won all four of their recent league meetings with Chelsea.

 

Champions League

 

Both clubs are aspiring to reach the Champions League via a top four finish this season.

A Liverpool win would jump them above Chelsea and put them in the driving seat.

Chelsea could extinguish any building momentum for the Reds should they win at Anfield.

Two top managers of two top sides should hopefully make for one top game.
