There was little to split Chelsea and Liverpool in the league so far this season, with the first match at Anfield being a 1-1 draw despite Tuchel's men being reduced to ten men.

Liverpool then travelled to Stamford Bridge in January in the league, going 2-0 up in the first half. However, Chelsea pegged them back to 2-2 before the break as the match ended 2-2.

It appears that both teams will have to surrender the Premier League title to Pep Guardiola's Man City but will fight it out for the Carabao Cup in February's final at Wembley.

Tuchl is searching for his first domestic title with Chelsea after last season's Champions League triumph.
