Chelsea in midweek, traveled to Anfield on coronation day for Liverpool and the Reds were 3-0 up before a goal in first half stoppage time.
The Blues have now lost three of their last four away games, conceding 38 goals away from home this season. This game is at home where they’ve been much better under Frank Lampard.
Given that third place Manchester United and fifth place Leicester City play each other, Chelsea need just a draw to secure top four.
The only way Chelsea can miss out on the Champions League is if they were to lose this one and that game at the King Power finishes all square.
The FA Cup Final against Arsenal in just six days time.
Wolves, their hopes of a top four finish are over but they took a big step towards UEFA Europa League qualification on Monday night.
They welcomed Crystal Palace to Molineux and it took until just before half time to make the breakthrough.
Wolves have taken 16 points from a possible 24 but defeats to Arsenal and Burnley ended their top four ambitions. They are in sixth place which is the last league position that guarantees European football, regardless of what happens in next weekend’s FA Cup final.
Tottenham are just one point behind but a victory here would ensure Wolves are back in Europe next season. On 6 August, they’ll welcome Olympiacos to the Midlands with the score at 1-1 from the first leg.
The winners will face Sevilla or Roma in the quarter-finals with a potential semi-final clash with Manchester United after that.
