Liverpool vs Chelsea live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League match

Liverpool currently sit top of the Premier League table and welcome familiar rivals Chelsea to Anfield for what should be a high-octane midweek clash.

Following Jurgen Klopp’s shock announcement that he will be departing the club this summer, Liverpool secured a convincing victory over Norwich City at the weekend, firing them into the FA Cup fifth round.

As well as having league ramifications, their meeting with Chelsea also serves as an early taster for when the two sides go head-to-head in the EFL Cup final on February 25.

Wednesday’s encounter could be a huge test of Liverpool’s claim to the Premier League title, as both Manchester City and Arsenal are in hot pursuit of Klopp’s men.

Liverpool have maintained an impressive record at home, having not suffered a Premier League defeat at Anfield in the past 15 months. On the flip side, Chelsea have just one victory in their last five away league matches.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates and commentary. Check back here for the latest updates.

Liverpool vs Chelsea live score, updates, highlights from Premier League

60th minute: Nkunku is flagged offside after finding bags of space in behind. Another wasted chance for the away side.  

50th minute: What a waste of money Mykhailo Mudryk is turning out to be. Gusto bursts down the right and picks him out beautifully at the far post. The $100 million signing skied his effort, despite being under no pressure. 

46th minute: We’re back underway for the second half. Can Chelsea find a way back into this match?

HT: What a first half for Liverpool, that couldn’t have gone more to plan. Other than Nunez converting the penalty, of course. 

47th minute: MISSED! It’s been a bright half from Nunez but that with leave him with a bad taste in the mouth going into the interval as he smashes the right post. 

45th minute: PENALTY! Jota is brought down in the box and the referee immediately points to the spot. 

44th minute: “ONE CONOR BRADLEY! THERE’S ONLY ONE CONOR BRADLEY” is the chant from the Kop. That’s got to feel special for the young right-back. 

39th minute: GOAL! 2-0! Just as we were talking about his goal contributions, he finds himself on the scoresheet! Conor Bradley doubles Liverpool’s lead with a neat finish. 

34th minute: Chilwell booked for diving. Initially, it looked as though Konate had conceded a penalty but the referee saw it perfectly for what it was. 

26th minute: Conor Bradley now has four assists in the last four games, he’s been sensational. 

23rd minute: GOAL! 1-0 to Liverpool! Diogo Jota bundles his way through Chelsea’s defence before poking the ball into the back of the net. It’s a deserved lead for Klopp’s men. 

18th minute: Surely he’s going to turn these chances into a goal at some point tonight? Nunez has his fifth effort on goal and forces Petrovic into a good save after peeling away from his defender once again. 

14th minute: Nunez again finds himself in space and tries his luck but he drags the effort this time and it’s well wide of the goal. Chelsea are creating their own problems in these early stages. 

9th minute: Nunez skims the bar! The Reds striker takes a touch and then lets rip from some way out and he briefly caught Petrovic off guard.  

6th minute: An appeal for a penalty as Van Dijk brings down Gallagher in the box. There was a brief check by VAR but it’s complete and no penalty is the decision. 

1st minute: We’re underway at Anfield. 

5 minutes until kick-off: The players are out and the atmosphere is building nicely.
