Keita comes into the team for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Liverpool ahead of their final Anfield fixture of the season.

It is expected to be an emotional evening for Kopites with Liverpool’s Premier League trophy presentation to follow after full-time.

 

A win for Liverpool against Frank Lampard’s team will take the Reds to 96 points – just one point shy of last season’s club-record points tally.

The English champions will also be looking to make history as they know a win will ensure a third consecutive unbeaten campaign at Anfield and will mean Liverpool will have taken 55 points from a possible 57 at home.

Chelsea come into the match full of confidence having defeated Manchester United 3-1 in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday.

The reverse fixture between the two teams went in Liverpool’s favour when the Reds emerged 2-1 victors at Stamford Bridge.
