Premier League

Chelsea-Liverpool Preview

Jurgen Klopp "was never in doubt" about the togetherness of his Liverpool squad after seeing his side return to winning ways in time for Thursday's top-four showdown with Chelsea.

The fallen champions brought an end to a four-game losing run in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory at bottom side Sheffield United on Sunday.

Klopp has already conceded that retaining the title Liverpool won last year is no longer a possibility, but the Reds now face a battle to secure Champions League football.
