Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has predicted Thomas Tuchel’s team to get a good result against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool when both side clash in the Premier League on Thursday.
Kante believes the blues can beat Liverpool at Anfield, adding that the game is very important for the London club.
Chelsea head to the game after a 0-0 draw with Manchester United last Sunday, while the Reds defeated Sheffield United 2-0.
Kante has now issued a rallying cry ahead of Thursday night’s clash, and insists that Chelsea are aiming for the three points against Liverpool.
“It is an important game for us, we are very close in the league. We go there for a win,” Kante told Sky Sports News.
“We know that it is not going to be easy, but we go with hope, and I am sure that we can get a good result from Anfield.
“Man Utd, Leicester and West Ham are ahead of us, but we still have many games to play, and if we’re doing well, then we have the ability to get this position. “We need to fight for it, to prepare for it, and to do everything we can to get in this top four.”
