Below are the best photos from Liverpool’s training session on Thursday, ahead of the Premier League clash against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Liverpool players have been training on Thursday ahead of the Premier League clash against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Reds will host the Blues at Anfield in a match that could define their season.

Liverpool will head into the match placed seventh in the league table with 14 points from 10 matches, three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is under huge pressure to win the game as he made some controversial team selection on Tuesday.

Mario Balotelli, Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard were all left on the substitutes’ bench for Liverpool’s Champions League encounter against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Rodgers was probably trying to give his key players some rest ahead of this weekend’s match against Chelsea, but his decision will come under scrutiny if Liverpool lose.

However, the Liverpool players are in confident mood and look relaxed ahead of the big game. There were smiles all around in training today.
