A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Sunday:


It will be intriguing to see whether Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel starts Romelu Lukaku against Liverpool or if the striker even features in the clash between the two top-four rivals. The summer signing said he is “not happy” with his situation at Chelsea in an interview released on Thursday. Tuchel said in his pre-match news conference that he was frustrated by the “noise” of the story and said he did not feel Lukaku was unhappy. Chelsea is on the slide after drawing four of its last five home league games. Liverpool is coming off the setback of losing at Leicester, but it picked up seven points in the previous three games. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp will miss the game while in coronavirus isolation, with assistant Pepijn Lijnders in charge at Stamford Bridge. In an earlier game, Dominic Calvert-Lewin could make his first appearance since August when Everton hosts Brighton. The striker scored in each of Everton’s first three matches of the season, but a thigh injury and subsequent setback in his recovery has kept him out. Everton has not played since Dec. 16 due to coronavirus-related postponements. Leeds plays Burnley after a two-week gap due to its coronavirus outbreak. Five points separate Leeds and Burnley, which is in the relegation zone. Brentford also hosts Aston Villa.


Spanish teams return from a winter break hard hit by coronavirus infections and with caps on attendance back in force at stadiums. Stadiums can have no more than 75% capacity, with some regions lowering attendances even further to handle a surge in COVID-19 cases. Barcelona has reported 10 infections to players since its last match less than two weeks ago. That means Xavi Hernández will have to dig even deeper into the club’s pool of youth players. His squad for the game at Mallorca includes 11 first-team players and 10 members of its reserve team. Captain Sergio Busquets will miss the game due to a one-game suspension for accumulation of yellow cards. Atlético Madrid also plays a derby against Rayo Vallecano without coach Diego Simeone and players João Félix and Koke Resurrección after they tested positive for the virus. Antoine Griezmann, who also tested positive, was already ruled out due to injury along with Marcos Llorente. Rayo is in fourth place just above the defending champions. League leader Real Madrid crosses the capital to play Getafe without in-form winger Vinícius Júnior and doubts about the readiness of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after both tested positive. But Luka Modric, David Alaba, Rodrygo, and Gareth Bale are among Madrid players who had missed action due to recent infections but are now available to play against Getafe.–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/–179659604/


There are 13 matches in the French Cup as teams look to reach the last 16. Seven Monaco players have tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of the match at second-tier Quevilly-Rouen. Montpellier hosts Strasbourg and Bordeaux visits Brest in all first-division matches, while 10-time French Cup winners Marseille travels to fifth-tier Chauvigny. Marseille last won the competition in 1989 and has lost in four finals since.

A massive Premier League showdown is set for Sunday as third-place Liverpool visit second-place Chelsea, with both teams trying to keep within reach of leaders Manchester City. Chelsea enter the day 11 points back of City with a 12-6-2 record. Liverpool are a point behind the Blues and 12 back of City, coming off their second loss of the season with a defeat to Leicester City last time out. A win for Chelsea would provide a boost to a team that has won just one of their last four, while Liverpool could get within nine points with a game in hand.

Chelsea: All eyes will be on whether Romelu Lukaku starts for the team as tensions rise after his words off the pitch. Lukaku has criticized manager Thomas Tuchel in a recent interview and said that he had hoped to one day return to Inter Milan. We’ll see how Tuchel handles it, and if he opts for his star forward or to makes a statement by playing others in attack. Chelsea did spend $135 million on the striker as he rejoined the club, and one would expect him to play in a match of this magnitude. If not, it could be telling. So far this season he has seven goals in 18 games.

Liverpool: The Reds have had to deal with COVID-19 as well and will be without manager Jurgen Klopp after returning a suspected positive test, the club announced on Saturday. Meanwhile, Andy Robertson remains suspended. Additionally, Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip miss out after testing positive, with the goalkeeper being a massive blow to their chances.

Chelsea host Liverpool this afternoon in what looks like a straight shootout to determine who are the nearest challengers to Manchester City for the Premier League title.

With City 11 points ahead of Thomas Tuchel’s side courtesy of their last-gasp win over Arsenal yesterday, catching the current champions looks unlikely but a loss for either side at Stamford Bridge would surely prove a hammer blow to any lingering title hopes.

Having played out an entertaining draw at Anfield earlier this season, it promises to be quite the occasion, though Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be absent due to a suspected positive Covid-19 test.

Assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders will lead the Reds in west London instead.

Chelsea play Liverpool in a massive game in the Premier League title race on Sunday.

The Blues have dropped off the pace at the top of the table in recent weeks and now sit 11 points behind league leaders Manchester City after the champions came back to beat Arsenal on Saturday. Manager Thomas Tuchel has Covid and injury problems to address with Reece James the latest first-team star to be forced onto the sidelines. A bigger concern is Romelu Lukaku with the emergence of the striker’s controversial interview this week set to cost him his place in the side.

Jurgen Klopp has Covid issues of his own with Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip joining the manager himself in missing the game with suspected positive tests. The Reds will be desperate to get back on track after defeat at Leicester last time out with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane set to feature for the final time before jetting off to the Africa Cup of Nations later this week.

The Liverpool statement regarding the three suspected positives reads: “Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip have been ruled out of Liverpool’s clash with Chelsea today after returning suspected positive tests for COVID-19.

“The trio will play no part in the fixture at Stamford Bridge and are now isolating.

“It follows news Jürgen Klopp will not be present at the encounter after also registering a suspected positive test.

“All other members of the Reds’ playing squad have subsequently been tested and received negative results.”

Breaking team news as the three Liverpool players with suspected positive Covid tests have been confirmed as Alisson Becker, Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino.

There’s also been another goal at Elland Road where Maxwel Cornet has equalised for Burnley against Leeds.

Spoils being shared in the relegation six-pointer as it stands. Anthony Gordon has pulled one back for the hosts eight minutes into the second half and all of a sudden Everton are right back in it.

Jurgen Klopp will miss Liverpool’s crucial match at Chelsea on Sunday after testing positive for Covid-19.

The Liverpool manager is experiencing mild symptoms and now joins the list of three staff members and three players who have tested positive this week.

In Friday’s press conference Klopp did not reveal who had tested positive but hinted the cases would affect his first XI for the game at Stamford Bridge between second and third in the Premier League. “It’s not so cool at the moment,” Klopp said. “I’m not able to say who it is but it’ll be pretty clear on the team sheet.”

Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders will lead the team into the crunch fixture. Liverpool are one point behind second-placed Chelsea with a game in hand.
