Liverpool vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Two sides with 100% records meet in Saturday’s evening game as Liverpool entertain Chelsea.

Liverpool weren’t at their best but edged past Burnley last weekend, thanks to goals from Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane.

Mohamed Salah had a goal ruled out for offside, but they were indebted to Alisson who made three or four very good saves.

Chelsea were too strong for Arsenal with the performance of Romelu Lukaku, on his second Chelsea debut, encouraging for Blues fans.

Lukaku opened the scoring, with Reece James adding a second before the break.

Match history
Both teams won the away meeting last year, with Mason Mount scoring the winner at Anfield.

Mane scored twice as Liverpool won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, with Alisson saving a Jorginho as well.

Last five Premier League meetings

Chelsea 0 Liverpool 2 – 20/09/20
Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3 – 22/07/20
Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2 – 22/09/19
Liverpool 2 Chelsea 0 – 14/04/19

Team news
Kostas Tsimikas has deputised brilliantly so far; however Andrew Robertson is expected to come back into the XI.

Fabinho and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain both missed the win over Burnley due to personal reasons, but both are in contention.

Hakim Ziyech and N’Golo Kante recovered from injury to make the squad against Arsenal and the latter should start.

Marcos Alonso’s impressive start to the season means he is likely to keep Ben Chilwell out of the XI once again.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Jota, Mane

Chelsea (3-4-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Havertz, Lukaku, Mount


Result: Draw
Both teams have made good starts to the campaign and would probably settle for a point

Correct Score: 1-1
Very difficult to split the sides and 0-0 or 1-1 looks a good bet

Anytime Goalscorer: Mason Mount
Mount scored the winner at Anfield last season and was excellent at Arsenal last weekend
