Liverpool vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea travel to Anfield on Saturday evening looking to extend their good recent record away at Liverpool.

Liverpool were frustrated in Europe on Tuesday, as they blew a 3-0 lead away at Sevilla in an incredible draw.

Domestically they are turning their season around and eased past Southampton last time out, with Mohammed Salah scoring another brace.

Chelsea thrashed West Brom at the Hawthorns, winning 4-0 to bring an end to Tony Pulis’ tenure at the Baggies.

They also won 4-0 in the Champions League, easing to a comfortable win away at Qarabag to qualify for the last 16 of the competition.

Team news
Joel Matip should return to the team for Liverpool having missed their last two fixtures with a thigh problem.

Wijnaldum is a doubt and unlikely to be fit enough here though for the hosts.

Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill will return to the starting XI following rotation in midweek.

Both Willian and Pedro could find themselves on the bench here with Eden Hazard starting behind Alvaro Morata.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Lovren, Moreno; Can, Henderson, Coutinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Chelsea (3-5-1-1): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; Zappacosta, Fabregas, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard; Morata

Predictions

Correct Score: 1-1 (29/4 with Betfair)

Anytime Goalscorer: Alvaro Morata (8/5 with 888 Sport)
