Chelsea vs Liverpool is supposed to be an absolute cracker on Sunday night. The trip to the Stamford Bridge should be a very interesting one for the Merseyside. Liverpool is yet to drop a point this season. On the other hand, Chelsea won a good game against the Wolves last week. Not being able to squash the cash due to the transfer ban on Chelsea, he did a decent job. He relied on his youth squad, with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, and Fikoyo Tomoroi. The mix of youth and experience and youth has given Chelsea a decent start.
European Champions, on the other hand, are the nightmare of every team. Liverpool got off to a good start with five wins in a row. Now they would look to pick up the 3 points after their title opposition set 8 points past Watford. Manchester City had a more than a comfortable win over Watford. And they’d love to keep the heat on until the end of the season and hope to win the title again.
A win in the Stamford bridge not only helps them get the three points but also helps them to secure a record of seven away wins from home. Klopp will look to win his 92nd match on his 150th match as a manager for Liverpool. Sadio Mane will look to score his 50th Goal in the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea has won only one game in their last 9 meetings will look to change things around this time. Tammy Abraham has scored 7 goals in his last 5 games will be the key for Chelsea Winning. On the other hand, the trio of Liverpool will look to continue to be the dominant force.
