Chelsea started this season with new manager Anotinio Conte and they are playing very good so far. After 4 rounds they are standing at the second position with two points less than leader Manchester City. They are still unbeaten in Premier League this season, 3 wins and one draw in the last round against Swansea. Home side didn’t have hard schedule at the beginning, so the match against Liverpool could be the real test for Chelsea. Home team is one of the main favorites to win the trophy this season, so they have to win this game in order to come closer to leader. Diego Costa has started this season amazing and scored 4 goals so far, so he could be the most dangerous player for Liverpool’s defence.
Liverpool have improved their performance and managed to beat last season champions Leicester 4-1 in the previous round. It was their second win this season and they want to make another good performance and get back home with at least one point in their pocket. It won’t be an easy job for them, because Chelsea play very good upfront their supporters, but visitors hope that they can make another magnificent performance, as they did against Arsenal in the first round, beating them 3-4. Good thing for both sides is that they don’t participate in any of European competition this season, so they can fully focus on Premier League. Another good thing for Liverpool is the fact that Emre Can has recovered from an injury and he could get a chance in the second half-time.
Home side miss their captain John Terry (4/0 d), Kurt Zouma (0/0 d) and Marco van Ginkel . On the other side, Liverpool will be without Mamadou Sakho (0/0 d), Joe Gomez (0/0 d) and Oluwaseyi Ojo (0/0 m), while Emre Can (1/0 m) is doubtful.
Both teams have very good squads and both want to win this game. Home side are closer to take all three points, but I can’t underestimate visitors. I expect very interesting and open game between Chelsea vs Liverpool and many goals.
