Chelsea vs Liverpool Match Preview and Team News
The European champions have been on a disastrous run recently, and Brighton’s last gasp leveler at Stamford Bridge in midweek just about put the lid on it. They have collected just nine points from their previous 18, and a lengthy unavailable list was added to when Reece James and Andreas Christensen added to Thomas Tuchel’s problems. The Blues has been without the likes of Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and even the return of Romelu Lukaku couldn’t steer them to three points as they drew their third league game in their last four. Over their preceding six fixtures, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea has scored ten times, with that being an average number of goals scored per match equal to 1.67. Coming into this contest, Chelsea has not been beaten in the league by Liverpool in their previous two games. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
Jurgen Klopp was also fuming after his side somehow failed to get anything against a patch-up Leicester City team despite dominating. It left Liverpool eight points behind champions Manchester City, and anything other than a win in West London would surely spell the end of any title challenge. The stats tell the story, and Liverpool has been scored against in 5 of their last six games, conceding eight goals in total. At the back, Liverpool has not been doing too well. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this next game, though. Inspecting their most recent head-to-head meetings going back to 22/09/2019 tells us that Chelsea has won 2 of these & Liverpool 3, with the number of drawn games standing at 1. Naby Keita has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
