Chelsea vs Liverpool − Match preview
Ross Barkley was Chelsea’s villain on Tuesday night, when the young Englishman lashed his late penalty high over the bar. The Blues may need some heroes to step up this Sunday though, if they’re to take anything from Liverpool side who have yet to put a foot wrong… in the Prem, anyway.
It’s five wins from five for Klopp’s reds, where Chelsea’s comparably stuttering form has not impressed. Their loss of a 2-0 lead to Premier League new boys, Sheffield United, (who came back to draw 2-2,) was particularly galling for Chelsea fans.
Last month the rivals were only separable via penalties, when they met in the UEFA Super Cup. Liverpool taking the shoot-out 5-4, where normal time had ended in a 2-2 stalemate.
Chelsea’s burgeoning star, Mason Mount, won’t be available and he’s a big loss for Lampard. Rudiger and Kante are also sidelined, severely limiting the manager’s midfield options. There is a silver lining though, Callum Hudson-Odoi seems likely to return.
Liverpool are lacking their star stopper, Alisson, and his replacement, Adrian, has shown himself capable of wobbly moments. On the positive side for the reds though, Divock Origi and Naby Keita may return pending fitness tests.
It’s hard to see an injury-affected Chelsea turning the tables on Liverpool at this stage, but the blues are capable on their day and an upset is always possible. However, so is another hiding for Chelsea. They showed severe vulnerabilities on their 4-0 opening day loss to Manchester United and have continued to leak goals since.
