Chelsea vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge.
These two teams could be considered (along with Manchester City) to be the title favorites this season.
The Reds for obvious reasons – they have been the best team in England, and maybe in Europe along with Bayern Munich, for the past two years. They are coached by the inspirational Jurgen Klopp, who has vowed to defend their title.
They also have probably the best attacking trio in the whole of Europe in – Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane.
Meanwhile, after their ban came to an end, the Blues simply set the current transfer window on fire. They have made countless purchases this off-season, and widespread consensus is that they have compensated more than enough for the departure of the aging Eden Hazard.
Suffice it to say that we are in line for a treat of attacking football this Sunday. Moreover, recent h2h clashes have all had plenty of goals between them.
By all means, expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend.
Chelsea vs Liverpool: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash between the two was an eight-goal affair – as Klopp’s men recorded a 5-3 victory at Anfield.
- 11 of the former 15 overall encounters had goals from both teams.
- Since 2011, not once have the guests kept a clean sheet at this stadium.
- The previous 14 wins at this ground were evenly split into seven each for either team.
Chelsea vs Liverpool: Prediction
Frank Lampard’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Brighton. Meanwhile, the reigning champions recorded a 4-3 win at home the past game week, against Leeds.
The Blues are on a seven-match winning run at home, and in the process, they had scored a total of 15 goals. In addition, with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, and Tammy Abraham – it would be a wonder if the team does not find the back of the net.
The same is the case for their counterparts. The Reds are the defending champions of the league, and with some of the best players in the world up front, it would be a travesty if they could not slot in some goals.
Moreover, Klopp’s men had scored a total of 25 goals from their past seven match-ups alone.
Going on, majority of h2h clashes between the two teams have had plenty of goals as well. Case in point – the eight-goal affair just a month back when these two locked horns.
As such, expect a goal-fest this Sunday.
