Chelsea vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 29th September 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
This Saturday clash will be like a replay of the Carabao Cup fixture that was played on Wednesday night. The game comes just days after the Blues hammered Liverpool with 2 goals to 1 to edge them out of the Carabao Cup.
Chelsea will once again strive to show their might against Klopp’s men at the Stamford Bridge. They will surely remain focused to clinch a win in this home game to forge to the top of the league standings, particularly above Liverpool with a point.
Notably, Sarri’s winning streak was halted by the Hammers in their game last weekend. At least, the Blues have bounced back by also halting the winning streak of Klopp’s men, and they are determined to do it once more. Hazard will feature in the starting XI after an excellent performance and a stunning goal in the Carabao Cup fixture. Liverpool has been enjoying a 6 match winning streak in the EPL. They have also won against France league 1 giants, PSG in a Champions League matchup. They will be coming into this away game after a beating by the same team who is hosting them for this EPL fixture.
They will need to remain vigilant lest they suffer the same results as it was in the Carabao Cup game. The forward trio of Mane, Salah and Firminho will feature in the starting XI.
