Liverpool’s good form continued on Friday night as they defeated Conte’s Chelsea 1-2 at Stamford Bridge London. Dejan Lovren’s 17th minutes broke the deadlock, while J. henderson’s goal in the 36th minute made 0-2. Diego Costa’s 61 minute strike pulled one back for Chelsea, but it wasn’t enough to keep them from loosing. Prior to that game, Liverpool defeated the current Champions Leicester City 4-1 at Anfield, they hope to keep winning in this fixture.
Derby are still searching for a victory after 4 Championship outings, they drew 1-1 on Saturday away at Bristol City. They took the lead in the 44th minute just before halftime, via I. Anya’s goal, but they were unfortunate to conceded in the final minute of the game to end the game in a 1-1 stalemate. With low confidence in Derby camp, it’ll take more than a miracle to snatch a win from a very strong Liverpool side.
