Chelsea vs Liverpool: Match Preview
Chelsea vs Liverpool – one of the English Premier League’s star-studded fixture is here for the fans. The Reds will visit Chelsea’s hometown in the early part of the season for a regular yet crucial encounter. While Liverpool is having a magical start to their Premier League 19-20, they will be heading into this game with bags of confidence.
N’Golo Kante’s injury news was pretty devastating for Chelsea fans. However, their team has done fairly well in his absence. According to Frank Lampard, Kante is still struggling with an ankle injury despite his training. Although the fans will want to see Kante in their fixture against the visitors, Liverpool, they also wouldn’t want to force his entry. An injury should be given its maximum recovery time, says a majority of the fans.
While Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James could be returning in the side after suffering from injuries, Antonio Rudiger is expected to be sidelined. Same is the case with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who won’t be able to recover anytime sooner than November.
Jurgen Klopp’s side has gone absolute berserk in their Premier League fixtures this season. The Reds have drilled their opponents in all five games with a 100% winning record up till this point.
Liverpool started from continuing their club-record 14 games winning streak in the start of this season. If they win against Chelsea, they will then only have Manchester City’s record of 18 consecutive wins in Premier League history.
Liverpool has some good news on the injury front as Georginio Wjnaldum should return to the side. On the other hand, while Alisson Becker still faces another month of rest, Naby Kieta might be seen in the game against Chelsea.
