Liverpool vs Chelsea Premier League Match Preview
Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield this weekend boasting an impressive recent record against the Premier League champions.
The Blues have not beaten Jurgen Klopp’s men in the League for over three years when goals from Diego Costa and Gary Cahill sealed all three points.
Another win for the Reds this weekend will send them above their fellow title contenders, while a loss could all but end any hopes with Manchester City setting the pace at the top.
Chelsea head into Saturday’s clash off the back of securing Champions League progress with a 4-0 win over Qarabag in Baku, while Liverpool let a three-goal lead slip to draw 3-3 with Sevilla in Spain.
