There’s one absolute marquee matchup in the Premier League this weekend, with third-place Chelsea heading to Anfield Road to play fifth-place Liverpool, in a match that starts with just three points separating the two old rivals, and with Chelsea having a potential opportunity to rise into third place with a win.
Recent history between these two sides, two of the biggest in both England and Europe as a whole, has been rather fascinating. Liverpool are unbeaten in five straight games against Chelsea, but the Blues are also unbeaten in their last five visits to Anfield. Both clubs have four wins in their last five matches, and with that kind of form and history coupled to the fascinating tactical matchup of teams lead by Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte going head-to-head, this promises to be a fun night.
Outside of the ridiculous goal-scoring output of Manchester City this season, Liverpool and Chelsea bring two of the top attacks in England right now — Liverpool’s 24 goals scored and Chelsea’s 23 are good for third and fourth in the EPL, respectively. The difference between the two clubs in the standings lies in their defenses, where Liverpool’s 17 goals allowed is a whopping seven more than Chelsea through the season’s first 12 games.
But Liverpool have been much better defensively at Anfield this season, allowing just one goal while scoring 12 at home. But then Chelsea have scored 14 goals on the road — five more than they have at Stamford Bridge — so that might not be too comforting for Liverpool fans desperate for another statement win to hopefully give this team some much-needed positive momentum heading into the winter season.
Liverpool are dealing with a trio of injury questions, with Emre Can, Adam Lallana, and Joel Matip in varying degrees of doubt after recent injuries. Chelsea are getting Victor Moses back from injury, but Michy Batshuayi, Charly Musonda, and Kenedy are all expected to remain out.
