Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview

Liverpool vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 25th November 2017

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Liverpool capitulated in a typical manner in midweek as they relinquished a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 at Sevilla.

The Reds have been poor at the back in recent seasons and that game showed that they have not improved that part of their game.

They are currently unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions and are 5th in the league table, 12 points behind top of the table Manchester City.

The only top side the Reds have beaten this season is Arsenal and they have dropped points against Watford, Burnley, Newcastle, Manchester City and Manchester United.

This should give Chelsea the confidence they need to go for all three points.

However, with Mo. Salah in blistering form, he could be the game changer here for Liverpool.

Chelsea enter this game off the back of three Premier League wins in a row and hammered Qarabag 0-4 in their own European game in midweek.

The last time they were in action in the Premier League, they ran riot at the Hawtorns beating West Brom 0-4 leading to the sacking of Tony Pulis.

They have six wins from their last seven games in all competitions and 4 consecutive wins in the Premier League.

They have won all but one of their away league games this season including at Tottenham and they could pull off another famous win here.
