Chelsea vs Liverpool: Line-ups
Could Be High-scoring
Klopp’s side have comparable firepower and more, though, and a more characteristic defensive display could be enough for them to take all three points from this match. Goals should hopefully flow whatever happens, and we cannot split the two teams in what we expect to be an entertaining draw.
In Chelsea’s defence, many of their new arrivals did not feature against Brighton and will not be ready again in time for this contest, with German internationals Timo Werner and Kai Havertz the only players to be handed their debuts.
Having watched the early game-of-the-season contender at Anfield on the opening weekend, Lampard will at least be confident of creating chances against a Liverpool defence which, although the best in the league last term, has looked far less impenetrable recently.
The arrival of Thiago Alcantara will sate the Liverpool fans’ desire for a big-name signing, though, and even without the treble-winning Spain international the Reds would still have fancied their chances of outscoring most teams as they did against Leeds.
Considering their five-goal haul against Chelsea in their last meeting, Jurgen Klopp will be confident that his side have enough firepower to make it two wins from two this weekend, but any trip to Stamford Bridge is difficult.
