Match Preview: Chelsea vs. Liverpool

Chelsea welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge this Sunday. The Blues will be keen to maintain their solid start to the season while Liverpool will be looking for a much-needed victory in what is sure to be an exciting clash.

On current League form, one can say that Chelsea will win this match. From 10 matches, Chelsea have won 7, drawn 2 and lost only 1 match so far this season. On the other hand, Liverpool’s form has been dismal. From 10 matches, they have won 2, drawn 5 and lost 3. Both teams have had contrasting starts to their respective seasons. While Chelsea’s new style of play has earned them plaudits, Liverpool are still adapting to manager Brendan Rodgers philosophy and despite a few decent displays, the results have not gone their way. All this considered, it should be a comfortable win for Chelsea, right? Ah, if only it were that simple…

Chelsea may have the home advantage, but the last time Chelsea managed to beat Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League was 3 years ago. The last 6 times the two clubs have met in all competitions, Liverpool have emerged victorious 5 times (Chelsea’s sole victory against the Anfield side in this clash was in last season’s FA Cup final). Liverpool have done the League double over Chelsea 3 times in the last 4 seasons. It’s almost as if Liverpool up their game against Chelsea.

Both teams will be desperate for the win. Chelsea’s draw against Swansea last week saw the Londoners slip from the top of the table and the Blues will be desperate not to lose further ground to title rivals. Liverpool currently sit 12th in the Premier League and will want to beat Chelsea just to prove that they are no pushovers.

Key players: Luis Suarez (Liverpool), Oscar dos Santos (Chelsea)

Key stats:-
1) In John Terry’s absence (he was serving a 4-match ban for being found guilty of an FA charge), Chelsea have conceded 12 goals in 5 matches in all competitions.

2) Liverpool are looking for a 5th straight victory against Chelsea in the English Premier League.
Predicted XI: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Ramires, Mikel; Mata, Oscar, Hazard; Torres.
