Chelsea – Liverpool
It’s time for another great Premier League derby, because on Sunday Chelsea hosts Liverpool at the Stamford Bridge in a match from the sixth round of the competition. Right now Liverpool are leaders in the Premier League, but Chelsea will try to move closer to them.
After a very heavy defeat against Manchester United in the first round of the league, Chelsea started to stabilize their performance under Frank Lampard. In the last four rounds the Blues are unbeaten, celebrating two wins and doing two draws. Right now the Londoners are sixth in the standings with 8 points won. A win on Sunday would move them to four points behind the leader.
In the previous round Chelsea celebrated a second win for the campaign. Most of the pundits expected that the Blues won’t win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux, but Lampard’s boys celebrated an incredible 5-2 win at this very tough ground. The young striker Tammy Abraham proved that he’s a future star, scoring a hattrick in Rui Patricio’s net. Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount also added goals for the win.
Liverpool are having the perfect start of the campaign. The Reds are leading the Premier League standings with a perfect record of 15 points, acquired after five consecutive wins. At this moment the European champions are enjoying 5 points lead in front of Manchester City. In their last game in the league Liverpool hosted Newcastle United at the Anfield and celebrated a 3-1 win.
During the week Liverpool suffered their first loss for the season, though. This happened in the Champions League where Jurgen Klopp’s boys got beaten by Napoli on Italian soil. The visit to Stadio San Paolo ended with a 0-2, after Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente found the net behind Adrian. After the break Jurgen Klopp put Georginio Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri on the pitch, but this changed nothing.
Will Chelsea and Liverpool offer us another amazing game in the Premier League? We don’t have any doubts about that. Be sure to watch.
