Chelsea vs Liverpool Preview: Who will win the battle at the Bridge?

The Premier League’s gameweek 6 sees Liverpool travel to south London to go toe to toe with rivals Chelsea, which promises to be a mouthwatering battle. Liverpool sit at the top of the Premier League standings while the Blues are currently placed 6th.

Both Liverpool and Chelsea suffered a defeat at the hands of Napoli and Valencia in the first round of the UEFA Champions League, with late goals getting the better of both teams.

However, the attention has quickly turned to Sunday’s clash which is undisputedly a main event of the weekend.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea had a mixed start to the season as they have won two, drawn two and lost one from the opening five fixtures. While on the other hand, the Reds are enjoying a brilliant start as they are the only side in the division with the 100% record which sees them sit at the top of the pile with 5 points lead on Champions Manchester City.

Here is all you need to know about Sunday’s clash between Liverpool & Chelsea.


Team News:

N’golo Kante is back for Chelsea and is in contention to face Liverpool which certainly is a mega boost for Lampard.

Liverpool’s Naby Keita and Alisson are still not available to feature. While Divock Origi doesn’t look will have a part in game vs Chelsea due to an injury against Newcastle United last week.


Kick-Off time: Sunday, 22nd September (16:30 BST)

Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Referee: Michael Oliver


Predicted Lineups:

Chelsea:  Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Tomori, Alonso; Jorgiinho, Kovacic; Willian, Mount; Abraham.

Prediction:

It would be an intense battle and both the teams will try to nullify each other but I think Liverpool will have enough in their tank to get a win at Stamford Bridge.
