We’re intrigued by the prospect of Chelsea and Liverpool clashing at Stamford Bridge, with the teams sitting tenth and sixth in the Premier League table at the time of writing. The Blues have little to no prospect of qualifying for the Champions League, although they will at least want to get into European competition next term.

Graham Potter saw his team pick up form-wise before the international break, with Chelsea landing consecutive wins over Leeds, Borussia Dortmund and Leicester, although they were dealt a blow when being held by Everton. At least they are scoring goals, with Kai Havertz and Joao Felix operating well for a team who will come into this match after facing Aston Villa.

Liverpool won just three of their first thirteen away matches this season, although they often reserve their best performances for the bigger games. Two of their three victories came away to Spurs and Newcastle, with Jurgen Klopp’s side looking to get on the front foot against a Chelsea team who are missing the injured Thiago Silva.
