LIVERPOOL – CHELSEA Predictions
Both opponents are likely to be laying claims on the title at the finish line of the season. That means they need to be fighting for points as early as right now, at the beginning of the new Premier League season. The match promises to be a real blockbuster.
The scenarios may be different, but a struggle of the equals and intrigue until the last minutes are all but guaranteed. Since the start of the season, both Liverpool and Chelsea have been scoring a lot while defending reliably.
This makes sense: Klopp and Tuchel are similar in their coaching methods of building all-around teams with a precisely balanced lineup. But only one team can become a champion in the end. Statistically, of these two, Chelsea have a better chance so far. On their last visit to Liverpool, the Aristocrats earned a 1:0 victory. And in general, the Londoners have noticeably improved in the organization of the game this season.
The history of head-to-head encounters between the clubs offers few clues about the productivity of the upcoming match, but this time, most likely, there will be goals. Liverpool have got Salah, and now Romelu Lukaku is playing for Chelsea.
It just doesn't make sense to sit it out in defense with this kind of lineup.
