Who: Chelsea vs Liverpool
When: Sunday, September 20th at 11:30am EST
Line: Chelsea +220| Draw +270 | Liverpool +116
However, Chelsea looked wobbly in an unconvincing 3-1 win vs Brighton. And Liverpool’s backline continued their arrogant, casual bad habits vs Leeds.
Who will get their ship righted first?
Here’s our Chelsea vs Liverpool matchday 2 preview.
Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview
Chelsea and Liverpool’s matchday 1 results showed us…nothing.
Liverpool were still not buttoned up against Leeds. However, they were also clearly the better side. Chelsea looked discombobulated…but have so much talent is doesn’t matter.
While Timo Werner and Kai Havertz didn’t make the score sheet last week, they were still solid. While Liverpool’s backline was casual and arrogant…they were still casual and arrogant.
Can Liverpool’s casual and arrogant backline (save Robbo, who always gives it 100%) stop Chelsea’s mega talented young attacking options?
And can Chelsea’s still trash backline stop Liverpool’s front three?
Liverpool acquired some serious talent at the end of the week. Thiago is among the best midfielders in the world (when healthy). While we don’t get the Jota move, it should still raise a front 3 eyebrow.
Expect an inspired performance from Liverpool. The one player at Chelsea who has consistently carved up Liverpool — Christian Pulisic — is out. The other who could — Hakim Ziyech — is also out.
Liverpool win a surprisingly dominant 4-1 match.
