Liverpool vs Chelsea 21.01.2023
Liverpool and Chelsea will be looking to reinvent their season and rejig their top 4 hopes when they lock horns in one of Saturday’s mouthwatering PL games. For Liverpool, the 1-0 FA Cup win over Wolves was a much needed one, coming after Brighton hit them for 3 at the Ammex. That league loss to Brighton pushed Klopp’s men down to 9th on the log, 10 points off the top four. To boost their chances of making UCL football next season, this tie is crucial.
Just like Liverpool, Chelsea have been struggling. In fact, Potter’s men have only won twice in 11 games across all competitions, losing 7 and drawing 2. One of the two wins recorded during this poor run came at home through Kai Havertz’s 64th minute strike in the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. While that win was a much needed one, it did not change anything in terms of Chelsea’s position on the log as the Blues remain 10th, 10 points off the top four. However, Potter’s men will draw confidence from that victory as they gun for a first league win at Anfield since March 2021.
Considering the two sides’ hunger for points and desire to return to winning ways, we expect a thrilling contest with at least 10 corners played.
