Liverpool are going to host Chelsea at Anfield Stadium today at 16:30(CET).
Liverpool’s deadly attacking instinct shows no signs of abating, and the title-chasers entertain Chelsea on a run of 6 competitive victories, 4 of which have seen the ‘Reds’ win by a margin of exactly 2 goals. 2 of that quartet have also seen Liverpool recover after conceding 1st inside the opening 10 minutes.
Yet more impressively, Liverpool’s last 3 Premier League home victories have seen them get the last goal of the game, and inside the final 15 minutes. Their most recent home league win (vs Tottenham) also made it 3 successive home Premier League wins (with both teams scoring) against fellow top-6 sides.
Unlike Liverpool, Chelsea return from a long-haul trip across Europe, and a flat performance could easily be forthcoming. The ‘Blues’ are still without a single point - or even a goal - this calendar year, from Premier League games away to any side currently above the relegation zone.
Chelsea will hope to take some inspiration from their good recent record at Anfield. 2-1 Carabao Cup tie winners here back in September, Chelsea have returned a record of: W2, D4, from their last 6 Premier League visits here. The last 3 draws in that sequence have ended 1-1, with Chelsea leading 1-0 at half-time in 2 of them.
