Bookmaker: Zetbet

Chelsea and Liverpool will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the Blues and the Reds will be held at Stamford Bridge in London and is scheduled to kick off at 4:30pm UK time on Sunday.


Chelsea are one of the biggest clubs in the world and are a global brand. The Blues have won the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League in recent years, but last season, they had a really torrid time. The London club could not even challenge for the Premier League top four and seemed set for a relegation fight at one point.

Things are bound to be better this time around. Chelsea have appointed former Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain head coach Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss. Pochettino will be determined to get the team back into the UEFA Champions League for the 2024-25 campaign.

Chelsea have been very active in the summer transfer window. The Blues have signed forward Christopher Nkunku, central defender Axel Disasi, centre-forward Nicolas Jackson and winger Angelo among other players. The Blues have focused on young players this summer, and it will be interesting to see how they do this season.

Team News:

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino could line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Nicolas Jackson is likely to lead the line for the former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners. Enzo Fernandez will be one of the two sitting midfielders. Raheem Sterling will start on the right wing. Kepa will be in goal for the home team.


Like Chelsea, Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs in the world and are a global brand. And, like Chelsea, Liverpool did not have the best of times last season. While the Reds did much better than the Blues, they will have been bitterly disappointed by their failure to finish in the top four of the Premier League table last season.

Liverpool will be keen on finishing in the UEFA Champions League places in the Premier League table this season and will also be looking to challenge for the title. The Merseyside club have won the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League in recent seasons, and the Anfield faithful will be confident of a very successful campaign ahead.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have not been very active in the summer transfer window. Liverpool have lost quite a few players. Roberto Firmino is among those who left the Reds on a free transfer at the end of last season. Midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson have left for clubs in Saudi Arabia. Liverpool signed attacking midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig, while Argentina international midfielder Alexis Mac Allister moved from Brighton and Hove Albion.

Team News:

Liverpool are likely to line up familiar 4-3-3 formation against Chelsea. Brazil international goalkeeper Alisson will be in goal and will have Trent Alexander-Arnold, Josip Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson in front of him in defence. Alexis Mac Allister, Curtis Jones and Dominik Szoboszlai will be the midfield-three, while Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo and Mohamed Salah will be the front-three.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Chelsea won 3 of their 5 pre-season friendly matches.
  • Chelsea scored 13 goals in their 5 pre-season friendly matches.
  • Chelsea conceded 5 goals in their 5 pre-season friendly matches.
  • Liverpool conceded 4 goals against Greuther Furth in a pre-season friendly game.
  • Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has scored 7 goals against his former club Chelsea in all competitions.


Chelsea will be keen on making a strong impact on their first game of the new season and will be determined to win against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in London. And you could say the same about Liverpool. This promises to be a hugely exciting game, and in the end, a single goal could separate the two teams. Liverpool will edge this match, mainly because they have a more settled side, including the backline.
