Not many fixtures are as eagerly anticipated as this one.
The rivalry between the two clubs, aided and abetted by the plethora of encounters between the two sides, sees this game ringed on the fixture list as soon as they are released.
Liverpool, the current Champions League holders, arrive in SW6 unbeaten in the Premier League this season, whilst Chelsea’s form has, to be fair, been a little up and down.
Frank Lampard will be looking for his injury hit side to produce the kind of performance that will show, as Jurgen Klopp has mentioned in the pre-match build-up, as potential trophy winners this season.
But it’ll be a hard task to get something from this game, Liverpool’s razor-sharp attack will be looking to get at our defence, a unit that has looked a little ‘wobbly’ this season, however, write Chelsea off at your peril, it is this kind of game that usually sees Chelsea produce a performance.
As usual, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature where we encourage you to leave your opinions on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to,
