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,

1 – The build-up to the big game.

2 – The starting eleven as selected by Frank Lampard.

3 – The action as it happens at Stamford Bridge.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate aftermath of the sounding of the final whistle.

Is it going to be a ‘Blue’ day?

Only time will tell.

  • A potentially tough match and it equally demands a tough decision from the Gaffer. Liverpool will have little selection headaches while Chelsea have loads of it. This is a bad time to be a Chelsea Boss with all the injuries hindering our progress. With the right attitude and willingness we can get at them like we did in the Uefa Supercup and hopefully we emerge victorious this time. Common Chelsea!!!

  • The availability of Kante and Rudiger will help I have to no small measure but their situations remain unclear. The perfect blend would’ve been Mount and Pulisic behind Tammy. However, whoever is picked out there especially at the backline would be on their toes in order to match the pace of Liverpool’s front 3. If we can render them toothless upfront then we must have nullified their threat because they don’t have many goalscorers in other areas. Keeping Mane useless is very important as he is their major weapon. Hopefully Rudiger will play this game and a bonus of Kante in midfield will be the perfect tonic

  • In a situation where all our players are available, anything short of a win will be unacceptable because we have squad depth than them. Imagine having Hudson – Odoi, Loftus-Cheek, Kante, Rudiger, Emerson, Mount and even the untested Reece James available for selection, what a mouth watering prospect but it is what it is and we can only play those available and all we as fans can do is support the team wholeheartedly. So common guys let’s keep the blue flag flying high.

  • Between the two goals we were really unlucky … First Tammy missed when Mount was open, then a goal chalked off by VAR for a marginal offside

  • I thought we showed loads of character the second half was fabulous from us determination in abundance pity we couldn’t get the equaliser but on the plus Hudson-Odoi and Loftus-Cheek to return but for me Rudiger is a big miss can’t wait for a clean sheet

  • The FA can just gift wrap the title to Liverpool right and step out from underneath their skirts now because we all can see now that they are the darling of the FA. How do you describe two soft Free kicks awarded in the dangerous positions. The referee danced to the tune of those at the top or how else do you describe a performance as clueless as the one Mike Oliver gave out there? Azpilicueta’s goal was legit and those in the VAR room decided for the referee when their jobs was to help him make the right decisions.
    Like in every other country there should be a standby TV for the Ref to watch before deciding rather than just calling him on the headphones to chalk of the goal.

  • Our bad fortunes at the back continue with injuries to Christensen and more importantly Emerson. On the positive side we were compact and we snuff out all their threats up front. They resorted to kicking and bullying our boys which was laughable for a supposed European champions. They looked ordinary and we’ve shown with both of our meetings this season that they are beatable and I don’t think they are that far ahead of us.
    Hopefully by the turn of the year we will have a settled team and we’ll have less injuries as the season progress
