FOOTBALL - EPL - CHELSEA vs LIVERPOOL

Two of the biggest clubs in the English Premier League will battle out at Stamford Bridge this weekend. Chelsea (eight points) will look to trip the table-toppers Liverpool (15 points) on matchday six. With history in sight for both the managers, this game promises to be a keen affair.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard can become the first Chelsea manager since 2009 to win his first match against the Reds. Jurgen Klopp can become the first Liverpool manager to win three Premier League trips to Stamford Bridge. With so much on the line, expect a tight battle.

Chelsea Preview

The Blues have lost only once in their last 24 Premier League matches at this venue (W13, D10, L1). They have also beaten the top side of the League on 18 occasions, which is the most by any club. Furthermore, Chelsea have scored in 19 of their last 20 matches against Liverpool.

However, Chelsea have won just one of their last nine league games against Liverpool (W1, D5, L3). For them to beat this stat, Chelsea need Tammy Abraham to be at his best. Ankle injury for Mason Mount is a worry. Have an eye on his fitness before making a fantasy choice.

Liverpool Preview

The Reds are unbeaten this season and have good memories of this trip. Liverpool have won five of their last 11 league trips (W5, D3, L3) to Stamford Bridge. Furthermore, the Reds are unbeaten in 22 Premier League matches (W18, D4). Additionally, they have lost just once in their last 44 league games (W36, D7, L1).

Klopp has won on two of his four league trips to Chelsea. To make it a historical third, he needs his forward trio to feast on Chelsea’s weak defence. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are top picks to fill your side.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Tammy Abraham has been in good scoring form for Chelsea. The Blues forward has got seven goals in his last three league games.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is arguably the best right-back of the league. He already has three assists to his name and looks set for more.

Mohamed Salah has started the season in the right way. He already has scored four goals and made two assists for Liverpool. Salah is a costly pick, but is a worthy one.
