Chelsea Vs Liverpool Dream11 Prediction: As Liverpool prepare to take on Chelsea, we shall look at the Dream11 predictions.
Liverpool have a small trip to London as they prepare to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. It has been a mediocre start for the Blues, while their opponents are the only side to hold 100% record in the early stages of the new season.
The hosts defence has been rusty – conceding 11 goals from paltry 5 games. The talks about Liverpool’s defence have intensified after keeping just one clean sheet out of seven in all competitions, but they conceded just four, joint-highest with their arch-rivals Manchester United in the Premier League this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side boasts superior squad, but Frank Lampard’s attacking method has been reaping rewards – especially with the famous 5-2 victory over Wolves last week.
We shall look at the XI which could gain the most points in the Dream11.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Dream11 prediction
Adrian: Adrian has improved over the course of weeks since signing for Liverpool. The Spaniard was initially shaky, but he has been doing his work with his hand and feet. He made a spectacular save against in the midweek and could have the same effect against Chelsea. Since Liverpool have a good defence, Adrian is most likely to keep a clean sheet.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: The young full-back has carried on last season’s form to this season. Alexander-Arnold has two assists in the Premier League alone and will have his say in the attacking end. He’s integral to Liverpool’s chance creation and Jurgen Klopp will have the formula to get him ahead and link up with the forwards.
Antonio Rudiger: Frank Lampard has been deploying a back three which has been half-decent – conceding fewer goals relatively. The German is the experienced centre-back in this young Chelsea side and could have an effect with his commands. He makes plenty of tackles and interventions, and could notch up goals from the set-pieces too.
Virgil Van Dijk: Virgil Van Dijk has been the best defender in the Premier League over last two seasons. There’s no necessity to divulge about the Dutch International, who’s nothing short of colossus. Van Dijk reads the game to perfection, can pick out passes from the backline and score goals.
Emerson Palmieri: Emerson Palmieri sat out for a while because of the injury. The Italian has recovered from this issue and will start ahead of Marcos Alonso in the left-back position. Since he plays as a full-back, Emerson will be effective in the final third.
Fabinho: Fabinho is an undisputable start for Liverpool currently. The Brazilian’s place in the starting eleven is firm because of his uniqueness from other midfielders. He’s a destroyer and can win tackles and win aerial duels for fun. Fabinho can pick out passes and score from long range too.
Sadio Mane (C): Sadio Mane did not look sharp in the last game against Napoli, but has already scored four times in five Premier League games. The Senegalese International was too hard to handle in the Super Cup, scoring a brace to clinch the European trophy. He’s been excellent and has the chance of adding more to his tally on Sunday.
Willian: Willian has taken over the responsibility as the most experienced Chelsea attacker. The Brazilian has been good by picking out pockets of space, but he struggles in the final third. He’s yet to reach 50 goals for the Blues in the Premier League, but he takes set-pieces, which could help his course.
Mohamed Salah: Mohamed Salah scored a wondergoal when these sides went head-to-head in Anfield last April. The Egyptian is termed as a slow starter to every season, but he has four goals and two assists from five games this campaign. He’s been unplayable at times, giving a headache to the opponents. When he struggles to find his feet, he has the panache to find the back of the net somehow.
Roberto Firmino: Roberto Firmino is a key ingredient to Liverpool’s system. The Brazilian links up the midfield with the front duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Since he puts in significant efforts in the midfield area to win back the balls, Liverpool forwards elevates their goal tally. Despite the never-ending hard work, Firmino has two goals and five assists this season.
Tammy Abraham (VC): Frank Lampard was always convinced about the prospect of playing Tammy Abraham in the frontline. The young striker has goals and has backed up his talent by scoring seven goals in the Premier League this season. Not only he’s been scoring goals, but his clinical nature in front of the goal has assisted Frank Lampard’s side to an unthinkable extent.
