Liverpool Vs Chelsea Head-to-Head Statistics: As Liverpool take on Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday, we shall look at the head-to-head statistics at Anfield.
Liverpool will face off Chelsea in a pulsating encounter at Anfield. The Reds are going neck-to-neck with Manchester City for the Premier League title and would be desperate to secure all three points, whereas, Maurizio Sarri’s side are battling out for a place in the top four.
There has been plenty of talks that this fixture is harking back to the same game five years ago which saw Jose Mourinho denying the hosts their first title in 24 years. Despite all the recollection of bad memories for Liverpool fans, Jurgen Klopp has assured that the mood around the club is totally positive to bag three points on Sunday.
Since the only defeat in the Premier League to Manchester City in early January, results have not been particularly bad for the Reds by winning eight, drawing four and losing none. Albeit the adequate numbers, the Citizens have been simply outstanding by winning ten and drawing just one in the process. The Reds are two points ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side, but they will have a game in hand which might prove to be decisive.
On the other hand, Chelsea have been hitting decent form by winning four and losing one in the process. The last time they travelled to Merseyside, Everton were comfortable 2-0 victors over Maurizio Sarri’s Blues three weeks before. However, the introduction of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek to the starting eleven, and Eden Hazard discovering his old form will make Jurgen Klopp think about, and he jokingly said that he would need 13 players to mark the Belgian.
It will be an interesting game as both sides will be keen to procure three points.
