Liverpool vs Chelsea: Head-to-head

Liverpool have a better head to head record historically, coming into the landmark 170th clash against the Blues.

The Reds won 71 and lost 58 so far.

At home, Liverpool won as many as 48 and lost only 13 of 82 clashes with the Blues.

It is interesting to note that only one of last seven head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.

Chelsea took four points from last term meetings with the Reds in the Premier League.

Liverpool vs Chelsea: Prediction

This clash should be different to those played between these two sides over the past couple of years, Maurizio Sarri has completely changed Chelsea’s mentality and football philosophy since taking over Antonio Conte on the bench.

The attacking-minded approach brought the Blues five wins and a draw in six opening Premier League games, including an impressive 3-2 victory over Arsenal in the second round of the competition.

The Reds, on the other side, did well in the final third bagging eight goals in last three games. The streak includes clashes against the likes of Tottenham (1-2) and PSG (3-2), meaning Chelsea’s defense will be on a massive test here.
