Weekend Matches: Liverpool, Chelsea, Totthenham

Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in the Premier League this afternoon.

The crunch clash kicks off at 4.30 p.m. with Jurgen Klopp’s side hoping to maintain their perfect start.

The Reds have won five out of five so far in the league and remain top of the table.

Man City piled on the pressure with an 8-0 home win against Watford on Saturday but Liverpool have a chance to restore their five-point cushion.

Both Chelsea and Liverpool suffered defeats in their last outings in UEFA Champions League against Valencia and Napoli respectively and would be looking to bounce back in the Super Sunday clash.

It is worthy to note that Chelsea have won just one of their last nine Premier League meetings with Liverpool (D5 L3), beating them 1-0 in May 2018 thanks to an Olivier Giroud strike.

Kick off is 4.30 p.m.
