Chelsea vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge.
Both these teams are actively in the race for the top-most spot, but Manchester City seems to have taken a healthy lead. Likely, a win is a must for both Chelsea and Liverpool this weekend.
Both teams are in great form, and are consistently scoring goals. The pair have seldom lost through this campaign, and it’s a given that we are about to witness a fierce encounter at the Stamford Bridge this Sunday.
Moreover, it’s a matter of pride as well, for the two teams. Only a single point separates the pair in the second and the third spots, and either will be determined to show to the rest of the league that they are the better squad.
Expect an exciting ninety minutes this weekend, and most probably goals from either end of the pitch.
The Blues recorded a 1-1 draw the last match-day at home, against Brighton. They are on a seven-game winless run, and had also remained so in 19 of their past 20 fixtures. In the process, they had gone on a seven-match winning streak as well.
On the other hand, the Reds lost the past game week (which was only their second loss in the campaign), against Leicester. However, before that they were on a ten-fixture unbeaten streak, and eight of these were wins.
All through this stretch, they have been scoring goals in plenty. In fact, they have scored the second-most number of goals in the competition (50 from just 19 games), while 17 of the total 20 teams are yet cross the 35-goal mark.
Taking into account these stats, expect goals to come from both teams this Sunday.
