Liverpool vs Chelsea: Injury update, team news & formation

Liverpool and Chelsea meet at Anfield on Saturday with both sides aiming to continue their strong start to the Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have recorded two wins from their two matches played, having overcome both Norwich City and Burnley without conceding a goal.

The Blues, too, have six points from a possible six, having overcome local rivals Crystal Palace and Arsenal also while keeping two clean sheets.

Thomas Tuchel’s men triumphed on their last visit to Anfield in March and another victory for Chelsea can be backed at 19/10 (2.90) with bet365.

Liverpool, however, boast a strong record in this fixture, having won four of their last five league clashes against the Blues and are available at 29/20 (2.45) with the draw on offer at 23/10 (3.30).

The game is being shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the United Kingdom (UK). Sky Go will be streaming the game live online.

Liverpool have doubts over Fabinho who suffered a family bereavement last week while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner are also rated as doubtful.

Chelsea for their part are without Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek who are both ruled out following positive coronavirus tests.

There is plenty of optimism in both camps heading into this game and rightly so given their positive respective performances.

Liverpool look to have recovered their defensive solidity thanks in large part to the return of both Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, while up front the attacking quartet of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have all already found the back of the net this term.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have taken a considerable step up in quality from last season with the signing of Romelu Lukaku and the way the Blues swept past Arsenal last week looked ominous for the rest of the division.

Both sides have more than enough quality in the final third to get on the score sheet this weekend, especially given the confidence the attacking players on the pitch will have from having already netted this season.

Both teams to score looks an extremely strong selection for this game at 3/4 (1.75) while combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to a healthy-looking 13/10 (2.30).

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Both teams to score at 3/4 (1.75) for a 3pt stake with bet365
