Sure straight win for today
We are heading to the Anfield Road where Liverpool will host Chelsea in a match from the 21th round of the Premier League. Let’s see what we can tell you in these sure straight win for today.
Liverpool are most certainly not having the season they wished for. The Reds are 9th in the standings with 28 points and almost 20 points behind the leader Arsenal. The fans didn’t expect such a mediocre performance so Jurgen Klopp and the players should provide them with some answers.
Liverpool lost their last two games in the league against Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion. In these two matches the Reds scored just one goal and conceded six – not an achievement they can be proud of. The new signing Cody Gakpo debuted against the Seagulls, but his appearance on the pitch didn’t help Liverpool very much. Still, Gakpo is expected to start against Chelsea as well.
Chelsea are in a similar situation as their next opponent at the moment. The Blues are 10th in the standings with 28 points and also being average at best during the 2022/23 campaign. They changed managers, but the arrival of the new head coach Graham Potter didn’t bring the results that were expected.
Still, Chelsea won their last game in the league which boosted their confidence a little bit. The Blues hosted Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge and celebrated a tough, but important 1-0 win. The German international Kai Havertz scored the winning goal in the middle of the second half. Chelsea didn’t shine in this game, but they needed the win.
The Blues’ new signing Mykhailo Mudryk is expected to make his debut against Liverpool. The Ukrainian was bought for a lot of money and there are huge expectations about him.
That’s the sure straight win for today for the Premier League derby between Liverpool and Chelsea on Saturday. Let’s see who will take this one home.
