Chelsea host Liverpool

Chelsea vs Liverpool Preview
The hosts were put to the sword 2-0 by Aston Villa on Saturday, a few hours after the Reds were swept aside 4-1 by Manchester City.
The international break undoubtedly came at the worst time for a Chelsea side who had begun to ease the pressure on Graham Potter’s shoulders in March, but Aston Villa had no difficulties picking up where they left off before the two-week hiatus.
Seeking to build on a streak of three wins and a draw when Aston Villa made the long journey south, Chelsea reverted to an all-too familiar version of themselves under Potter, succumbing to sublime goals from Ollie Watkins and John McGinn while wasting an array of gilt-edged chances in front of goal.
A toxic atmosphere was apparent at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea fell into the bottom half of the Premier League table – now occupying 11th place, wholly unacceptable for a club of their stature and financial firepower – and the reassuring pats on the back from the owners ceased on Sunday evening as Potter was relieved of his duties.
Bruno Saltor will temporarily take charge while the search for a successor gets underway, as the Blues now sit 13 points adrift of a place in the top four thanks to Newcastle United’s win over Manchester United on Sunday.
Almost everything that could go wrong for Chelsea on Saturday did go wrong, and only one of the hosts’ last five Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge has ended in victory, but their upcoming visitors have little reason for unbridled optimism either.
Klopp faced Chelsea in his 1,000th game as a manager in January, but neither set of fans got their money’s worth in a drab goalless stalemate – the third time in a row that both sides have failed to score against one another in 90 minutes – and some may already be placing bets on a similarly tight and uneventful affair taking shape in the capital.
Liverpool vs Chelsea head to head stats
Liverpool have a good historical record against Chelsea and have won 84 out of the 193 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Chelsea’s 65 victories.
The last five matches played between these two teams have ended in draws – Liverpool have never played six consecutive draws against a single opponent in the top flight.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four away games against Chelsea in the Premier League and have never secured a streak of five such matches.
Each of the last three matches between the two teams in all competitions has ended in a 0-0 draw – this fixture could become only the third in English top-flight history to produce four such results in consecutive games.
Chelsea start their 29th game of the Premier League season in 11th place – it is the latest they have started a fixture while in the bottom half of the league table since the 1995-96 season.
Team News and Injury
None of Armando Broja (knee), Cesar Azpilicueta (knee) or Thiago Silva (knee) will be seen in blue for the hosts this week, and the fixture may also come too soon for Edouard Mendy (finger) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (back) to make their returns to the fold.
While Klopp’s midfield options are severely limited, both of Roberto Firmino and Darwin Nunez could freshen up the forward line, while Andrew Robertson endured a torrid afternoon at the Etihad and could be afforded a rest as Kostas Tsimikas comes in.
