• There is no longer a draw that has been a long shot for 7 games in a row before this.
• Liverpool is better than Chelsea. It’s a different story, a different level. In a way that if the Singha goalkeeper had not made a save, the Swans would have already won by 6-7 points.
• And this might be a simulation before the clash in the Carabao Cup final.
7 games that can’t be eaten
It was a bizarre game, following Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Anfield with a goal from Mason Mount at the start of 2021, and the battle between the Swans and the Lions after that…
- Aug. 2021 Draw 1-1
Jan. 2022 Draw 2-2
Feb. 2022 Draw 0-0 (Liverpool won 11-10 Carabao Cup on penalties)
May 2022 Draw 0-0 (Liverpool won 6-5 on penalties in the FA Cup)
Jan 2023 Draw 0-0
Apr 2023 Draw 0-0
Aug 2023 Draw 1-1
Didn’t score at all in 2 games last season. This continued from 0-0 in the finals of the two cup competitions. In the opening game of this season. Liverpool took the lead first through Luis Diaz in the 18th minute, but Chelsea rallied. Quick reclaimed 1-1 from Axel Disasi in the 37th minute. In the second half, there were no more shots.
There have been 7 draws. The game at Anfield tonight. Which will probably Jurgen Klopp last time in the home duel with Chelsea is therefore watche especially by many sides.
However, the direction before this game is clearly more towards Liverpool. With OPTA Analyst estimating the chances that Liverpool have a chance of winning at 54.9%, while Chelsea have the right to win at only 19.5%.
The line-up is predictable.
Perhaps, to use the word “so far”, neither Jurgen Klopp nor Mauricio Pochettino have able to use their best players. With many injury problems. The players who have been holding on have not able to shake themselves off since the start of the season.
Liverpool’s injured players who are not available to play. This match are the same old faces as Joel Matip, Stefan Bycetic, Thiago Alcantara, Kostas Tsimikas and Mohaha. Mod Salah while Wataru Endo still have to go to the 2023 Asian Cup.
Andrew Robertson may be fit again. But still unable to take the title back from Joe Gomez, as well as Trent Alexander-Arnold on the other side. Had to sit on the bench for 20 kids like Connor Bradley.
It’s equal to the backup full-back pair Gomez – Bradley. Who have played in the starting lineup for 5 games in a row.
For the offensive game that still doesn’t have Salah (and it’s expected that he won’t have one for a while), it’s a panel of Darwin Nuñez – Diogo Jota – Luis Diaz, with Cody Gakpo sitting on the bench .
Pochettino’s side is still missing Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Marc Cucurella, Romeo Lavia, Robert Sanchez, Lesley U. Gochukwu, Trevoh Chalobah, including Levi Colville and Nicholas Jackson, who even finished their mission with Senegal (eliminated in the Round of 16, losing on penalties to Ivory Coast ) already, but it’s still a little too early to return to the team.
Chelsea’s first 11 today changed from the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last Friday, just 1 position, captain Ben Chilwell starting in place of Alfie Gilchrist and Axel Di. Sazi returns to right-back.
