Liverpool v Chelsea Match Predictions & Trends

Will someone concede their first goal or is a stalemate on the cards?

Neither Liverpool nor Chelsea have conceded a goal ahead of their highly anticipated clash at Anfield on Saturday evening. Each side has a respective 2-0 and 3-0 win their locker as both sides currently sit on maximum points. Something has to give in the battle of the German managers. Will it be a nil-nil draw to cement both Klopp and Tuchel’s robust defensive start to the season or will one side take the initiative and inflict the first defeat for their opponents?

There have been fewer than 3 goals scored in total in each of Chelsea’s last 7 games and they have scored before half-time in their last 4 fixtures. Chelsea has scored before half-time in their last 4 away games and have outscored their opponents in both halves in each of their last 2 games. Chelsea has scored the opening goal of the game in their last 4 away games and have scored in 76% of their away matches. Thomas Tuchel’s men are undefeated in their last 7 away matches.

Having successfully returned from a serious knee injury that kept him out of the majority of last season and caused him to miss the Euros this summer, Virgil Van Dijk faces his toughest test yet. His direct opponent this week will be Belgium’s record goalscorer Romelu Lukaku who made a goalscoring second Chelsea debut at the Emirates last weekend.
