Chelsea failed last season and failed to qualify for European competition at the end of the season. Because of this, the club went through a lot of changes this summer.
The English team sold a lot of players, and also changed the head coach, which became Mauricio Pochettino. Christopher Nkunku, Nicholas Jackson, Axel Disasi, Leslie Ugochukwu and Robert Sanchez also joined the club.
During the off-season, Chelsea did not lose a single friendly match. Pochettino’s team drew with Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund, and also won over Brighton and Fulham.
Meanwhile, Liverpool also had difficulties last season, and the team only managed to get into the Europa League, and this is clearly not what fans and management were expecting from the club.
Quite a few events have also taken place in the club this summer. The main shock for the team under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp was the departure of Fabinho and George Henderson, who left for Saudi Arabia.
But Liverpool were not left without newcomers. The club was acquired by Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister. And just the other day, the transfer of Moises Caicedo from Brighton is expected.
Head to Head
Last season, Liverpool and Chelsea played two matches that ended in a draw (0-0). Before that, two cup matches between the two teams also ended in a draw with a score (0-0).

We expect productive actions from this match, despite the boring games in past personal meetings. Both clubs have an excellent squad and will try to score from the first minutes.
Liverpool have problems in defense, and you can count on an individual total from the hosts. It is difficult to predict the result of the match, but we expect an equal fight.
Prediction for this match: Chelsea total over 1.5
- Total over 2.5 goals.
