The current average of 4.4 goals per league match involving Chelsea is the joint-highest in the Premier League (PL) entering this round. Significantly, four of the Blues’ five PL matches played so far have witnessed both teams scoring, while four have featured at least four goals either way.
However, just two of the last eight competitive H2Hs between these sides have featured more than two goals (not including extra-time), and Chelsea has scored two goals or more just once in the last 13 competitive matches against Liverpool.
Liverpool, meanwhile, enters the round with the joint-best defense in the league (0.8 goals conceded per match on average) and looking to extend their current 100% record in the league. 14 straight PL wins dating back to March is already a record, but at Stamford Bridge, Jürgen Klopp’s men have notably won just two of the last seven PL H2Hs.
