Live streaming epl today on 29.9.2018 Chelsea vs Liverpool.
Licking their wounds from their midweek Carabao Cup defeat to this game’s opponents, league leaders Liverpool (ahead of this round) travel to third-placed Chelsea in arguably the top match of this weekend’s Premier League (PL) action.
Chelsea have scored the first goal in four of their six PL matches, but have also showed they can handle going a goal down against top opposition when they overcame Liverpool’s opening goal at Anfield to win 2-1 midweek.
That cup win made it seven wins in nine attempts (in all competitions) for manager Maurizio Sarri, but he faces a real test here, against a Liverpool side that remains the only PL team with a 100% record. Moreover, Chelsea have won just two of their last eight home league H2Hs against Liverpool (W2, D2, L4).
With victory over Southampton in their last outing, Liverpool set a new club record of seven-straight competitive victories at the start of a season. That sequence ended midweek, but should they win in London, they will be the first team since Chelsea (2005/06) to win their opening seven matches.
It’s now eight away wins in the last 13 for Liverpool (W8, D2, L3), but they have conceded at least one goal in six of their last seven away matches.
