Liverpool vs Chelsea FC: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, lineups, h2h results, odds

·2-min read

Two in-form Premier League title contenders collide this evening as Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield.

Both sides have taken six points from their opening two fixtures and between them could well present the biggest threats to Manchester City’s title defence, along with Manchester United and the returning Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chelsea, buoyed by Uefa Super Cup success and the re-signing of Romelu Lukaku, have won London derbies against Crystal Palace and Arsenal as they look to continue their progress under Thomas Tuchel from the back end of last season.

They face their toughest test to date though, against a Liverpool side who have looked back near their title-winning best of a couple of years ago, with Virgil van Dijk restored to the heart of defence for wins over Burnley and newly-promoted Norwich.

Liverpool vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 5:30pm BST kick-off today - Saturday, August 28, 2021.
