Chelsea vs Liverpool head to head
Chelsea have won one of our past 12 Premier League meetings with Liverpool (five draws, six defeats), beating them 1-0 at the Bridge in May 2018 thanks to a first-half Olivier Giroud header.
Liverpool are seeking a fifth consecutive Premier League win against Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho was in charge the last time we came away from Anfield with three points. Cesar Azpilicueta was in a side that won 2-1 in November 2014 with goals from Gary Cahill and Diego Costa, after Emre Can opened the scoring early on. Since then we have drawn three, all 1-1, and lost the last two.
This will be our 90th game at Anfield and will equal, with Goodison Park, the most games played at an away ground in our history. The reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge, which Liverpool won 2-0, was only the second time in 24 games in all competitions that we have failed to score at least one goal against the Reds.
Biggest league win for each team:
Chelsea 6-1 Liverpool – 1937/38 – Division One
Liverpool 6-0 Chelsea – 1934/35 – Division One
Chelsea’s biggest league win at Anfield is 4-1 in 1907/08 and 2005/06
Jones Knows prediction
For all the control and defensive solidity Chelsea have shown at the start of Thomas Tuchel’s reign, they have rarely looked ready to cut loose and make their dominance count in matches. They’ve scored just 10 goals in his nine games. When Liverpool are at their best, they are the antithesis of what Tuchel is doing at Chelsea. It’s all about direct, to the point football where chances are created and every bit of possession comes with a purpose. Of course, this isn’t vintage Liverpool on show at the moment with too many of their players still finding their top form.
However, one player looks to be playing himself back into good nick and that’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.
It was yet another encouraging display from him at Sheffield United. The rampaging Liverpool full-back averaged an assist every 0.4 games last season as he racked up 13 in total across the title-winning campaign, going off around 5/4 every week for an assist. His return has dropped sharply this season with just three assists grabbed at a rate of one every 0.1 matches.
