Blues Vs Reds to entertain this weekend

In the showpiece of this weekend’s Premier League Chelsea host the champions, Liverpool, hoping to dent their hopes of retaining their crown. It has been widely stated the ambition the Blues have shown in the transfer market this summer and so this is a welcome early test of whether they can compete with Jurgen Klopp’s men. The Reds did the double over Frank Lampard and his team in 2019/20 winning 2-1 and 5-3 on their procession to the title, after a shaky opening day performance they arrive at Stamford Bridge with a point to prove. The Reds are strong favourites despite the Blues’ investment, this one will live up to expectation.

Last time out

Both sides got away with one on gameweek one it would seem as they rode their luck against unfancied opposition in Brighton and Hove Albion and Leeds United.

To start with Chelsea’s visit to the South Coast and a trip that proved a huge learning experience for the new look side. Kai Havertz and Timo Werner shared the spotlight with the latter being the more impressive, winning an early penalty and stretching the Seagulls backline all evening with his pace and runs in behind. Graham Potter’s men will be left ruing missed chances after edging the expected goals battle, to which Chelsea’s total was somewhat inflated by Jorginho’s penalty and won the shot count 13-10. A positive start to the campaign that evidently highlighted their need for attacking reinforcements.

Some poor defending including an individual error from Mr. Reliable Virgil Van Dijk saw Marcelo Bielsa’s newly promoted men equalise three times before Rodrigo Moreno gave away a clumsy late penalty that saw Mohamed Salah complete his hattrick and Liverpool escape with the three points. It will not have been a pleasing display for Klopp, and it demonstrated some of the complacency his team showed after being crowned champions early after lockdown. Leeds are dynamic and potentially devastating going forward, but they do not boast the riches and talent of Chelsea, it will need to be a much improved rearguard action should they take anything away from West London.

Ones to watch

Precocious full back Reece James will be looking to continue his good form and retain his place in the first team after hitting the headlines with a screamer. Consistency will be crucial if he is to establish himself as the club’s starting right back in front of fading club legend Cesar Azpilicueta. Werner will be in the spotlight once again, with scrutiny on his goalscoring after drawing a blank in the first outing, with Salah looking to extend his lead at the top of the scoring charts against his former employers.

This very compelling matchup will not disappoint, which way it will swing, I am going to sit on the fence.
