Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

The Blues, on the other hand, continue life without Belgian superstar Eden Hazard and considering that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United at the weekend, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Liverpools party in Istanbul. In their last meeting in a competitive game Jurgen Klopps men emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Mohamed Salah and Co.

Reigning Europa League champions Chelsea made their return to the Champions League in midweek, but it didnt exactly go smoothly for Frank Lampards side. Now, the 2 beaten European champions go head to head in the Premier League, and both will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeats. They lost 1-0 at home to Valencia, although that indignity was softened by the fact that Champions League holders Liverpool also succumbed to defeat.

The defeat was Chelseas heaviest since a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City back in February. In comparison to the Merseysiders, Chelseas season could not have got off to a worse possible start. The team then will be doing their upmost to avoid back-to-back defeats for the first time since March 2018. Under new boss Frank Lampard, the Blues were humbled 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford despite not putting in a disastrous performance.

Frank Lampards troops aim to rejoin the race for the title and we predict that they will go for a win in Sundays showdown in London. The Blues impressed in a 5-2 win at Wolverhampton, with England rising star Abraham scoring a hat-trick for the capital club. All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby on Matchday 6.

They also won the UEFA Super Cup in 2001 and 1977, with another win this time around seeing them draw level with Spanish giants Real Madrid. Heading into the game, reigning European champions Liverpool have the chance to become the joint third most successful club in Super Cup history. The Reds have appeared in five editions of the match, last running out victors in 2005 as they overcame Russian outfit CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Monaco. Of course, they will be extremely confident going into the match having memorably lifted the UEFA Champions League against fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur back in June.

Head to Head

All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby on Matchday 6. The Blues impressed in a 5-2 win at Wolverhampton, with England rising star Abraham scoring a hat-trick for the capital club. Frank Lampards troops aim to rejoin the race for the title and we predict that they will go for a win in Sundays showdown in London.

It has to be noted that he was named Romas player of the season (2015/2016). After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone.

The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.

Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of 11 million.

Adrian was called on that day and is likely to start in goal. One big loss for the Reds will be the absence of stopper Alisson after the Brazilian picked up an injury in the victory over the Canaries. Full-back Nathaniel Clyne remains ruled out with a cruciate ligament injury that is likely to restrict him the sidelines for the majority of the campaign. Mo Salah will be keen to extend his promising start to the season after getting off to the perfect start with a goal at the weekend.

Chelsea fans will be wanting a reaction from their team following their humbling against Manchester United at the weekend. Whilst they will create a few problems for the Reds, that will not be forthcoming on Wednesday night. Jurgen Klopps team have far too much quality for their opponents and whilst it should be an entertaining match, Liverpool will run out relatively comfortable winners.
