Chelsea host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Sept. 29. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Chelsea return to Stamford Bridge looking to prove their 2-1 away win over Liverpool in the Carabao Cup was no accident. By all accounts, the start of Maurizio Sarri’s tenure at the helm has been a very auspicious one. Were it not for the away tie to West Ham last week, the Blues would be tied with Liverpool atop the Premier League. Antonio Rudiger, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Pedro are the injury concerns for Maurizio Sarri who may decide to continue rolling with the winning hand and start Anders Christensen and Cesc Fabregas, while Jorginho and Eden Hazard should be back in the starting lineup.
Despite the loss, Liverpool controlled the majority of the run of play against Chelsea on Wednesday night. The return to the starting lineup of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson will help contain Chelsea’s build-up on the flanks, an area where they seemed to be suffering defensively in the Carabao. Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson and Alisson should all return to the starting line-up. Dejan Lovren may also be back partnering up with Virgil van Dijk in defense, as both center-backs are returning from injuries.
The Premier League match between Chelsea and Liverpool will be broadcast live on NBC. Live streaming is available on NBC Sports, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions, either online or through the NBC Sports app.
Chelsea have the home field advantage and the mental edge after their win on Wednesday night, but with the return of Salah, Henderson and their two starting outside backs Liverpool should get at least a valuable point at Stamford Bridge
