Liverpool head into the match against Chelsea having let slip a 3 goal lead away to Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek, which could help Chelsea to exploit any mental weaknesses that the Liverpool team possess.
Despite the poor result, Liverpool are still favourites to win and with their ability to score goals, you would expect the Merseyside club to be getting on the scoresheet. Chelsea, on the other hand, will have their own reasons to be confident, having not lost at Anfield in the league since the 2011/12 season.
Chelsea can also boast a better goal difference and a better defensive record than the Reds, having scored 1 less goal but conceding 7 fewer. Chelsea will be hoping they can overcome Liverpool to get their title defence back on track, having seen Manchester City take an early lead and Manchester United, with former manager Jose Mourinho sitting in 2nd.
Liverpool could climb into the top 4 with a win against Chelsea, should Tottenham fail to beat West Brom at Wembley, or if they manage to beat Chelsea by 3 goals or more, but with the Sevilla match in mind, this Liverpool team are capable of anything, both good and bad.
