Premier League – Liverpool vs Chelsea prediction, team news, lineup

Liverpool will face Chelsea in gameweek three of the 2021-22 Premier League season on Saturday night. In the previous match, Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated Burnley 2-0, while Chelsea defeated Arsenal by the same score. Here is our expert guess on Liverpool vs Chelsea football prediction, team news, and lineup for the first Premier League of the season.

Team news

Liverpool

In Andy Robertson’s absence, Kostas Tsimikas excelled, but the Scot is expected to reclaim his starting spot here.

Thiago is also hoping to make his first appearance of the season, while Fabinho returned after he missed last weekend’s win over Burnley due to his father’s untimely death

Due to the birth of his first child, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was also unavailable last weekend, but he should be available for selection this weekend.

Diogo Jota has started the season well, but Roberto Firmino’s work rate may force the Brazilian to be recalled against Chelsea.

Chelsea

Both Hakim Ziyech and N’Golo Kante returned from injuries to play off the bench against Arsenal last weekend. The latter is likely to replace Mateo Kovacic in the starting lineup.

Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will miss the game after testing positive for coronavirus.

Trevoh Chalobah can consider himself unlucky to have been benched against Arsenal, but he is also unlikely to be recalled here.

For the time being Ben Chilwell may have to remain on the bench as Marcos Alonso has had a strong start to the season at left wing-back.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction

Liverpool and Chelsea have both started the season with perfect records beating Burnley and Chelsea with 2-0 match scores. Chelsea has become a stronger team with the signing of Romelu Lukaku and his duel with Virgil van Dijk on Saturday is not to be missed.

Last time the Blues won over Liverpool and that is their only victory in the last six Premier League meetings between the two teams.

Tuchel’s tenacious defense will consider themselves fortunate if they do not concede against the Reds, but with attacking threats coming from all angles, we believe the Blues’ firepower will help them maintain their unbeaten start to the season at the expense of Liverpool’s.

Lineup

Liverpool possible starting lineup:

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane

Chelsea possible starting lineup:

Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku

Our Prediction: Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea
