The Blues came from a goal down to beat Jurgen Klopp’s outfit 2-1 at Anfield and hand them their first defeat of the season, with Eden Hazard scoring a spectacular winner in the final minutes.
However, the Reds will see the weekend’s game as far more important and are 6/4 (2.50) favourites with SportPesa to make it seven straight league wins to start the season.
Liverpool have started the season in enviable fashion as they look to wrestle the title away from Manchester City. Klopp’s outfit have barely had to break a sweat to win their first six games and will be looking to take that form to Stamford Bridge.
The likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have continued where they left off, netting nine of the Reds’ 14 goals, whilst a Virgil van Dijk-led defence has conceded just twice.
Although the Reds did not have a good record at fellow ‘big six’ sides last season (D1 L4), they have already seen off Tottenham 2-1 at Wembley this term.
They will also take heart from the fact that they have tasted league defeat against Chelsea just once in the last seven meetings, stretching back to May 2015.
