Match Preview: Liverpool FC vs Chelsea FC

rsz_z

Chelsea face Liverpool in a clash at the top of the table. The tactical battle between Jose Mourinho & Brendan Rodgers is expected to be a contest of minds. Liverpool are clear by 5 points on top of the table and it is likely they will win the league. But should Chelsea get three points today, there is an outside chance for the title, provided Liverpool drop points.

FUN TRIVIA:

  • Chelsea were the last team to beat Liverpool in the Premier League – at Stamford Bridge on 29 December 2013.
  • Liverpool have scored at least 2 goals in their last 14 home matches in the Premier League.

In spite of Jose Mourinho intending to field a weakened team, the game will prove to be a thorough entertainer.

  1. Gerard has been given the league title as a reward for being english and as england captain,he deserves to win the Title,wether he merits it or not.City and Chelsea were felled to allow liverpool pick up the title and honour gerard.

    Jose has no business managing Cfc for that match,rui faria should just take over so mou can training the real team while the game is going on.Why bother to go to anfield to be insulted.

    So much for english football.When England wins the world cup.Just being honest in my views.

  2. As per Jose being dynamic, if he were he would unlocked defences of the mediocre teams that sit deep against us.
    I bet Jose only practice positional strategies in defence and breaking on the counter against possession based teams, just a guess. Either way, The squad @ Jose disposal is expected to play a more intricate pace based football- Like a Madrid or a Dortmund to me but Jose prefers them to conform to his already found out style of sitting deep and hitting teams on d counter and when it is vice versa- his teams lack the idea to break down teams with the expection of individual brilliance from the likes of Hazard and Oscar. Our play is too predictable and slow when we v been given the initiative to come @ a team- If Jose can balance or marry his strategy and best obvious strategy a team consisting of Eden, Oscar, Willian, Schurrle, Salah shd b playing den our team can beat anyone. Till then we can only hope- that a trophyless season wouldn’t bring about a managerial change- No manager in the Roman’s Era has survived a trophyless season.

    All the best against Liverpool and Atletico
