Premier League: Liverpool Meets Chelsea for Game of the SeasonPublished November 8, 2014 by Amir G
Liverpool host Premier League leader Chelsea at Anfield for a match with a game of the season potential (12:45pm UK time).
Anfield stadium will be the venue for a great meeting today between home team Liverpool and the unstoppable Chelsea (12:45pm UK time).
Chance for Liverpool
Liverpool is positioned seventh in the Premier League table with 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. The team has won just once in its last five games in all competitions – this emphasizes just how much they need this win today. Boss Brendan Rodgers rested seven players from Liverpool's starting eleven when they went to Madrid and lost 1-0 to Real, showing the seriousness of the man at the helm for today's game.
Liverpool has also got a bill to settle with Chelsea: Reaching last season's deciding moments the Blues beat Liverpool at Anfield, blowing open the championship race and ultimately taking it away from the Reds.
Test for Chelsea
Chelsea is currently leading the Premier League table at 26 points with a clean sheet, winning 6 games and drawing only two. While they've beaten Arsenal, their two draws came against the two Manchesters, and the question for today is whether the magic will keep working against Liverpool and away from home.
Boss Jose Mourinho is equipped with a great arsenal with playmakers such as Cesc Fabregas and two big goalscorers, Eden Hazard with eight goals to his name this season and Diego Costa with nine. Chelsea had a disappointing game against Maribor in the Champions League on Wednesday which saw them off with a 1-1 draw, when Hazard missed a penalty shot.
