Chelsea will play tomorrow one of the most crucial matches in the Premier League against Liverpool at the Anfield with several players still suffering from the Champions League match fatigue.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Saturday, November 25 at 6:30 PM BST.
Where: Anfield (away)
Who will play?
Antonio Conte won’t be happy with the available and fit players to choose from, where most of the key players played against Qarabg FK, and still didn’t fully recover from the long journey in a very short time. Conte will most probably play the same players as last week against West Bromwich Albion.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill ( captain)
Midfielders: Davide Zappacosta, Cesc Fabregas, N’Golo Kante, Marcos Alonso, Tiemoue Bakayoko
Forward: Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata
Antonio Conte won’t have a lot of choices to choose from or rest any key players but has to play most of the key players in such an important match such as Kante, Hazard, Cahill, Alonso and others, even though they played less than 48 hours against Qarabag FK.
Liverpool always surprises the big teams, and Chelsea is exhausted. We don’t expect a perfect match for Chelsea, but a draw may be acceptable due to this situation. We predict a 1-1 draw.
Chelsea couldn’t win against Liverpool in 5 league games where Chelsea lost twice and drew three times. On the other hand, Chelsea didn’t lose in Anfield since 2012 as well.
