English Premier League

Starting XI: Chelsea v Liverpool

English Premier League 

Teams: Chelsea v Liverpool

Date: 29 September 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Just days after their Carabao Cup encounter, Chelsea and Liverpool will once again do battle in the Premier League this evening.

On Wednesday, the Blues came from behind to secure a 2-1 win over the Reds in the Carabao Cup at Anfield, with Emerson and Eden Hazard getting the goals.
 
That was Liverpool's first defeat in all competitions this season, but they are the only side left in the Premier League with a perfect record.
 
The Reds romped to a 3-0 win over Southampton last weekend, stretching their winning run to six matches this campaign.
 
Chelsea, meanwhile, dropped points for the first time as they were held to a 0-0 draw by West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium last weekend.
 
In head-to-head statistics, these two sides have met on 170 occasions, with Liverpool boasting 71 wins compared to 59 for Chelsea while 40 matches have ended in draws.
 
When these two clubs met in this fixture last season, Olivier Giroud's solitary strike secured a 1-0 win for the Blues.
 
 
Here's how they line up:

Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rüdiger, Marcos Alonso; Kovacic, Jorginho, Kanté; Hazard, Giroud, Willian.
 
Liverpool:  Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Sadio Mané, Firmino, Salah.
