Chelsea v Liverpool Live Stream Online: Watch Online, Match Preview, Team News, Match Statistics

This season’s struggles for Liverpool have been well documented. They have given up the first goal in five of their last seven games, a record. Their high-pressing “Gegenpressing” style has allowed teams to play long balls over the top of the midfield, frequently leaving the center-backs chasing down two, or even three, attackers. It will be interesting to see if Klopp makes any changes for this crucial game. Liverpool cannot afford to lose two games in a row if their Champions League ambitions are to be realized. Here are three matchups to watch: Trent Alexander-Arnold v Steven Bergwijn Steven Bergwijn has adapted well to life in the Eredivisie, scoring seven goals in as many games. After falling out of favor with Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, the Dutch international is experiencing a renaissance. IMAGO / XinhuaThe 24-year-old is quick and technical, and he’ll be looking to receive balls in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold. This year, the English international has appeared disinterested at times, particularly when defending. On multiple occasions, he has been seen ball-watching as goals have been scored, and he has lacked his usual energy and tempo. We’re hoping to see a more motivated Alexander-Arnold in this game. Whether he is exposed or not as he joins the forward line and attempts to link up with Mohamed Salah and Harvey Elliot could decide the game.Scroll to ContinueLuis Diaz v Jurrien TimberAt only 21 years old, Jurrien Timber is already regarded as a world-class defender by many. He is quick and strong, and he will be tasked with containing Luis Diaz, arguably Liverpool’s most in-form player. The Columbian International has four goals in seven games and will be a handful for Timber and Co. The speed with which he can cut inside from the left will be a real test for the Dutch International.IMAGO / sportphoto24It remains to be seen whether Diaz will be linking up with Darwin Nunez or Roberto Firmino, but the 25-year-old has been the man to watch of late.Thiago Alcantara v Edson lvarezAlso with seven goals in seven games, talented midfielder Edson Alvarez In the middle of the park, the Mexican International is a legitimate attacking threat. and has played at the highest level.IMAGO / sportphoto24His link-up play with Steven Bergwijn and Mohammed Kudus, the rising Ghanaian international, has been outstanding. Thiago will be the key figure in shutting him down. It’s quite simple if Thiago has a good game and Liverpool can control the middle of the park they could potentially win this game.A win is badly needed for Liverpool if they have any chance of getting through the group stage and into the round of 16.Read More Liverpool CoverageFrom Gegenpressing To Depressing – How Liverpool’s Highline Is Currently FailingExclusive: Jose Enrique Gives Verdict On Liverpool Signing Of Arthur MeloReport: Three High-Profile Summer Signings Turned Down By Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp RevealedLiverpool Youngster Ben Doak Gets Call Up For Scotland U21s Following Impressive Form’I Don’t Think He’s Got A Long-Term Future At Liverpool’ – Pundit On Reds Midfielder’Milner Can Still Play At The Top Level’ – Pundit Launches Defence Of Liverpool Midfielder Follow Us On: Twitter | YouTube | Instagram | Facebook | Spotify | TikTok |
