Chelsea vs Liverpool

by Larry Uriri on Premier League

The battle for the top spot in the Barclays Premier League continues this weekend as  Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea side plays host to Luis Suarez and his Liverpool army.

CHELSEA FC VS LIVERPOOL FCPrior to this fixture, Liverpool were top of the table before Christmas, only to fall down 3 places following their controversial Boxing Day loss to Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City (Liverpool placed 4th and Man City 2nd). Jose Mourinho’s  AWAY draw against current leaders Arsenal at the Emirates on Monday and 1-0 HOME victory against Swansea has seen his Chelsea side placed 3rd.

Current form

Both teams are definitely strong contenders for the title irrespective of their current position; as a WIN for either of the teams will see them get closer to achieving this. Chelsea although placed 3rd (37 PTS: 11-W, 4-D, 3-L) is only 2 points behind 1st placed Arsenal. Liverpool have been superb this season, making them strong contenders as well (all thanks to their marks man Luis Suarez), having secured 36 points from 18 games (11-W, 3-D, 4-L).

Playing at HOME (ranked 3rd) this season, Chelsea have secured 25 points from 9 games and are yet to loose a game (8-W, 1-D, 0-L) . Liverpool on the other hand have been far from perfect, as they have only secured 1 WIN in their last 6 AWAY games this season (1-W, 2-D, 3-L).

Head To Head

Jose Mourinho has got his work cut out for him, not only are they facing the 2nd most attacking side in the league this season (scoring an average 2.o goals per AWAY game this season), but his side have failed to record a victory over their visitors (Liverpool) in their last 3 HOME games (Stamford Bridge).
