Liverpool head to Stamford Bridge on Sunday to take on Chelsea and this match is undoubtedly going be the show-stopper during Matchweek 2 of the Premier League.
Both Chelsea and Liverpool kicked off their respective campaigns with a win last weekend but there have been some people who fear this high-profile clash could turn out to be a cagey affair, thereby ending into a stalemate.
But according to Michael Owen, the Chelsea vs Liverpool game has a goal-fest written all over it.
He wrote for BetVictor: “This is clearly the stand-out fixture of Matchday 2 and I can’t wait to watch these fiercely competitive rivals go head-to-head.
“Chelsea started their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 win away at the Amex stadium and Frank Lampard will have been pleased with the way that some of his new signings seem to be settling in.
“Timo Werner was a constant threat to Brighton and looks like he is going to adapt very quickly to the rigours of the Premier League.
“Liverpool beat Leeds United 4-3 in their opening day fixture and while Jurgen Klopp will have been delighted to see his strikers picking up where they left off last season, he will have been concerned with the way Leeds picked their defence apart on way too many occasions.
“If there is one certainty in this match, it’s that there will be goals! I fancy an entertaining, end to end clash between the two sides with honours even at the final whistle. 2-2 for me.”
Both the sides will surely eye all three points given that this is only the second game of the new season and there’s not too much pressure on them yet.
A loss will not do much harm to either of the two sides but a win will undoubtedly help them remain closer to the top of the table.
