The Reds are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League games (W7 D4), the longest current run without a defeat for any side in the competition. This run started with a 0-0 draw at Chelsea, which is the only time they’ve failed to score in these 11 matches.
Yet another new era is about to dawn at Chelsea this weekend as Mauricio Pochettino takes charge of his first game in charge at Stamford Bridge. The former Tottenham Hotspur manager has much work to do to improve on last season’s underperformance. But with the financial backing and quality in his squad, a Champions League place will be the aim come the end of the season.
The Argentinian boss couldn’t have asked for a much more difficult start though as the visitors to West London on the first Super Sunday of the season are Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. Fresh from a relatively disappointing season themselves,
Liverpool will have a new-look midfield for the first time in this Premier League match, following the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Christopher Nkunku’s former RB Leipzig teammate Dominik Szoboszlai. They will look to replace Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, who’ve both left Liverpool this summer to join Saudi Arabian clubs.
