Last weekend’s goal-less draw against West Ham showed Chelsea still aren’t playing to their potential; and much of the goals this season so far have come from individual brilliance than from a smoothly working system. However, as Sarri has mentioned time and again, it’ll take time for the Blues to settle into the new system. Liverpool, meanwhile, look set to challenge for the title. The Reds have a 100% winning record so far this season with their lethal forward lineup equally supported by solid defense. Chelsea’s defense will be seriously tested against the Anfield side, in what could be a thriller for the neutrals to watch. Chelsea fans, meanwhile, should trim their nails short before the game itself, so they don’t develop a new habit of biting their nails. I’m going for a 2-2 draw in FT and Chelsea to win in the penalties; but it’s probably because I’m wearing a blue-tinted glass right now.
