On Sunday, August 13, 2023 Chelsea will compete against Liverpool in the Matchday 1 of the Premier League match. Watch here, Chelsea vs Liverpool live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Chelsea and Liverpool will face each other in the top match of the first week of the 2023/24 Premier League. This game will take place on Sunday 13th August 2023 at Stamford Bridge. This is an opportunity for the two big teams to show their strengths and start the new season well.
Chelsea had a disappointing season when they only finished 12th in the 2022/23 Premier League standings. This is an unbecoming result for a team with glorious tradition and history. To improve the situation, Chelsea’s management decided to change coaches and appointed Mauricio Pochettino, who had coached Tottenham and PSG.
The Argentinian has proved his worth by guiding Chelsea unbeaten in five friendlies ahead of the new season. From there, Chelsea won three wins and two draws against strong opponents such as Newcastle and Dortmund.
In the 2023 summer transfer market, Chelsea spent £52 million to bring in Christopher Nkunku from Leipzig. The French striker is expected to become a mainstay of Chelsea’s front line. However, he picked up a bad knee injury in a friendly against Dortmund and was ruled out for at least four months.
Apart from Nkunku, Chelsea also have several other players who are having problems with their health such as Badiashile, Broja, Chukmunonso, W. Fofana and Bettinelli. This situation made Pochettino have to think hard when putting together a team.
On the other hand, Liverpool also did not lose in terms of performance during the preparation period. They had three wins in the last five friendlies and lost only once to Bayern Munich, the reigning German champions. This defeat was also not too bad because Liverpool had won twice and only conceded the decisive goal in injury time.
Liverpool also has an advantage in the meeting record by winning 78 times and only losing 61 times in 184 meetings with Chelsea. However, in the last six meetings, Liverpool could not win in normal time and only got a draw.
In the 2023 summer transfer market, Liverpool strengthened their attack line by recruiting Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig at a price of £ 70 million. The Hungarian will be the perfect combination with Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo. Meanwhile in the Liverpool camp, only Bajcetic (muscle cramp) and Thiago (hip injury) are doubtful to appear.
According to Sportmole, Chelsea and Liverpool are two evenly matched teams based on the latest information above. However, Chelsea may win thanks to home advantage and a resurgence under Pochettino.
