class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With so much attacking talent in action and both defences looking creaky, Al Hain-Cole expects plenty of entertainment when the Blues face Klopp's men
Chelsea’s new-look side will be hoping to lay down a marker when they welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge for Sunday’s Premier League clash.
Frank Lampard has spent big in strengthening his squad over the summer, bringing in Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech for considerable transfer fees.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Latest Odds
Having opened the season with a 3-1 win at Brighton, they are available at 21/10 (3.10) with bet365 to really announce themselves with a big victory over the champions.
However, the Reds have only lost one of their last 11 league encounters against this opposition and are 6/5 (2.20) favourites to come out on top for the fourth successive meeting in the league.
Just two of the hosts’ last 25 matches in their own back yard have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them playing out a stalemate in this one.

Christian Pulisic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Werner will all face late fitness tests and Ben Chilwell, Billy Gilmour and Ziyech are all ruled out, although Thiago Silva could be in contention and Mateo Kovacic is available following suspension.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Preview
Blues supporters have been particularly excited at the signings of goalscorers like Werner and Havertz, who will also now be licking their lips at the prospect of Sunday’s clash.
Considering Jurgen Klopp’s men conceded three goals at home to newly-promoted Leeds in an unconvincing defensive performance last weekend, the star-studded Chelsea attack looks set to enjoy a very fruitful outing.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
While a repeat of Liverpool’s 5-3 win from July’s clash is probably unlikely, the attacking talent on display makes odds of 5/6 (1.83) well worth backing on both sides getting on the scoresheet and over 2.5 goals going in for the third encounter in a row between this pair.
