Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Liverpool will look to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Brighton when they take on Chelsea in the Premier League derby. The Reds have been underperforming in the 2022/2023 season, but Saturday’s clash could be the turning point for Jurgen Klopp’s troops, who are eyeing a spot in the Champions League. January signing Cody Gakpo has yet to open his goal-scoring account, but seeing that Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota remain in the recovery room, the former PSV man should continue to lead the line for the hosts.
Fellow forward Darwin Nunez should recover in time to face the Blues. Graham Potter’s troops, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Crystal Palace, and they managed to get one. Chelsea aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive as well, and, taking everything into account, both teams to score betting option should be considered. New recruit Joao Felix serves the last of his two-match ban, while all Sterling, Pulisic, Chilwell, James, Fofana, and Kante should miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Henderson):
Jordan Henderson is an English football player born on the 17th of June 1990 in Sunderland. Henderson started his football career playing for Sunderland. After a loan period where he played for Coventry City Henderson got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 18 million euro. Henderson is one of the starting eleven of England as well where he made his debut in November 2010.
He played for England during EURO 2012 and the World Cup 2014.Henderson is a centre/defensive midfielder which is known for his stamina and great tackling. Because of his vision Henderson got chosen as the captain of Liverpool after Steven Gerrard left the club. Henderson didn’t win any individual prizes yet but can be considered as one of the best players in his position.
In season 2011/2012 Henderson won the League Cup with Liverpool. Henderson played for over 20 games in the English national team.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
