In view of Sunday’s match between Liverpool and Chelsea, let’s take a look at the games played recently by the two teams. Both teams got off to a great start to their Premier League campaigns as Chelsea managed to win two of the two matches Chelsea had, as did Liverpool. In the English Premier League, the two teams have played 23 games, of which Chelsea won 5, Liverpool won 12, and both teams drew 6.
Chelsea has the fifth-highest average attendance in the history of English football. Before Manchester City, Chelsea held the English record for most points in a league season (95), the fewest goals conceded in a season (15), and most Football League wins in a season (29). Chelsea Football Club is among the most successful clubs in England, having won over thirty competitive honours, including six league titles. Manchester City won 30 of the 38 games of the 2019/20 season.
Liverpool can also look forward to their first domestic cup final since 2016 when they play Chelsea in the League Cup final on Sunday. On Sunday, Liverpool will be against the champions of Europe and now recently crowned as Champions of the World. Chelsea won their first FIFA Club World Cup on 12th Feb when they defeated Palmeiras in the finals.
Before Sunday’s Finals, Chelsea faced Crystal Palace in the Premier League and Lille in the Champions League. Chelsea found the net in the ending moments of the game (89th min) via Hakim Ziyech. It was a good ending for Chelsea as they ended on the winning side after making many attempts to score in the earlier part of the game. Chelsea won 1-0. In the Champions League Round of 16 Match first leg against Lille, they controlled the ball and dominated mid-field. Chelsea’s youngsters netted once in each half to win the game 2-0. Kai Havertz scored in the 8th min, and Christian Pulisic scored in the 63rd min.
Against Liverpool, Chelsea looks very confident in adding yet another silverware to their successful trophy cabinet. We all were very entertained the last time we saw these two teams go head to head. The First Half of the game consisted of 4 goals, two from each side. Liverpool started first through Sadio Mane in the 9th min, followed by Mohamed Salah’s goal in the 26th min. Seeing the team 2-0 down, the Bridge started to roar and showed their support to the home team. This helped Chelsea in the attack; nearing the Half time, Chelsea was awarded a corner which was partly cleared before Mateo Kovacic blasted a volley in the top corner. In the added time, Kante assisted Christian Pulisic, which equalled the score-line right before halftime. The Second half of the game was a battle of patience and a strong mentality. The game ended 2-2 and gave Manchester City a lead in the Title Race.
Chelsea defeated Tottenham in the Semi-Finals of the EFL Cup, and Liverpool came across Arsenal. The Stage is set for the first silverware of the English season; who do you think will end up as the EFL Champion?. Will it be Red or Blue?.
