LIVERPOOL are not used to losing games.
Just three defeats for Jurgen Klopp’s side in 2019 and two of them were back in January within the space of four days.
The other was that Champions League semi-final first leg reverse against Barcelona.
Sunday’s trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea should provide a tough test for Liverpool.
Yes, Frank Lampard’s side go into the game off the back of the poor defeat at home to Valencia, however, judging by last season’s league games after a European assignment, Liverpool are favourites to win.
LIVERPOOL’S TRAVEL SLICKNESS
Liverpool were undefeated in all 12 games (10 wins and two draws) after returning to domestic action last term and are Even money to do the business again on Sunday.
The emphatic win at Wolves was a huge step forward for Chelsea last week.
But the home loss to the Spanish side again provided more questions than answers after dropped points at the Bridge against Sheffield United and Leicester City.
The loss of Mason Mount is a big blow, how many Chelsea fans would have thought that in July?
Tammy Abraham’s Molineux hat-trick proved he is full of confidence, but who else will step up to score goals.
SENIORS NEED TO STEP UP
Abraham (five), Mount (three) and Fikayo Tomori, all on loan in the Championship last term are the only players to score, the senior players need to step up if Chelsea have any chance of beating the visitors on Sunday and win their first home game this term.
Chelsea are 13/5 to beat the Premier League leaders who have won their last seven away league games.
Lampard’s side have it all to do against the Reds who are five points clear already, no one in the Premier League era has been that far ahead after five games.
