The postponed Gameweek 8 match between Liverpool and Chelsea will not feature any trees being pulled into the head-to-head battle at Stamford Bridge.
Following their loss to Aston Villa on Saturday, the Blues have decided to end their short marriage with Graham Potter.
After losing to Villa and Everton at home, Chelsea has picked up just one point from its last two Premier League matches. It has not won in nine matches against different opponents.
The loss to the Lions has dropped the Blues to the bottom half of the table. With the appointment of a new manager yet to be decided, they are focusing on facing Liverpool on Tuesday.
Liverpool lost to Manchester City in the previous round, and the team will not be feeling any better when it takes on the Blues.
It was the third successive loss for Jurgen Klopp’s men. They gave a dreadful defensive display.
Since the start of the season, Liverpool has struggled when it comes to performing on the road. The team has lost 8 of 14 away games in the Premier League.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Head to head :

- The last five meetings between Liverpool and Chelsea have ended in a stalemate.
- In the 94 previous meetings between these two clubs, Liverpool have only been able to beat Chelsea 27 times.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Prediction :
It’s hard to predict how this will play out, as either Chelsea will bounce back from Potter’s departure or they will continue to struggle with their squad’s fundamental issues.
After suffering another defeat, Liverpool can bounce back with an improved performance against a rival. They may also continue to be affected by their own fundamental issues.
