Jack Frankham previews Liverpool’s visit to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea in the Premier League.
Both Chelsea and Liverpool have started well in a new era with their top notch managers. The fans from either side understand what Conte and Klopp are trying to instill into their respective team’s performances.
The displays from both sides have been promising with both bosses, mixing youth and experienced players together. Chelsea has made a neat signing in Kante and for the price that they bought him for, it’s a very good deal.
You could see that Leicester was missing that engine in the middle of the park at Anfield. With Hazard and Costa also back to their bests under Conte, it seems very promising to see from a Chelsea perspective.
Who to look out for?
Eden Hazard is always a threat down the flanks when he’s in the mood. Conte seems to have a system that suits him when attacking the opposition. He’s always been a danger man for Chelsea and his goal at Anfield last season speaks for itself.
The turn and the movement was lovely to see, it’s hard not to like what he has done whilst being in the Premier League. I look forward to seeing if Conte builds a side around him due to his majestic and unquestionable quality, definitely a star man for Chelsea this season.
Since joining Liverpool, Sadio Mané has settled in beautifully on Merseyside. The lack of speed going forward was a problem during last season and his impact for Liverpool has been immense and quite surprising from my perspective.
I always thought he was a limited but outstanding winger which we desperately need. He is integral to how we play and I see him as a building point. His movement is so key to the way we press forward and I’m excited to see what more he can offer throughout the season.
Score prediction: 1-3 to the Reds
