There is a lot of hate between the two sets of supporters. This weekend marks the latest instalment of the classic fixture that is Chelsea v Liverpool. This proves to be a cracker as each side looks to bounce back from disappointing midweek displays. We look at 3 things that will definitely happen during Chelsea v Liverpool this weekend.
Ross Barkley will get a lot of stick
The Scouser in the Blues side is in for a ribbing from the travelling Anfield faithful. He has two strikes against his name having played for Everton and now Chelsea. With the England international not enjoying the best of starts to the season in the Premier League and missed a penalty midweek, he could find Sunday a very tricky game to recover his form in. If the midfielder starts as expected and fails to step up to the plate then we can expect the Kopites to let him know how poorly he’s playing.
Fabinho will be key for the Reds
Liverpool’s long legged Brazilian midfielder has been receiving heaps of praise from fans and pundits alike in recent weeks. He has become undroppable for key games. Fabinho’s anticipation and eye for a through ball have made him the best holding midfielder in the Premier League. With the hosts potentially missing a key man in Mason Mount, Fabinho could have a big say in the final outcome.
Luis Garcia tributes
The only certainty of the every Liverpool and Chelsea fixture post 2005 is the roar of the Luis Garcia song. The Spanish winger scored the infamous ‘ghost goal’ that sent Liverpool into the Champions League final in Istanbul. Ever since, Kopites have taunted Chelsea fans with his sangria serenade.
