This weekend presents Liverpool’s first opportunity to claim an away win against one of the Premier League’s top six clubs. The Reds travel to Chelsea, with both teams looking to rebound from midweek defeats in the Champions League.

Liverpool’s record away to the top six has left much to be desired in recent years. Last season’s 2-1 win at Tottenham was the club’s first away win since we beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in 2016.

During that time Manchester City have picked up seven wins on the road to the league’s best and two Premier League titles in the process.

Liverpool need to replicate this away form against the best teams to become Premier League champions.

Jurgen Klopp spoke about the issue at his pre-match press conference, he said. “It is not good news obviously, but I don’t feel it.

 

“We have to give it a try and a lot of people said the longer things like this happen the more likely we are to change it.”

Liverpool’s trip to Stamford Bridge offers the perfect chance to change perceptions about our ability on the road against our rivals.

Beating Chelsea in their own back yard would represent another early season sign that Liverpool are capable of becoming Premier League champions this season.
