Chelsea vs Liverpool takes place on Sunday in the English Premier League in the weekend's top match from England. Chelsea will be looking to keep the pressure on Manchester United at the top of the table and will be looking for all three points in this big clash. The game is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link below.
Chelsea should have captain John Terry back after completing his 4 match domestic ban. However, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard will both miss the match.
For Liverpool Glen Johnson is back from a hamstring injury and will be facing his former employers. The Reds will be recalling a number of players, including Steven Gerrard, who were rested for their midweek Europa League game in Russia.
Chelsea are hot favorites for this game, with Liverpool struggling in the bottom half of the table this season. So far Liverpool have managed just 11 points from 10 games are their Champions League qualification hopes already look dead in the water. Their poor form means they lay in 13th position desperate for points.
However, despite all indicators pointing to a Chelsea win, Reds fans will enjoy pointing out that Liverpool have in fact secured Premier League doubles over Chelsea in three of the past four season, and have also only lost two of their last 11 games against the Blues. Liverpool have a knack of beating Chelsea. Whether that history can inspire them to a win today or not remains to be seen.
Last season the teams met four times, with Liverpool winning both league games, as well as beating Chelsea in the League Cup quarter finals. However, Chelsea beat Liverpool in the FA Cup Final at the end of the season.
