The Reds are up next at the Bridge

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea team need to again play as they did against them in the Super Cup to stand a realistic chance against a dominant Liverpool side as we welcome them to the Bridge on Super Sunday.

In recent years this fixture brought sheer joy to all Chelsea fans as we watch Liverpool “slip up” on several occasions but Liverpool is on a 14-match unbeaten run in the Premier League. And their front three (Mane, Fremino, Salah) look menacing in tandem as they look to surge ahead of the pack. Joint leading scorer until later today Tammy Abraham would relish the chance to go against Van Dijk who slipped up a bit in the Champions League this week. For all the scoring prowess of Liverpool, Chelsea’s younger team looks hungry and menacing. With Rudiger still out it looks like we could start with a back three again allowing Azpi and Alonso to play as wing-backs a system that worked well under Conte. For this to happen we need a fit-again Kante to play alongside Jorginho and with Willian/Pedro and Pulisic/Mount on either side of Abraham.

Liverpool of late has been pressing high which often leads to the opposing team losing the ball and with it counter-attacking the team to score goals at will. Whoever Lampard picks in our three-man defensive unit needs to be quick, assured and sniff out these counter-attacks. An area which we need to quickly improve is our corner defending system. This area of the play has cost us lots of points already. Liverpool possesses the firepower to exploit this area.

Can we muster up a challenge to last year’s runner-up? Can we finally build on last week’s win against Wolves? Can we simply not concede for the first time this season? Time will tell.

Let’s roar our team on to victory on Sunday evening. This has been an exciting week already as Callum Hudson-Odoi signed a five-year deal ending all speculations of him moving away. News from the Bridge is that Abraham and Tomori are next to sign long term contracts.
