It truly has been a bumper week of viewing this week with Sunderland versus Everton on Monday, the Champions League and Europa League in between and now a huge Chelsea versus Liverpool clash this evening.
Given the way in which Chelsea and Liverpool performed last time out, we’re sure to be in for a cracker with the Blues having done everything but grab all three points at Swansea City in a 2-2 draw while Liverpool smashed champions Leicester City 4-1.
This fixture was particularly special for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp last term who earned his first ever Premier League victory courtesy of a 1-3 victory at Stamford Bridge last October.
But with the Blues having endured a forgettable campaign last term, Antonio Conte has got Chelsea looking like the real deal again with Diego Costa in sensational goalscoring form and Eden Hazard looking like his old self once again.
With no European football to contend with this season, this makes Chelsea an extremely likely candidate to challenge the Manchester clubs in the Premier League title race and three points against Liverpool will only heighten the expectation.
So without further ado, This Is Futbol attempt to second guess Antonio Conte while devising what we believe will be his starting eleven against Liverpool this evening.
