Liverpool – Chelsea headlines This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online

At this time last season, Liverpool had already effectively clinched the Premier League title.

Now, with 12 games left in the 2021 campaign, there are real questions about whether Liverpool will manage to finish in the top 4.

After not so subtly thrashing the FA’s rapid scheduling of English competitions in the COVID-19 compromised season, LFC manager Jurgen Klopp’s worst fears came true when he watched his three best central defenders go down with injuries which contributed to staining the season with embarrassing losses.

On Thursday, Liverpool will face new-look Chelsea, which remains unbeaten since the hiring of Thomas Tuchel. The Blues settled for a respectable scoreless draw against Manchester United on Sunday, but more importantly, bested La Liga-leading Atletico Madrid last Tuesday in Champions League play.

If Brighton, Burnley, and Southampton can earn wins over the defending champions in recent weeks, Chelsea will certainly be liking its odds, but as the season heads to a wrap, Thursday’s contest has a little extra pressure.

At the moment, Liverpool and Chelsea are fifth and sixth in the Premier League standings. Both running out of six-pointer opportunities.

Things have not been ideal for the Reds lately, but the fact there is still enough gusto to go around when the three-headed monster of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah take the field. With their backs against the wall in attempting to remain elite, a signature performance is needed. Is anyone willing to put on the cape?

Comments

  1. Looking forward to the Chelsea vs Liverpool match Thursday! Curious to see how Chelsea defends, Tuchel’s lineup, formation, and if they can score from the run of play? Tuchel is becoming more and more suspect with his personal and strategy.
    Liverpool just playing good should be enough to win. However, a healthy good Liverpool beats just about anyone. Is current rag tag Liverpool’s CB’s and midfield good enough?
