Watch Live: Chelsea vs. Liverpool (Lineups, Live Stream)
Chelsea welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Saturday (Watch live, 8:45 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra) with the Blues in desperate need of a big win to kick start their season.
Jose Mourinho continues to be under pressure with five defeats in 10 games so far from the reigning Premier League champs as they were also dumped out of the Capital One Cup to Stoke City in midweek. Everything that could go wrong has been going wrong for Mourinho.
Jurgen Klopp has had a much less eventful few weeks to start off his reign as Liverpool boss with three draws and a win across PL, Europa League and League Cup action. Can Klopp’s side get one over Mourinho to pick up a first PL win for the German and pile more pressure on the Blues?
In team news Chelsea leave out Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa is fit to start, while Liverpool start Roberto Firmino up front as Christian Benteke is only fit enough for the bench.
