Liverpool vs Chelsea – Prediction, team news & time for EPL match



Liverpool go play Chelsea for Anfield for di first game on Saturday for Premier League.

Di game go kick off by 1:30pm West African Time.

Dis na wetin you need to know about di ogbonge game for Anfield.


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp go give update on di fitness of Darwin Nunez, wey get thigh injury, during in Friday press conference.

Long-term absentees Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk all still no dey fit.

Chelsea fit give Mykhailo Mudryk in debut but Joao Felix dey serve im second of im three-match ban.

Dia players Reece James and Ben Chilwell don return to training dis week but dem dey unlikely to play.


How possible e dey for you to call dis game? Both sides dey really inconsistent dis season and it is impossible to know what they will do next.

I no dey convinced by Liverpool for a while now, because of their lack of energy and legs for midfield, and dia defeat for Brighton last weekend no even be big surprise.

I know say di Reds beat Wolves for FA Cup but I neva see anything wey go make me think say dem go bounce back and win their first league match of 2023.

Na similar story wit Chelsea because we no know which Blues team go turn up for Anfield.

Dem get an important win over Crystal Palace last time out but dem need some big saves from Kepa Arrizabalaga to help dem.

A wibn

go boost confidence for both teams but e hard to make a case for either of them to take three points.

Prediction: 1-1
