Mohamed Salah to score first.

The forward has already netted against Chelsea earlier this season as he scored in the 1-1 back in August.

Salah is currently on 15 league goals in 19 appearances and he will be hopeful of adding to his tally before heading off to the African Cup of Nations.

He is 4/1 with Bet365 to score the first goal on Sunday.

Chelsea vs Liverpool – recent form and head to head statistics


Chelsea vs Liverpool: Match preview

Thomas Tuchel will now be coming under a slight bit of pressure from Chelsea with his side starting to falter over recent weeks.

The Blues have taken just nine points from their last six matches, dropping points against some bottom half teams.

The west London club were held to a 1-1 draw with Brighton on Wednesday.

Danny Welbeck netted a 91st-minute equaliser in what was a really poor performance by the Blues.

Chelsea have now draw back to back games at home as they were also held by Everton.

Liverpool lose ground at Leicester

Liverpool suffered a very damming defeat at Leicester last week as they were beaten 1-0.

Mo Salah missed a penalty as the Reds were unable to find a way past the Foxes.

Ademola Lookman netted the only goal of the game at the King Power Stadium.

Klopp’s side are now 12 points off the league leaders Man City, with two games in hand.
