Liverpool VS Chelsea LIVE Football Score 21/01/2023

Chelsea are the visitors to Anfield on Saturday as Liverpool look to build on Tuesday’s promising performance in the FA Cup and avoid re-writing a 70-year-old record. After Liverpool’s second string produced an improved performance on Tuesday, beating Wolves to reach the FA Cup fourth round, the Reds return to action at Anfield with Chelsea coming to town. Having seen Liverpool consistently fail to perform, there will be an expectation that some of Liverpool’s youngsters are involved against the west London side. Here are 10 things you need to know ahead of Liverpool vs. Chelsea or in Premier League table terms, 9th vs. 10th. On Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp made eight changes to the side that lost at Brighton and fans will be hoping some of the players that came in stay in the team. After a fantastic showing in holding midfield, Stefan Bajcetic will consider himself unlucky if he doesn’t start on Saturday.

The manager hinted at the possibility, saying, “it doesn’t look like we have to be careful” with the deployment of the 18-year-old. Harvey Elliott who got the only goal at Molineux, also staked a claim to start. He was close for Wolves but Klopp has confirmed that Darwin Nunez is available to play against Chelsea, giving a brief, but emphatic, “yes” over his return. With Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino still all out injured, the Uruguayan is likely to come straight back into the team. Cody Gakpo played centrally against Brighton but didn’t offer the same threat in behind as Nunez does, and the Dutch international is better known for his work off the left wing. Predicted Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Gomez, Robertson; Fabinho, Keita, Thiago; Salah, Gakpo, Nunez

Chelsea‘s big spending looks set to continue long after the Roman Abramovich era. Joao Felix and Mykhailo MudrykAcross 23 seasons, he’s managed three clubs and has gone down a legend at both Mainz and Borussia Dortmund. He took the latter back to the top of European football, reaching the Champions League final and winning three major honours. At Liverpool, he boasts the best win percentage (62%) of any manager in the club’s history and has won every trophy on offer except the Europa League. We hope there are another 1,000 games, but just with the Reds of course! re two big names to have signed for the Blues this month, with the latter costing over £88 million including add-ons, taking their monthly spend to £190 million…so far.

Mudryk has been training this week and could start on Saturday after Potter said there was “a chance” he could make his debut.Felix, however, won’t be available – the loanee from Atletico Madrid was sent off on his debut for a studs-up tackle on Fulham‘s Kenny Tete. Chelsea will also be without Edouard Mendy, ex-Red Raheem Sterling, Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Armando Broja and Christian Pulisic. Possible Chelsea XI: Kepa; Chalobah, Badiashile, Silva, Hall; Kovacic, Jorginho, Gallagher; Ziyech, Aubameyang, Mount Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League fixture away at Liverpool, Graham Potter revealed Mykhailo Mudryk’s chances of making his Chelsea debut at Anfield and provided an update on the recovery of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Reece James and Ben Chilwell from injury.

With the January transfer window in full swing and Chelsea active in the market this month, before looking ahead to the match at Liverpool, Graham Potter was asked by the media whether there was any news on Noni Madueke, who has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge from PSV Eindhoven. ‘I know there’s a lot of noise around there, but at the moment there’s nothing to announce,’ said Potter. ‘The club hasn’t announced anything and I’m not in a position to speak any more until he’s a Chelsea player. Until then there’s nothing else to say. I don’t like to speak about players who aren’t Chelsea players.’ He’s settled in really good. He’s a young player, an exciting player, fantastic speed one-v-one, can attack the back line. Now we’ve just got to help him adapt to the Premier League, adapt to us.

‘He’s obviously come from a mid-season break so hasn’t played so much football recently, but has been training well, so we’ll assess him and see how much he can play at the weekend. ‘There’s a chance he could make his debut. It’s how much he can do. I think 90 minutes no, but there’s probably a role for him at some stage in the game. You’ve just got to help him understand and help everyone understand that he’s coming from a different country, a different league, so he has to adapt. He’s a young player who’s got a lot of potential, a lot of upside, but at the same time he’s had some really good experiences already. So he’s an exciting player.’ Ruben was on the bench in the last match to be on the bench, essentially,’ explained our head coach. ‘He’s a lot closer now so he can play more minutes.

‘The boys are progressing well, Reece has joined team training but won’t be involved at the weekend, the same as Ben. Everybody else is pretty much where we were.’ Joao Felix is unavailable as he serves the second match of his three-game suspension following a red card at Fulham, with his potential return being at West Ham on 11 February. There are no suspensions for Liverpool. As the deadline at the halfway mark of the season has passed, no Chelsea player can now be suspended for reaching five yellow cards. Players who accumulate 10 yellow cards in Premier League matches up to and including our 32nd fixture will serve a two-match suspension in the competition.
