  • Who - Chelsea vs Liverpool 
  • Competition - 2023/24 Premier League
  • Where - Stamford Bridge, London, England 
  • When - Sunday, 13th August, 2023
  • Time - 4.30 pm BST

What a fixture for Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea to start the season with. After the disastrous 2022/23 campaign, the Blues will be looking to get the new season off to a winning start. So seeing the fixture computer rewarding them with a match against Liverpool wouldn't have been what the Blues would have been hoping for. 

That said, it's a great opportunity for Mauricio Pochettino to see how his team matches up against one of the Premier League's best.

Liverpool themselves are going through a period of transition. Captain Jordan Henderson has left the club. And club stalwarts James Milner and Roberto Firmino have also departed Anfield. 

With the departure of Firmino, Liverpool have now lost two of their strike force that has brought them much of their recent success. Only Mo Salah now remains of the much feared Mane, Firmino and Salah trio.

The likes of Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo will be expected to kick on this season. How they perform will go some way to determining how well Liverpool do.
