Liverpool will play at home against Chelsea in the third round of the English Championship. The match will take place on August 28.
Liverpool, despite certain fears, pleased in the first matches of the season. Starting rounds reminded of the best periods of the team under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp .
In the first match of the new championship, the Lersisides won a landslide victory over Norwich – 3: 0. Diogo Jota , Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah scored on a goal .
After that there was a victory over Burnley – 2: 0. One of the goals was scored by Jota , who seems to be becoming as indispensable for the team as Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
The results are important in the first place, this is understandable, but even more pleased with the game of Liverpool – the most reliable in defense and effective in attack.
In the meantime, Chelsea have never given any reason for criticism either. Thomas Tuchel’s team looks no less impressive than Liverpool.
In the first round, the London club defeated Crystal Palace – 3: 0. A typical class victory that does not require any additional comments.
And last Sunday , Chelsea confidently dealt with Arsenal – 2: 0. The first goal of this game was scored by Romelu Lukaku , for whom the club paid almost 100 million pounds.
In addition, Chelsea beat Villarreal earlier this month for the UEFA Super Cup. It was so far the most difficult game for Tuchel’s team, the Spaniards lost only on the basis of a penalty shootout.
