‘9th place’ Liverpool vs ’10th place’ Chelsea, a ‘little duel’ on New Year’s Day between two unfamiliar teams

It might be difficult to describe the confrontation between two unfamiliar teams as Big Bang.

Liverpool and Chelsea, who are in opposite ranks from last season, are about to face off for the first time of the season. Liverpool, who finished 2nd in the 2021-2022 Premier League, is currently 9th, and Chelsea, who was 3rd, is located in 10th. With both teams recording 28 points, attention is focusing on which club will prepare a stepping stone to enter the top ranks with a victory in the rivalry.

The two teams met in the finals of both the League Cup and FA Cup last season, and after a penalty shoot-out, Liverpool took two trophies. In addition, there is a bar that has recorded a draw in both league matches. 

Liverpool, who played a replay of the FA Cup 3rd round with Wolverhampton midweek, must overcome their relative physical weakness. The defense, 카지노 including Alisson Becker, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, took a break.

However, as Cody Hakpo and Mohamed Salah in the attacking line and Tiago Alcantara and Fabinho, the main players in the midfield, are in the game, the condition of the key players is important. Rested Jordan Henderson needs to have a lot of activity in midfield, and Darwin Núñez, who is about to return from injury, needs to revitalize the offense.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, who is struggling with the evil spirit of injury, succeeded in escaping from losing streak by defeating C. Palace. In addition to João Felix, who was sent off in his debut match and punished, Chelsea are missing key players such as Rhys James, N’Golo Kante and Ben Chilwell due to injuries. It was a difficult situation, but Thiago Silva and ‘freshman’ Benoit Badiacil’s solid defense and Kai Havertz’s winning goal succeeded in turning the atmosphere around.

In this game, attention is also paid to whether Mikhailo Mudrik, the ‘Ukrainian Divine’, will be active. Will Mudriq, who has not played a real game since November, overcome the feeling of being lost and lead the team to victory by making his debut?

The 2022-2023 Premier League round 21 match between Liverpool and Chelsea, desperate for a rebound in the second half, kicks off at 9:30 pm on Saturday the 21st, and will be broadcast live exclusively on SPOTV ON and SPOTV NOW.
