Chelsea will be away at Anfield as Liverpool host the Blues in the Carabao Cup third round match on Wednesday.
This game comes up between two sides who are rich in form and are yet to lose a game in all competitions this season.
The two sides will meet twice in a space of four days, and while both managers will take this game seriously, they will be tempted to rest players with one eye on Saturday’s clash at Stamford Bridge.
Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has named the clash a “phoney war”, and he thinks Liverpool will carry the day.
“Liverpool have only won two of their last 14 games with Chelsea in all competitions and those successes both came at Stamford Bridge,” Owen told BetVictor.
“This game might be considered a ‘phoney war’ ahead of their Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
“Chelsea lost their 100 per cent record at the London Stadium on Sunday and I feel the Reds will travel to the capital at the weekend having maintained their own perfect start to the season.”
