Chelsea play host to Liverpool in our second league game of the season, as the Blues welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

Liverpool won the league convincingly last season and are favourites for this fixture.

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Liverpool, as he has revealed his concerns about Liverpool’s defence, while also hailing the signing of Timo Werner.

“This is clearly the stand-out fixture of Matchday 2 and I can’t wait to watch these fiercely competitive rivals go head-to-head,” said Owen in his prediction for BetVictor.

“Chelsea started their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 win away at the Amex stadium and Frank Lampard will have been pleased with the way that some of his new signings seem to be settling in. Timo Werner was a constant threat to Brighton and looks like he is going to adapt very quickly to the rigours of the Premier League.

“Liverpool beat Leeds United 4-3 in their opening day fixture and while Jurgen Klopp will have been delighted to see his strikers picking up where they left off last season, he will have been concerned with the way Leeds picked their defence apart on way too many occasions.

“If there is one certainty in this match, it’s that there will be goals! I fancy an entertaining, end to end clash between the two sides with honours even at the final whistle. 2-2 for me.”
