Chelsea will be away to Liverpool at the Anfield Stadium on Saturday, and it’s the biggest game of the weekend.

Chelsea and Liverpool have had a perfect start to the season with two wins from two games, and they have both kept clean sheets in their two opening games.

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has given his prediction for this game, and the former England international has admitted that he’s expecting a tight game.

However, Owen has revealed that based on his bias for Liverpool, he’s backing a 2-1 win for his former club.

“What a match this should be,” Owen told BetVictor. “Let’s start with Liverpool.

“It’s been a perfect start for Klopp’s side, with two wins from two. I’m sure the thing that Jurgen will be most pleased about so far is keeping back-to-back clean sheets.

“Van Dijk has looked like he has never been away and being able to play in front of a packed Anfield crowd makes a massive difference to my old club.

“Chelsea are looking fantastic though. They don’t seem to have any weaknesses so far and the size of their squad makes them a hard team to look beyond.

“I loved what I saw from Lukaku against Arsenal and his movement in particular was outstanding. He bullied the Arsenal defence so I’m curious to see how he gets on here.

“If any defender could deal with him, it would be Van Dijk, what a duel that will be.

“Call me biased but I still like Liverpool’s chances here! With the fans back at Anfield, this will feel like a proper occasion, and I think they can edge it 2-1.”
