Why Chelsea could be defeated by Liverpool


This weekend produces a very interesting fixture between Liverpool and Chelsea as the result will make a big impact on the league standing.

Liverpool are hoping to win so that they can be able to seal a top spot ahead of Man City while the West London outfit are seeking to have a top-four finish which makes the game a difficult one for both sides.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has therefore predicted that the Reds team may win at the end of the day should the Blues boss Maurizio Sarri end up leaving Belgium international Eden Hazard at the bench.

According to him, the West London outfit will find it to defeat the Merseyside outfit without Eden Hazard and that could be the situation at the end of the day.

He noted that the Italian boss has taken the Europa League clash against Sparta Praha as a more serious competition because of their chances of lifting it and that is why he might reserve the Belgium international for the game.

Paul Merson, therefore, noted that the Reds team will be nervous ahead of the game because they have not won a league title in 29 years and there is an urgency to break the deadlock.
