As Chelsea looks to turn round the stuttering defence of their Barclays Premier League title this season, the visit of Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime appears more welcoming than it looks.
Chelsea will be facing a Liverpool side who have struggled against them in the past six league meetings, the Blues winning three and drawing the others. Furthermore, Liverpool have not enjoyed recent trips to London, going winless on their past five visits to the capital
Since coming in, Klopp has started every game with a narrow 4-3-3/4-3-2-1, with the focus typically on pressing the opponent high up the pitch and creating chances using quick transitions. As many reports have screamed, Liverpool are already running a huge amount more and sprinting like maniacs to make tackles in seemingly unimportant areas of the pitch.
José Mourinho will have to keep a keen eye on what Klopp does during the game – the German has changed formation in the middle of every match so far, looking to tweak his original plan to exploit a change in game-state or a weakness he’s noticed in the opposition defence.
