The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating their return to Premier League action this weekend when they face Chelsea at Anfield.
Liverpool will be looking to put their midweek performance in Seville behind them this weekend and bounce back with a 4th straight win in the Premier League. In their last three league matches Liverpool have taken the maximum available points and scored 10 goals in the process, but they face a much sterner test against Antonio Conte’s side this weekend who are also in a rich vein of form. The heavyweight clash is certainly the headline fixture of the weekend and both sides will be looking to make a statement of intent with victory on Saturday.
The fixture will give the Premier League’s top-goalscorer Mo Salah an opportunity to line up against his former club for the first time since he officially left Chelsea in July 2016.

Salah will feel as if he has a point to prove after an unsuccessful spell at Stamford Bridge, and Liverpool will be hoping his determination to show Chelsea what they are missing will produce his finest form on the day.
After all, the Egyptian’s performances in matches against the other top-six clubs will be a pivotal factor in determining the outcome of Liverpool’s season.
When Salah is on song, Liverpool’s chances of collecting 3 points are massively increased. He has the ability to tear defences apart with his speed and trickery on the break and his presence in the side give’s Liverpool a real edge in the final-third.
Fixtures against the top-teams are where the season is won and lost, and Salah must step-up to deliver a match-winning performance in this weekends fixture, and within future encounters against top-six clubs to ensure Liverpool cement a place in the top-four this season.
