Chelsea vs Liverpool: Key battles that could decide the fixtureLast updated on Sep 28, 2018, 10:30 pm
Saturday will witness the most anticipated match of this edition of the Premier League.
Two undefeated teams, Liverpool and Chelsea will be up against each other in their first league encounter.
While Chelsea have already drawn a match, Liverpool have won them all.
Here are the key battles which will prove to be decisive during the match.
Jorghino vs Milner
Jorghino vs Milner: Battle for the Stamford mid-field
Jorghino has already got people talking in his first EPL season.
He is doing brilliant work in ensuring Chelsea's mid-field remains difficult for others to penetrate.
He has completed more passes than any other Premier League player.
Jorghino's perfect battle will be against Milner.
Milner has shown extreme determination and stamina in constantly pressing the ball and trying to break the opponent's possession.
Hazard vs Trent
Eden Hazard vs Trent Alexander-Arnold: Can Alexander-Arnold stop Hazard?
Eden Hazard has been a sensation this term, scoring amazing goals and displaying unparalleled footwork.
On the other hand, 19-year-old Alexander-Arnold has impressed under Klopp, keeping Liverpool's defensive frailties in check.
If Hazard can get past Alexander-Arnold, the Reds might find themselves in trouble.
Klopp will have to strengthen his defenses in order to win this encounter.
Alonso vs Salah
Marcus Alonso vs Mohamed Salah: Who will be more effective?
Mohamed Salah has not yet been that explosive this season like he was in the last term.
The Egyptian King might rise up to the occasion tomorrow.
Alonso, who has been praised as a fullback, is yet to develop his defensive skills.
If Alonso keeps charging forward, he might end up opening spaces for Salah to create scoring chances.
Klopp vs Sarri
Klopp vs Sarri: The battle of the brains
Klopp had recently praised his Chelsea counterpart on how he has transformed Chelsea into a force to be reckoned with.
Both managers are amazing tacticians, and it would be interesting to see who trumps the other tomorrow.
Sarri has already beaten Liverpool in the League Cup, but EPL will be a different ball-game altogether, and the one who wins, will get the bragging rights.
