Chelsea vs Liverpool: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time, team news and prediction
Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways against Liverpool following their loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.
They were beaten 2-0 at home by Aston Villa, leaving them in 11th place in the Premier League, and with their Champions League qualification hopes in tatters.
Goals from from Ollie Watkins and John McGinn meant the Blues endured a miserable return to club football following a run of four unbeaten games before the international break.
It proved to be Potter’s final game in charge after Chelsea opted to axe the 47-year-old and put Bruno Saltor in charge on an interim basis while a permanent successor is found.
