Chelsea face Liverpool in the opening game of their 2023/24 Premier League season at Stamford Bridge.

After an unbeaten pre-season in the United States, Mauricio Pochettino will manage Chelsea for the first time in the league when Liverpool travel to west London.

It was a season to forget for Chelsea last time out and Pochettino is keen to quickly put that behind them to take the Blues back to where he believes they deservedly belong.

“We are Chelsea. The history of the club is to win. Even in transition, the fans know, we cannot give the message that we are in transition. We need to win. We need to be ready to win. We are ready to win against Liverpool.

“The mentality for the whole club is to compete to be strong and believe in us and try to win. I will not accept different ways to think. No excuses for us.”
