Chelsea are looking to claim consecutive wins for the first time this year when they face Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.

Graham Potter’s men recorded their first win in five games in all competitions on Sunday when they narrowly beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League to end a run of three defeats in a row.

Kai Havertz’s header in the second half clinched Chelsea their first win of 2023 to boost the morale in the squad after a draw and three losses to begin the year.
