How to watch Chelsea vs Liverpool live and online: Stream and channel details

The first Premier League top six clash of the season will be shown live on TV tonight, as Klopp’s title winners head to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea. 

This is a game you won’t want to miss, with the previous contest between the two sides proving to be an eight goal thriller. Frank Lampard will no doubt be itching for revenge, with a fierce rivalry starting to develop between the two managers. 

Chelsea vs Liverpool kick-off time

The match will kick off at 4.30pm BST today. The pre-match build up will begin at 4pm BST, just in case you want to hear the pundits offer their thoughts and predictions on the fixture.

Chelsea vs Liverpool match preview

Chelsea have had a busy summer in the transfer market, spending over £200 million on a number of high-profile signings. Unfortunately, Frank Lampard has confirmed a slew of match fitness and injury concerns, which means that the only new signings likely to start against Liverpool will be Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. 

But after scoring three goals against Brighton last Monday, Chelsea will be heading into their Home encounter against Liverpool in high spirits.

Liverpool seemingly have no fresh injury concerns, although it will be too early for new signing Thiago Alcântara to be involved. 

Mohamed Salah will be the player to watch, after scoring a hatrick against Leeds last weekend. However, after conceding three goals in the same match after calamitous mistakes from Van Dijk and Gomez, Liverpool’s defence is looking very vulnerable at the moment. 

If you’re planning on streaming the match online, then you should consider using a VPN to ensure your private data and online activity remains in safe hands. 

A VPN will allow you to connect to the internet with a different IP address somewhere else in the world, making it far more difficult for hackers and snoopers to keep track of you.
