The marquee clash of the season so far, with both heavyweights carving out two wins and two clean sheets in the opening two weekends.

Liverpool put away Norwich City 3-0 to start with then shut Burnley down 2-0 in their return to Anfield. Diogo Jota put his name on the scoresheet in both games.

Chelsea have enjoyed a virtually identically start – albeit against better opposition – thrashing Crystal Palace 3-0 and overwhelming Arsenal 2-0. Romelu Lukaku scored his first goal back in the blue shirt to open the scoring against the Gunners.

Virgil van Dijk will be tasked with the job of shutting Lukaku down this weekend.

Liverpool have won five of their last six Premier League clashes with Chelsea. Last season they got up 2-0 in an early-season encounter at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea snared a 1-0 victory at Anfield.

Verdict

The head-to-head market is super-tight and I’m finding it hard to split the title contenders. Buckle up for this blockbuster.
