Liverpool and Chelsea lock horns in the showpiece fixture of the Premier League TV schedule this weekend.
The Reds look more like their title-winning selves from 2020 now that Virgil van Dijk is back in the fold and Jurgen Klopp will be keen for his side to rebuild momentum to set the tone in 2021/22.
Diogo Jota has scored in consecutive games as he continues to wow the crowds as a Liverpool player and disrupt the natural order of Roberto Firmino slotting between Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
Chelsea also look like rising title contenders in the opening weeks of the season. Romelu Lukaku scored on his second debut for the club and will be desperate to fuel the charge this term.
The Blues know that games against teams around them will be crucial if they are to mount a serious bid for the Premier League trophy.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Chelsea
Liverpool and Chelsea are among just four teams to win both of their Premier League outings so far in 2021/22 – one or both of those 100 per cent records will fall.
Each team has also scored five apiece and not conceded a goal yet, so what will give way during this one?
It’s an unpredictable affair that could easily swing either way, but we can see in-form Jota, Salah and Lukaku scything their way through most defences in world football right now. This could be an early-season cracker.
