Liverpool can become only the second team in Premier League history to win three successive trips to Chelsea, after Blackburn Rovers between 1993/94 and 1995/96.
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has been involved in 12 Premier League goals this season (seven goals, five assists). It’s the most of any English player in the competition, and his joint-best return in a single Premier League campaign (also 12 in 2019/20).
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, who used to play for Chelsea, has been directly involved in 13 goals in his last 13 Premier League matches in London (eight goals, five assists). Meanwhile, no Liverpool player has scored more Premier League goals in the capital than the Egyptian (13, level with Steven Gerrard).
Chelsea haven’t won their opening league match in any of the last five calendar years (D3 L2), since beating Crystal Palace 3-0 in 2016. Only once have they had a longer run of winless such matches in their league history (10 between 1929 and 1938).
