This season's two biggest underperformers go head-to-head as they kick off the Premier League weekend at Anfield. Despite their miserable campaigns so far, neither team will have given up hope of finishing in the top four yet – although victory for Liverpool will put take them three points clear of Chelsea having played a game less. The sides met four times last season, with all four games finishing level after 90 minutes – but given that Liverpool won the resulting penalty shootouts in both the League Cup and FA Cup finals, Chelsea are bound to have revenge on their minds as they travel to Merseyside.
VPN guideIf you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo! ) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit. A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result. There are plenty of good-value options out there.
Virgil van Dijk, Arthur, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino are definitely still sidelined for this one, while there are doubts over the fitness of Kostas Tsimikas and Harvey Elliott.

On top of that, new loan signing Joao Felix serves the final game of his three-match ban after being sent off on his debut against Fulham. FormLiverpool and Chelsea's 2022/23 fortunes can be summed up by the fact that this clash is technically a mid-table battle: the Reds sit ninth after 18 games, the Blues 10th after 19.
