When the season started I had Chelsea tipped to swoop up the title. With all the new managers who came in over the summer, it looked like it would be easy for Jose Mourinho to hit the ground running and continue where he had left off. Many bookies did agree with this assessment and even up until now they still have Chelsea as one of the favourites to win the title, you can read about different sports gambling sites here. Not to take anything away from Chelsea, they have had a pretty good season so far, besides being in the hunt for the title they are in the Champions League Semi-Final as well.
So we go again on Sunday as we host those who I affectionately like to call “The Historically Challenged Ones”. Ironically though as the years have rolled by this clash has developed a sense of history which sometimes does seem more like ‘Groundhog Day’. Of course I am referring to Jose Mourinho’s mind games and claiming that he would field a ‘weaken’ side against us, whatever Jose.
I believe that Rodgers will only make one change from last Sunday’s starting lineup. Brendan will go with experience and put in Agger over Sakho. Daniel Sturridge would likely start on the bench, he will replace Victor Moses who is ineligible for this game. Jordan Henderson is serving his second game in his suspension.
Predicted Starting XI : Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez
Predicted Subs : Jones, Toure, Sakho, Cissokho, Sturridge, Alberto, Aspas
