The English Premier League has an enticing Tuesday night fixture as wounded sides Chelsea and Liverpool go at it at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are coming off a demoralizing 2-0 home defeat to Aston Villa, leaving them in 11th place with 38 points.

The loss was the final straw for Graham Potter as he departed the club hours later after seven months in charge of the Blues.

Bruno Saltor will temporarily take charge while the desperate search for a respectable successor gets underway.

Liverpool on the other hand suffered a thumping 4-1 demolition at the hands of Manchester City and are in 8th place with 42 points.

The reverse fixture at Anfield in January ended in a barren draw but both sides are desperate to get a morale-boosting win here.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four away games against Chelsea in the EPL and have never secured a streak of five such matches.

The last five matches played between these two teams have ended in draws – Liverpool have never played six consecutive draws against a single opponent in the top flight.

Will this game end in yet another draw or can either side get the upper hand and record a victory on the night?
