Chelsea: Many key players are missing from the Blues, as Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Christian Pulisic, and Hakim Ziyech miss the match. But on the other hand, Timo Werner is at his best after some doubts and the attack is expected. Now, the lack of these key players is a huge blow to the Blues, but they still have the potential to score, especially if the Liverpool defense is struggling as it was in the first round.
Liverpool: The Reds were lucky to beat Leeds in the first game, 4-3. The defense was weak, they took advantage of two penalties and had a hard time defending the balls past the top. With Werner's pace, you can bet the Blues will try something similar. Let's see if the final result can be improved from week to week.
The Reds advanced early and continued to hold despite Chelsea being close to a tie. Choose: Liverpool 2 and Chelsea 1
