Defending UCL champion Liverpool had a shocking night at Napoles while they lose to Napoli by 2-0 on Tuesday night. Although they are yet to lose a point in Premier League in this season. The All Reds have won all of their Premier League games so far.
Surely, Jorgen Klopp’s disciples are frustrated after referee-assisted 2-0 defeat to Napoli on Tuesday knight. But it seems like that defeat will help the Reds to fire up against Chelsea. Because Liverpool has already defeated Chelsea in this season. They beat Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup Final last month.
Liverpool’s main diffence-man Virgil van Dijk said, “Difficult night last night and disappointing result but we must put it behind us and now, It’s about how we react. It’s time to stand up, be positive, and focus on putting in a big performance against Chelsea.”
On the other hand, Chelsea didn’t have a smooth run so far in this Premier League. Currently, the Blues are standing on the 6th position with only 8 points from 5 games. However, they experienced the same feelings at UCL after losing to Valencia by 1-0.
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham indicates that they will lunge on to Liverpool as a wounded animal on Sunday.
He said, “It’s a test of character, We can take our anger out against Liverpool. We’ll look forward to putting things right.”
“We’re fuming we lost today,” Abraham added. “But there are still five [Champions League group stage] games to go. We didn’t play our best football. Valencia came and stopped us playing, so you have to give them credit.”
Whatever, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has a big issue about Mason Mount injury. Chelsea’s new sensation at the mid-field Mason Mount is struggling with his ankle injury that he got from the match against Valencia. But he is hoping to be fit to face Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
