Mrs Fella’s view of the Salah penalty

Originally tweeted by amadí (@amadoit__) on August 28, 2021.

Here’s that Reece James red card decision. I see his hand move but I don’t think he hits the ball with his hand. the intent seems there though.

I think Anthony Taylor sees the arm movement and deems it deliberate. to be fair, he swings his arm and misses it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

actually, on second thought. Taylor never watched the entire play. he looked at a fucking freeze frame. shambles.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction And Odds: Preview

Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp screamed “Avengers Assemble” and Virgil Van Dijk alongside 50,000 fans returned to Anfield this season. The Reds have certainly forgotten the woos of the previous season and have seemingly rejuvenated their side in front of their fans.

Jurgen Klopp refuses to inflict anything different in the team than the 2019-20 title-winning season. The team is almost the same and so is their methodology of playing. The return of Virgil “Big Bird” Van Dijk boosted their confidence which was followed by two consecutive clean sheets in the first two Premier League games of the season.

Liverpool won 0-3 and 2-0 against Norwich and Burnley, respectively. Klopp replaced Diago Jota for Roberto Firmino in the playing XI of both the game. However, it is not going to be easy for the Reds to face the mighty Blues of London in the upcoming week.

Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel was handed a giant when he took over from Frank Lampard in the middle of the last season. Soon enough, the German created a monster out of the giant. The same Chelsea which was struggling under Lampard, later went on to win the Champions League with Tuchel.

The Champions of Europe are now eyeing a Premier League trophy. Roman Abramovich spent 100M to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the Bridge. The former Man United striker scored on his Chelsea return during their London derby against Arsenal.

Chelsea won 0-1 in their last visit to Anfield. However, this time it will be in front of the Merseyside fans. Thomas Tuchel certainly has a point to prove and what better occasion to do it at fully-packed Anfield.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction and Odds: Offence and Defence

Attack:

The attacking trio of Salah, Mane and Jota has been fruitful for Liverpool in the first two games of the Premier League 2021-22 season. The trio is expected to become ruthless as the season progresses.

Lukaku made a strong statement on his return debut for Chelsea. His pairing with Havertz and Mount will just make it more difficult for the Premier League defenders to cope up this season.

Midfield:

Henderson and Keita are handling the midfield for Liverpool with the proper mixture of balance and attack. Milner and Elliott have also been used by Klopp in the midfield area this season.

Kovacic and Jorginho are orchestrating Chelsea’s game from the midfield. The addition of Kante, who is currently out of the squad due to injury, will help Chelsea to concentrate more on the attack.

Defence:

Both Liverpool and Chelsea have kept two clean sheets in their first two Premier League games. Virgil Van Dijk and Matip are back to their best form. While Rudiger, Christensen and Azpilicueta are forming a deadly trio in the defence of 3 for Chelsea.

Fullbacks have played a crucial role for both the teams so far in the season. Alonso and James have scored a goal each in the first two games for Chelsea. While Tsimikas and Arnold handed an assist each in the second game.
