A history of Chelsea v Liverpool in pictures

Chelsea host Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds travel to Stamford Bridge top of the table following a 100 per cent start to the season, while Maurizio Sarri’s Blues are just two points behind.

The London club came from behind to win 2-1 at Anfield on Wednesday when the two sides met in the Carabao Cup.

Here, we take a look back at a selection of previous encounters and memorable moments in Press Association pictures.
