Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Dayne Whittle and guests to look back at the 1-1 draw against Brighton and ahead to Sunday’s match against Liverpool.

Adam Newson from Football.London joins us in part one to look back at the Brighton game. Chelsea are clearly running on empty but does that excuse the performance? With Reece James and Andreas Christensen going off Chelsea now have even more key injuries. And while Lukaku’s performance was a positive, what do we make about his comments in an interview with Sky Sports Italia?

Tony Evans, former Football Editor at The Times joins us for ‘The Opposition View’ this week. We talk to Tony about football twitter and the Chelsea-Liverpool rivalry. Is Tuchel modelling Klopp’s style and what of Klopp’s support of Tuchel regarding the potential injuries by over working the players? What are Tony’s thoughts on the Chelsea v Liverpool match being the first legal safe standing match. How will Liverpool cope without their AFCON absentees and is the title race still between Liverpool, City and Chelsea. We wrap up by asking Tony how he sees the match going on Sunday.

In part three, Chidge, JK and Dayne preview the Chelsea v Liverpool match. Does Tuchel have enough players for a team selection? With the make do and mend policy of playing unfit players not working what other options does Tuchel have? Recall loanees? Play some of the youth? A system change? Emergency buys in the window? We discuss the options. And given the mental and physical exhaustion and key injuries how worried are we about getting humped by Liverpool? We discuss how do we see it going & give our predictions.
