Chelsea vs Liverpool - 2013/2014 English Premier League, Round 19
Match date: Sunday, 29 December 2013
Kick Off Time: 16:00 GMT - 17:00 CET - 9:30 PM IST
Venue: Stamford Bridge, London, United Kingdom

 On Sunday, 29th December at 16:00 GMT, Chelsea FC will host Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge for Round 19 of the 2013/2014 English Premier League.
Liverpool played Manchester City better than anyone else has at the Etihad Stadium this season, narrowly losing 2-1 to a Negredo goal (and perhaps poor officiating). The top of the table is so tight that it saw the then-first place Reds slip down to 4th, a position they're happy to be in but know can be bettered after proving their title credentials over the first half of the season. Liverpool is the second-highest scoring side in the Premier League thus far, led by goal-wizard Luis Suarez and playmaker Philippe Coutinho. However, neither team will want to lose this game and may opt for more careful tactics throughout as a draw looks very possible here. Enrique, Coates, Sturridge, Gerrard, and Flanagan will all be out.
This is another treat for viewers as the match pits two title contenders who are presently separated by just a point. Jose Mourinho will put his 69-match unbeaten streak at Stamford Bridge on the line in a big way Sunday. One wonders if this will play into the mind of the Portuguese coach, and he very well may opt for a similar sit-and-defend strategy deployed against Arsenal last week as the game wares on. However, at home the Blues typically display a powerful attacking game, so perhaps we're in for a goal fest with the high-scoring Reds on tap. Torres is expected to return up top as he faces his former club, but the key man will be Eden Hazard on the wings who can cause any defence serious problems. Marco and Bertrand remain out, while Ramires is suspended with 5 yellow cards. 

Possible line-ups:
Probable lineups Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Lampard, Essien; Schurrle, Oscar, Willian; Torres.
Probable lineups Liverpool (4-1-2-3): Mignolet; Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Cissokho; Lucas; Allen, Henderson; Sterling, Suárez, Coutinho.
