Liverpool vs Chelsea: how and where to watch - times, TV, online

Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield this weekend, in what is one of the standout games of the year in the Premier League to date.

Visitors Chelsea travel to Liverpool after back-to-back wins with a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge against Crystal Palace in their season opener followed up by an impressive win at the Emirates last Sunday with Lukaku hitting the ground running by firing the Blues ahead on his (re) debut.

Liverpool too, have recorded 2-0 and 3-0 wins in their season openers with a comfortable win at Carrrow Road opening the campaign followed up with a solid win over the 'Clarets' of Burnley last weekend at Anfield.

Klopp on CR7 and Tuchel

The German manager was asked about Cristaino's return to the Premier League during the pre-game press conference. Klopp said: "I watched that (the Ronaldo transfer) like a football supporter and it is not about me to judge that.

"If other clubs can do this, it is not a business of the future. It is for now and immediately.

"That is how some clubs are working and that is fine. There must be different ways, a team - two or three years later and you need success... You need to make sure you develop as a team and club, and that is what we did."

Klopp added that he expected a "big fight" against Chelsea, with both teams on great form in the first weeks of the season.

"There is not an easy way through any line and both teams are very well organised... Chelsea are in a very good moment... It is a tough opponent but we are not in the worst moment and hopefully we can show that."

Klopp spoke glowingly of Chelsea counterpart Thomas Tuchel, saying no manager had a bigger impact than his compatriot last season.

"The combination of financial wealth and football knowledge is always a threat for us. What they are doing is really good. Thomas is an exceptional manager and coach and he has all my respect," said the Liverpool boss.

Tuchel on Liverpool 'stress-test'

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is eager to see how the club's record signing Romelu Lukaku gets on against Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk in tomorrow's game.

"Liverpool with Van Dijk is a different Liverpool than without Van Dijk," Tuchel told reporters on Friday. "For Romelu, it's a big challenge. He had now one match with us, which was a very good start, so from now on we are into details.

"The stress test is on tomorrow at Anfield... I am not sure if he has already reached his top level, maybe not because he has only one game in his legs, but he will have a good match tomorrow because he loves to play in these kinds of matches.
