A new era for Chelsea is starting with quite the matchup.

The Blues are hosting Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in a season-opening showdown between two of the Premier League’s most prominent clubs.

Chelsea made headlines this summer by hiring Mauricio Pochettino as manager, and he is tasked with helping the team bounce back from a disappointing 12th place finish last season. Pochettino has coached Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham in the past but will have his hands full right away against Liverpool.

The Reds brought in Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai and will be counting on the star power of Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk as they also eye an improvement on last season’s fifth-place finish.

HT – 1-1 at the break…but both sides could have had two if it weren’t for two tight offside calls.
