Michael Owen has revealed to be excited to witness the Virgil van Dijk vs Romelu Lukaku duel play out today.
Former football star thinks Chelsea are doing an amazing job with their new signing.
“Chelsea are looking fantastic though. They don’t seem to have any weaknesses so far and the size of their squad makes them a hard team to look beyond.
“I loved what I saw from Lukaku against Arsenal and his movement, in particular, was outstanding. He bullied the Arsenal defence so I’m curious to see how he gets on here.
If any defender could deal with him, it would be Van Dijk, what a duel that will be.” he said.
However, Owen believes Liverpool will have an advantage today, claiming that playing at home will help.
“Call me biased but I still like Liverpool’s chances here! With the fans back at Anfield, this will feel like a proper occasion, and I think they can edge it 2-1.”
The Reds will welcome the Blues at the Anfield Stadium today, at 17:30 BST.
