  • Chelsea wins: 56

  • Chelsea wins: 21
  • Draws: 16
  • Liverpool wins: 23

The close nature of this contest is backed by the fact that all of the last clashes between Chelsea and Liverpool had ended in draws. What’s even more amazing is that all of the last 4 Chelsea vs Liverpool head-to-heads finished in 0-0 draws. With no fixture in competitive English football ever finishing goalless five times in a row could Chelsea and Liverpool write a new page in the annals of their rivalry? 

Last season that same 0-0 scoreline was registered both in January and April when Chelsea and Liverpool met. The goalless draw in April started an 11-game unbeaten run (W7 D4) for Liverpool, with this game the only one in which the Reds failed to score.
