Charlie Nicholas is backing Chelsea FC to end Liverpool FC’s winning run by holding the Premier League leaders to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

The Blues have started to find their feet under club legend Frank Lampard in the Premier League following an impressive 5-2 victory over Wolves at Molineux last time out.

England Under-21 international Tammy Abraham became the third Englishman to score a Premier League hat-trick in Chelsea FC’s rout of Wolves to silence his critics.

Chelsea FC will undergo their first big test since losing 4-0 to Manchester United in their opening Premier League fixture of the 2019-20 under Sarri’s replacement.

Liverpool FC haven’t put a foot wrong in the Premier League so far this season following five successive victories to secure top spot in the table.

The Reds are five points ahead of defending champions Manchester City thanks to victories over Norwich City, Southampton, Arsenal, Newcastle United and Burnley.

Former Arsenal midfielder Nicholas is backing Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC to share the spoils at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

“I think Frank Lampard wants to attack, which opens up the counter-attack scenario for Liverpool. They both got bad results in Europe through the week, they are making mistakes that they didn’t make last season and you can get at their defence,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.

“Pedro and Willian behind Tammy Abraham is a trio of danger. They need to find the killer pass in this game, which I think they will. Liverpool will pin them in when they can, but it will be an open game of football, which will see Liverpool drop their 100 per cent record.”

Liverpool FC lost 2-0 to Serie A side Napoli in Italy in their opening Champions League fixture in midweek.

Chelsea FC suffered a 1-0 defeat by Valencia at Stamford Bridge to make a disappointing start to their European campaign.
