Chelsea hosts Liverpool in the marquee match of the Premier League on Sunday, with the Reds fighting to retain its 100 per cent record in the league. Frank Lampard's men have been excellent in an attacking sense but struggled defensively in each of its league outings so far.

Liverpool hasn't kept a clean sheet yet having had the best defensive record last season, when it lost the title by a point to Manchester City.

When is the match?

The kick-off is scheduled at 9.00pm on Sunday, with Stamford Bridge hosting the prestigious fixture.

Where are the two teams placed?

Liverpool is atop the table with 15 points from five matches, while free-scoring Chelsea in 9th and with a chance to move into the top four should it win on Sunday.
