Chelsea vs Liverpool latest as Premier League set to release fresh fixture update after Queen’s death

The Chelsea and Liverpool game is likely to go on this weekend with the Premier League set to release a statement.

Chelsea’s new manager Graham Potter is likely to make his debut in the Champions League on Wednesday night but there is now a huge chance that his Premier League debut will be against Liverpool.

Potter was plucked from Brighton and Hove Albion and was in line to take charge of the team against Fulham before the Premier League halted all games in a show of respect to Queen Elizabeth II who passed away last week.

The delay might turn out to be a blessing in disguise as it has given the English manager time to work with his new players.

He has been speaking to them and finding out how he can get them on board and get Chelsea back to winning football matches.

The Blues will hope that they are fresh and have gotten over the sacking of Thomas Tuchel whose departure appeared sudden and triggered emotions within some of the fan base and the players.

The midweek Champions League game against Salzburg is likely to come before a Premier League bow against Liverpool which will tell the Chelsea fans more about the direction of the club under new manager Graham Potter.

LondonWorld understand that the Premier League will release a statement confirming games will go ahead this weekend even though they will hold minutes of silence and wear black armbands in paying their respect to the Queen who will be buried next Monday.

The National League have already released a statement confirming that games will go ahead this weekend after the halt.

Midweek English football league games are expected to now go on after the pause - with the EFL and the Premier League expected to provide the latest guidelines in the coming hours ahead of holding logistics meeting.

Ten Premier League games were postponed over the weekend, including Monday’s match between Leeds United and Nottingham Forest.
