An exciting week saw the UEFA Champions League and Europa League group stages kick off, with many clubs getting ready for a busy portion of their 2016-17 schedule.
We look at five key matches around the European leagues this weekend.
5ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE – CHELSEA vs. LIVERPOOL
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16TH – STAMFORD BRIDGE
Chelsea play host to Liverpool on Friday evening with a clash of philosophies in store to make for an intriguing encounter.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte brings his side into the encounter looking to rebound from a disappointing 2-2 draw at Swansea City last week. On the other end of the spectrum, Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp are flying high after an emphatic 4-1 home victory over Leicester City.
Conte’s defensive tactics against Klopp’s high-press system should make for an entertaining match.
