Trying to find a Liverpool v Chelsea live stream? Well, you're in the right place!

In the tastiest of encounters on this weekend's Premier League billing, Liverpool face off with Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Both sides have come flying out of the blocks in 2021/22. The Reds followed up their 3-0 win at Norwich on the opening day by beating Burnley 2-0 last time out, while the visitors saw off Arsenal 2-0 after kicking off their campaign with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp and his compatriot Thomas Tuchel will both believe they've got teams capable of going all the way this season, and this game represents a fantastic early opportunity to make a statement of their title ambitions.

Mason Mount's goal was enough to give Chelsea all three points in the sides' last meeting - at Anfield in March - after Liverpool had won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the campaign, at which time Frank Lampard was still in charge of the Blues.

Klopp looks set to welcome Andy Robertson back to the starting 11, after the left-back missed the first two games of the season through injury, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should return to the squad following the birth of his child. Fabinho may not be involved, though, having missed the win over Burnley due to the death of his father.

N'Golo Kante should start here, having come off the bench at Arsenal, with Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek - both of whom recently tested positive for Covid - the only doubts for Chelsea.

Kick-off is at 5:30pm BST and the game is being shown live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event the UK

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
