The Blues hope to build on their victory over Crystal Palace in their trip to Anfield this weekend.

Graham Potter is confident that Chelsea have enough quality to beat Liverpool after coming through a “tough spell”.

The Blues ended a disappointing run of four winless games when they defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 on Sunday. 

An injury crisis sidelined ten Chelsea players, but Potter says his players are making their returns to the training ground.

 “The win has been important for us, but it’s just a win. We have to go to Liverpool next and back it up,” Potter said.

“I’m confident, but I respect Liverpool and Anfield. It’s a tough place to go at any point, a fantastic football club. Jurgen [Klopp] is a top manager and [they are] a top team, but we’ve come through a tough spell.

“Players are coming back, new players are arriving. There is a buzz at the training ground.”

Chelsea have made six signings so far this winter, increasing their squad depth for the second half of the season. Widespread reports in English media claim Potter is planning to allow Mykhaylo Mudryk to make his Premier League debut against Liverpool this weekend. The Ukrainian striker is a major part of Potter’s plans to solve Chelsea’s goalscoring issues.
