Life sometimes calls for enjoying dessert first and kicking off the weekend's slate of games with Liverpool traveling to Stamford Bridge is just that. Chelsea were last seen in the league losing to West Ham, thanks in no small part to the greatest ever player to pair pink swimwear with a man bun, Andy Carroll.
For Liverpool today, Christian Benteke is expected to be fit after a midweek scare, and there is the tantalizing chance that the Reds could be the team that sends Jose Mourinho away from the cold, barren embrace of Roman Abramovich for a second time.
