Liverpool are on an incredible run of form but manager Jurgen Klopp knows they have to improve their record on the road against top-six rivals.
The Reds may have lost just one of their last 44 league matches, taking a remarkable 115 points from a possible 132, but they have encountered recent struggles away from Anfield against the top sides.
That is something of a turnaround from the 2016-17 season when they won two and drew three of their trips to the top six.
“Obviously there are different ways to win away games, and we have to find one. It’s not good news, this stat, but I don’t feel it,” said Klopp, whose side are looking to set a new club record of seven successive league away wins.
“In 2016, we took points from all the top six and then had other problems, so that’s how life is.
“The longer things like this happen, the more likely it will change. We go there to get a result.
“We cannot go to Chelsea and want a guarantee that you win the game, they are just too strong for that.
“Obviously we have a job do but we will prepare for the game without that stat. It’s all about the quality of the performance.
“It is not written in the stars that we are not allowed to win at Chelsea but it is obviously difficult.”
