Jose Mourinho's side host Jurgen Klopp's team in what has been an intriguing fixture over the years.
This season sees both sides struggling for their best form, with Jose Mourinho firmly under pressure at Stamford Bridge, and Brendan Rodgers having already been replaced by Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
Both players are struggling for form this season, though, but who has enjoyed a better campaign? We decided to compare the pair to see who comes out on top.
|Total Final Third Passes per Game||Successful Final Third Passes per Game||Total Attempted Assist per Game||Ontarget Attempted Assist per Game||Total Scoring Attempts per Game||Ontarget Scoring Attempts per Game||Total Contest per Game||Won Contest per Game|
And it’s a clear win for Hazard, who comes out on top in six key attacking areas.
So far the Belgian has posted better stats when it comes to total final third passes and successful final third passes per game, as well as attempted assists and on target attempted assists.
He also comes out on top when it comes to dribbling, with him enjoying more contests per game, and also winning more contests per game than the Brazilian.
It’s not all bad news for Coutinho, though, as he comes out on top when it comes to total scoring attempts and on target scoring attempts.
A big win for the Chelsea star then, who despite his struggles, has so far enjoyed a better season that Coutinho, if these stats are to be believed.
Who comes out on top when they go head-to-head on Saturday is sure to be pivotal to which side will leave with all three points.
