‘We won at Stamford Bridge so why can’t we win at Anfield?’

Simon Mignolet is targeting a repeat of the performance that saw Liverpool win at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season when Chelsea visit Anfield tonight.

First-half goals from Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson proved enough for the Reds to claim a 2-1 victory in west London back in September – a result that puts them alongside Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur as one of just three teams to have beaten the Blues in the Premier League this term.

A change in formation from Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, and a subsequent 13-game winning streak, followed soon after that loss to Jürgen Klopp’s side.

However, Liverpool’s outstanding display in the reverse fixture gives Mignolet belief that they can defeat the league leaders again this evening.

“Well actually after the game I think Chelsea changed their system, so that shows a lot,” the goalkeeper told Liverpoolfc.com, when asked how much confidence the Reds can take from that win at Stamford Bridge.

“Of course after that they went on a really good run, they have really good momentum, they play really good football, create a lot of chances, don’t give many away, so all credit to them.

“But we played our game there – we took the game to them, scored two goals and defended really well. That’s what we’ll have to do again on Tuesday.

“It will be a different game, but if you can win at Stamford Bridge there’s no reason why you can’t do it at home, at Anfield.”

Tonight’s clash will see Liverpool, the Premier League’s top goalscorers, come up against the division’s stingiest defence.

Chelsea’s adaption to Conte’s three-at-the-back formation has helped them concede just 15 goals in 22 top-flight games this season, but Mignolet feels that shape could present the Reds with chances – as long as they stick to their game plan.
