Mignolet: No reason we can't beat Chelsea

Cape Town - Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is confident they can beat Chelsea when the Premier League leaders visit Anfield on Tuesday night.

The Reds are the only team to beat Antonio Conte's men at Stamford Bridge this season, and Mignolet believes they have what it takes to replicate that performance.

Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson scored first-half goals against the Blues to help Jurgen Klopp's team to a 2-1 victory back in September.

The club's form has dipped in recent weeks, with Liverpool suffering two league losses and elimination from both the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

But despite this, the Reds' stopper remains confident.

“Well actually after the game I think Chelsea changed their system, so that shows a lot,” the goalkeeper told the club's official website. 

“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.”
