Illustration for article titled The Deadspin Pub: Featuring The EPLs Top Two

There's really nothing that needs to be said. Keeley Hazel just looks hotter in the beautiful blue of Chelsea. Oh, and Chelsea happens to be hosting Liverpool with first place atop the English Premier League's table at stake after nearly a quarter of the season. The Scousers and Blues have each racked up 20 points through eight league matches, while Hull (fucking) City has matched them through nine. Can Liverpool take points from Chelsea who are unbeatable at the Bridge? Continue after the jump for a breakdown of this huge matchup, plus the rest of the day's televised matches, and a managerial shakeup in the EPL. Match of the Week EPL Chelsea vs. Liverpool at 9:30 on Setanta The Scousers have never managed so much as a single goal at Stamford Bridge during league play under Rafa Benitez, and with Torres injurd it seems highly unlikely that Liverpool will earn a point, much less three. Of course Chelsea is somewhat depleted in their own right. Ballack, Drogba, and Joe Cole join Michael Essien in the spectators booth. However Carvalho will return to the lineup to form an dominating back line in front of Petr Cech.
