The Carabao Cup clash between Liverpool and Chelsea on Wednesday night acted as a dress rehearsal for the Premier League match between the two sides.
After welcoming the Blues to Anfield last night, the Reds make the trip south to face Maurizio Sarri's men at Stamford Bridge in the league on Saturday.
And after losing their unbeaten start to the campaign, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to take his revenge in the competition that really matters to him and his fans.
Chelsea, however, will be keen to get back to winning ways in the league. Their 100% record was ended by a goalless draw with West Ham last time out and they know that if they beat Liverpool they will be joint top of the table.
The Liverpool side that arrives at the Bridge this weekend will be vastly different to the Carabao Cup team of last night, given that Klopp made eight changes from the side that beat Southampton last weekend.
But he knows what to expect from the Blues now.

Klopp told LFCTV after the game: "The good thing is we know much more now what will happen on Saturday because we've felt it.
"We'll use it for two days, to prepare for Saturday and see how it works.
"We can do better, now we know more, for us it's always helpful if we know exactly what to do. We were well prepared but the game helped massively, you saw, minute by minute, we understood exactly what happens.
"We needed time to get used to it, but we have to take moments like this in a game, learn from the game."
