The Premier League serves up a classic fixture between two of the biggest teams in England. Chelsea are unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel, and they will put their unbeaten run to test against Liverpool who are just emerging from a dip in form at Anfield.
With a title charge seemingly beyond this pair, they are in search of a top-four position at the end of the season. Read on to get our betting predictions for this fixture.
Liverpool snapped their four games losing streak in the Premier League when they handed a 2-0 defeat to struggling Sheffield United, in their last outing at Anfield. The win over the relegation candidates also saw Liverpool keep their first clean sheet since December 19th.
Jurgen Klopp and his charges will want to keep things that way for as long as they can in their quest for a top-four place.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are far cry from the team that took the Premier League by storm last season. That form last season saw them clinch their first title in three decades. However, they have been undone by a string of unfortunate injuries and bad results. Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are long term injury absentees and the situation has impacted on the team negatively.
Having said that, the current champions are still in the hunt for a Champions League spot and they have a chance to overhaul Chelsea and get ahead of the Londoners in the race for Europe.
Chelsea have shown resurgence since German coach, Thomas Tuchel, took over the reins at Stamford Bridge. The former PSG and Dortmund manager has managed to steady the ship and the defence, in particular, has witnessed some improvements. Chelsea have only shipped in two goals in nine games in all competitions and they remain unbeaten in as many games.
The team from the capital will go into the game with their new found confidence and they will draw inspiration from the 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League when they square up to Liverpool.
The two teams may be out of the title contention, but there is certainly something to fight for in this fixture. Therefore, we expect a keenly contested and very tight game. Chelsea have an improved defence and the goal-scoring problem of Liverpool is well documented. So we fancy Under 2.5 Goals to be scored @ 2.00 with Melbet Welcome Bonus for our first tip.
Going by the nature of the teams and the importance tied to this fixture, chances are that both managers will take a cautious approach while sizing up the opponent in the first half. Consequently, we do not expect a lot in terms of attacking forays. Therefore, we are predicting a First Half Draw @ 2.23 as our final tip.
