Chelsea vs Liverpool Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Saturday early afternoon match, first match of the round and a derby of the round. What a start! Chelsea vs Liverpool, two teams with great tradition and always interesting to watch. Chelsea scored at least one goal in each of their last eight matches. 80% of Chelsea's matches had over 2.5 goals scored in total, while on the other side, 70% of Liverpool's games had under 2.5 goals and 64% of Liverpool's conceded goals were conceded at home. Two teams played draw in their last three matches and Liverpool have been drawing at both half time and full time in their last three matches in the Premier League while Chelsea managed to win only two out of their last six matches. Neither of two is showing their best this season and both teams have problems with injuries and missing players. Both managers are eager to skip defeat in this match. Many missing players on both sides, incomplete defense line and midfield will force both teams to play more focused on defending their own goal and wait for a chance for a fast counterattack. Lots of long balls and skipping middle is expected, so this time we probably won’t watch very attractive football, but hopefully we will see a lot of goals on both sides. Odds are quite high for the match so you should definitely consider this match when it comes to betting.
Chelsea have few missing players for this match against Liverpool. Thibaut Courtois and Branislav Ivanovic are injured and they will not play for sure. Diego Costa and Pedro are not fully fit and they are doubtful for this match. All other players are fully fit and highly motivated to beat Liverpool in front of their fans.
On the other side Liverpool have many missing players for this match. Jon Flanagan, Jordan Henderson, Joseph Gomez, Danny Ings, Jordan Rossiter and Kolo Touré are all injured and they will not play for sure. All other players are fully fit and ready for the match except Daniel Sturridge who cannot play against Chelsea. All players are highly motivated and for sure Klopp will try to earn points here.
Possible starting lineups
Chelsea:Begovic; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry, Zouma; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Hazard, Pedro; Costa
Liverpool:Mignolet; Moreno, Skrtel, Sakho, Clyne; Can, Lucas, Milner; Coutinho, Lallana; Benteke
