Neither side was particularly convincing during their season-opening Premier League fixtures, but Chelsea and defending champions Liverpool clash at Stamford Bridge this Sunday.

The Blues have a golden opportunity to lay down an early marker in the 2020-21 campaign against a Liverpool side who conceded three against newcomers Leeds last weekend. There will be additional scrutiny on Kepa Arrizabalaga for the hosts, after the under-fire goalkeeper was heavily criticised for a shaky display against Brighton on Monday.

Will he and Frank Lampard’s men have the last laugh against the Reds, whose last top-flight defeat by Chelsea came in May 2018? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting Tips

Chelsea needed an inspired response, powered by young fullback Reece James, as they battled to beat Brighton on Monday evening. Leandro Trossard’s strike swerved under Kepa but two minutes later, James responded with his first Premier League goal.

What a finish it was too, firing from distance unchallenged and watching as it flew into the top corner with aplomb. He created an assist ten minutes later for Kurt Zouma, heading the 20-year-old’s corner delivery beyond a helpless Mathew Ryan after a wicked deflection.

Timo Werner impressed on his top-flight debut, though the same couldn’t exactly be said for Kai Havertz – who had his flashes, but they were few and far between. It’ll be interesting to see whether Lampard makes any alterations when Liverpool come to town, buoyed by their gritty 4-3 win over Leeds last weekend.

Mohamed Salah netted a hat-trick, while Sadio Mane and captain Jordan Henderson were among the better performers in a chaotic seven-goal thriller at Anfield. How will they fare this time?

Chelsea vs Liverpool Correct Score Predictions

Liverpool are the defending champions and find themselves justified favourites to prevail here, but Chelsea themselves are unpredictable to say the least.

Watch how the two sides start in a match likely to be decided by narrow margins – I’m predicting over 2.5 goals in a spectacle which usually provides plenty of action and goalscoring opportunities.
