Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting Tips
The Reds are toping the table of the Premier League after five rounds into the new season. They have all wins so far, but can they keep this form going? They did lose to Napoli earlier this week in the Champions League, which might be a sign that they’re slowing down. But, even if it weren’t for the European defeat, they would still find it hard to beat Chelsea in London.
Stamford Bridge has been Chelsea’s fortress for years, a place where they rarely give away points. Still, they did lose a home game mid-week in the Champions League, when Valencia came to town. But, in the Premier League, they’re without a defeat since December 2018.
And in the season 2019-20, they’ve played two draws, one with Leicester and one with Sheffield. They’re still waiting for their first home win of the season and their fans would love for it to come on the weekend. The Blues have a pretty decent record against the Reds, especially when playing at home. Their recent duels have been really close games and another one is expected this Sunday.
Although Chelsea are strong at home, Liverpool are the favourite in this game. The reason is simple – the Reds have fantastic players. This team has scored 15 goals in the previous 5 Premier League matches while allowing only four goals in total. Chelsea, on the other hand, have a goal difference of 11:11.
Another thing going in favour of the visiting team is that they’ve already won a game against a team from the ‘big 6’ this season. They beat Arsenal 3:1. Chelsea, however, got hammered by Manchester United 4:0 in their only clash with a ‘big 6’ team so far.
On top of everything, Liverpool have fewer problems with injuries. Their main absentee is Alisson, although his replacement Adrian has been more than decent so far. Chelsea, on the other hand, have plenty of players struggling with fitness.
For all these reasons, Liverpool need to be thought of as the favorite in this game. And if you’re not willing to risk your money by betting on an away win, you can still get a nice value if you bet on double chance Draw/Liverpool.
