Liverpool vs Chelsea Match Preview
Liverpool and Chelsea will both look to make a move up the Premier League table when the two heavyweights clash this weekend. This Liverpool vs Chelsea fixture will be played at Anfield on Saturday, November 25, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions.
Liverpool did the unthinkable by collapsing from a 3-0 lead against Sevilla in the Champions League to finish with 3-3. Although Jurgen Klopp’s men would have gleefully accepted a draw before the start of the game, but the manner of this latest defensive collapse should worry the German tactician. They are unbeaten in five matches in all competitions, but are still fifth in the Premier League (22 pts, W6, D4, L2) with a 12-point deficit on league leaders Manchester City. The home form is a solace for Klopp with Liverpool winning four of the six games and drawing against Burnley and Manchester United. The Reds’ form at home is slightly better than their overall record but it will once again be a test of their top-four credentials in this Liverpool vs Chelsea fixture.
Chelsea are in a much better shape and form after two consecutive 4-0 wins. West Brom were brushed aside last weekend in the Premier League while it was the turn of Qarabag in the Champions League during midweek. They have now won six of their last seven games in all competitions while winning four in a row in the Premier League. The Blues have been near-perfect away from home this season, as they have five wins from six trips. Their only failure was the defeat at Selhurst Park to Crystal Palace, but the run of form has pitch-forked the Blues into third in the Premier League (25 pts, W8, D1, L3). That is still nine points away from the top-placed Manchester City, but the Blues must be eyeing the second spot occupied by Manchester United who are just one point apart.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Predictions
Ten of the last 11 meetings between these sides saw both sides getting on the scoresheet. Since Chelsea have scored in every away game this season plus the defensive frailties of the hosts make it prudent to pick an away win or draw. Individually, Mohammed Salah looks good to score a goal anytime after five goals in his last four Premier League appearances.
