Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match in Premier League this week and one of the most interesting games, Chelsea take on Liverpool.
Chelsea started this season very poor and after 10 rounds they are standing at the 15th position with only 11 points. There are some rumors that Jose Mourinho is under pressure due to poor result and may be sack in the case of another defeat. Team from London were one of the main favorites to win the title this season, but it will be hard for them do it after 5 defeats in 10 matches. After three away matches in three different competitions, Chelsea will play upfront their supporters and everyone expect win. Mourinho is not happy due to many critics that coming from medias.
“It’s a bit strange because a few months ago when I won so many matches and I was champion of England, people were saying there were things more important than the results. “In this moment the results are more important than anything. It’s a contradiction.” – said Jose Mourinho.
Liverpool didn’t make good start of the season, so Brandon Rodgers had been replaced by Jürgen Klopp. He brought some freshness in team, but he is still without win in Premier League (0-2-0), so he is looking for the first win. Team from Anfield are undefeated in the last 10 matches in all competitions (3-7-0), so they believe that can continue with solid performance and take at least one point. Visitors lost only once away since May this year in all competitions so everyone in club hope that they can stay unbeaten at Stamford Bridge.

In home team Diego Costa is doubtful, but his injury is not so hard, so the could start the match. Branislav Ivanovic and Thibaut Courtois are both out due to injury, while Nemanja Matic is available after serving a one-game ban against Stoke City in the Capital One Cup.
Liverpool may be without Christian Benteke who’s doubtful for this game, but he could be in the first eleven. Kolo Toure have some problems with an injury and could miss this game, but the good news is that James Milner returns from a one-match suspension.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Prediction
Both teams started very poor this season and both desperately need three points. The first most important for both managers is to stay unbeaten, so I believe that both will play very defensively and waiting for their chance in the attack. I expect tough game and no more than 2 goals, if we even see any.
