This is a bit of an unenviable task for Cardiff in this one as they have to try and shut down the title-chasing Liverpool. Cardiff picked up a win in midweek to give themselves a shot at survival. Liverpool also took a win last weekend in their final game against one of the other big six teams in the division. Will they continue to drive on towards the finish line?

There is a tough task ahead for Cardiff in this one. They snapped a three-match losing streak in midweek with a 2-0 away win at the slumping Brighton. That leaves Cardiff heading into the weekend of top-flight action three points from safety. But in their final four games of the season, they have to go up against Liverpool in this one and then on the final day of the season make a trip to Manchester United. So they are really going to have to dig out something special to get themselves safe. Anything out of this home fixture against a high flying Liverpool would be a huge bonus for the Bluebirds.
The home record of Cardiff this season is W6 D2 L9 but they have lost three of their last four there (W1). The Bluebirds have managed 19 goals on home soil this season but problematically they have conceded at just under two goals per home fixture. 65% of all of Cardiff’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. In total Cardiff have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their home games which is just about average. Cardiff have scored 63% of their home goals this season in the second period of fixtures. Their record against the big six teams in the Premier League this season is not good as they have lost all 10 such fixtures.
A Liverpool are on a 4-1 home win over Cardiff in October
Liverpool have won all three of their previous Premier League meetings
The Reds have scored 13 goals in their last three games against Cardiff
Each of the last four meetings in all competitions have ended over 3.5 goals
With a bit of something special from Mo Salah last weekend, Liverpool produced a 2-0 home victory over Chelsea. Three of their four remaining games now are against sides currently in the bottom half of the table, with the exception being Wolves. So their title hopes are still very much alive and kicking at the moment and they will be looking for their third straight Premier League away win on Sunday. This season out on the road Liverpool have produced a record of W11 D5 L1 and they are undefeated in their last six away from Anfield.
The victory over Chelsea last weekend was their first clean sheet in five Premier League games. Liverpool have conceded in their last two road fixtures which were against Fulham and Southampton. But still, Liverpool have only conceded the 10 away goals all season at an average of 0.6 per game. In attack, they have scored an average of 1.7 goals per away fixture. They have claimed a clean sheet in 47% of their road games this season. Home and away Liverpool are undefeated in their last 13 top-flight games and of the goals that they have scored out on the road this season 66% of them have been after the halftime break. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league games played.
Liverpool don’t look as if they are going to slip up between now and the end of the season. They are pulling out wins when they are playing all that well and that is really not much opponents can do about that. Liverpool can get the win on the board in this one with a clean sheet.

Liverpool v Chelsea Premier League Preview, 14th April 4.30pm
A huge game for Liverpool and their title ambitions. On paper, it is really their toughest game of their remaining fixtures now. Can they secure three points at this crucial stage? Chelsea also have a lot to play for as they turn up at Anfield. The Blues are battling hard for a top-four finish and can’t afford to drop points either. Read our Liverpool v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 12th, 2019 at 5:17 p.m.)
Liverpool have had some scrapes in their last few games but they keep returning of the wins. They benefited from mistakes from Fulham and Tottenham to win the recent games against those opponents, and then they had to battle back from falling behind and Southampton in their last fixture. So they have been under pressure but they have so far handled the pressure, winning each of their last four league fixtures. It is a 12 match undefeated streak of form that Liverpool are currently on in the Premier League. They are on a four-match winning streak on home soil.
Liverpool home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D2 from their 16 matches played. The Reds have averaged 2.9 goals per home game. Their defence has also been bang on point with them conceding just 10 goals at home all season for an average of 0.6 per game. That having been said home and away Liverpool have no clean sheet in their last four played. 69% of league games at Anfield this season have made it over 2.5 goals, even with Liverpool claiming a clean sheet in 56% of home fixtures. Liverpool have been winning at the halftime break in 11 of their home games and they are on a 12 match scoring streak on home soil.
Each of the last three league clashes at Anfield have ended 1-1
Chelsea are undefeated in their last eight trips to Anfield in all competitions
There was a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge between them earlier this season
Five of the last seven meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Chelsea are currently on a three-match winning streak although the level of opposition in streak hasn’t been the highest. The big thing that comes into question for Chelsea is their away form. They have won two of their last three on the road but looking back at their extended form the Blues have lost four of their last six Premier League away games, failing to score in any of those defeats. The two victories which they have taken in that sequence were against Cardiff and Fulham who are both in the bottom three.
Away from home, this season Chelsea are W9 D1 L6 and in that campaign, on the road, they have scored 23 goals which is an average of 1.4 per game. Chelsea have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six road fixtures which is a huge concern for them heading to Anfield. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last 13 played. Chelsea have opened the scoring in nine of their road fixtures this season while six of their nine away successes have been by just the one goal margin only.
Chelsea have a lot to play for and they don’t have a bad record at Anfield either. However, Liverpool have been in tremendous form at home and luck seems to be on their side. They may well find a way to bag a precious three points in this one.

Liverpool will look to get their title challenge more points as they step out at St Mary’s against Southampton on Friday night. With Man City in FA Cup action on the weekend, Liverpool will again find themselves a game ahead of the Citizens. Southampton gave their survival hopes a boost last weekend with a win over Brighton.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 2nd, 2019 at 3:55 p.m.)
The Saints battled to a 1-0 win at Brighton last weekend. That was a tremendous result for them as it nudged them away from the drop zone. It was also their third win in their last four league games too. They had a huge success in their last home game, getting three points off of the visiting Tottenham. That is back to back home wins that the Saints have now recorded in the top flight. Overall this season they have only won four on home soil (D6 L5) so there has been a marked improvement recently. Getting something out of this game would be huge for them.
The Saints have scored in each of their last ten at home, so have that going for them too. Two-thirds of Southampton’s home games this term have made it over the 2.5 goal line. The Saints have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per game, only picking up the three clean sheets at St Marys this season. Both teams have scored in 73% of Southampton’s home games. Just three teams have a worse home record than Southampton have in this season’s top flight, but there have been drastic recent improvements.
Liverpool took a 3-0 home win over Southampton in September
The Reds are on a three-match winning streak over the Saints
Both teams have scored in none of the last seven meetings
The Saints are winless in five against Liverpool in the league
Is fate on Liverpool’s side in the title race? Last weekend they were outplayed at home by Tottenham in the second half of their fixture, but then the Reds still managed to get all three points thanks to a late own goal by the Lilywhites. That moved Liverpool on to a three-match winning streak in the league and continued their good home form. However, they have only won two of their last five away from Anfield in the top flight (W1 L1) and that is where they have been feeling the pressure in this title race. Their last two away wins have been by a one-goal margin over Brighton and Fulham.
Liverpool are W10 D5 L1 this season on their travels, but they have won all six away games played against sides lower than 12th place in the division. The Reds have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season, with only nine goal conceded. Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals because they have been so tight at the back. Liverpool have claimed a clean sheet in 50% of their road fixtures. The Reds have scored 65% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. Liverpool have opened the scoring in 11 of their 16 away games. No team has conceded fewer league goals than Liverpool.
Recent meetings between these two have been fairly tight and more could be expected on Friday night. It’s just about getting the job done for Liverpool at this stage of the season. Back the visitors to grind out a one-goal margin win.

Liverpool have won their last two league games as they try and muscle their way to the title this season. They are undefeated in their last ten Premier League games. As Manchester City are playing early on Saturday, Liverpool will know the state of play at the top of the table before kick-off in this one. Regardless, if they win, they stay top. Liverpool are yet to suffer a home loss in the league this season and they have scored in each of their last eleven at Anfield. They are on a three-match winning streak at home, netting 12 goals in those games, shipping only two. The Reds have picked up a clean sheet in two of their last three home games.
They have taken four clean sheets in their last six, home and away. Liverpool have scored 44 goals across their home games, which is just under three goals per game on average. Their record at Anfield in the top flight is W13 D2 L0. They have been consistently strong in defence all season and they have only shipped 9 goals on Merseyside so far this season. That is a clean sheet in 60% of home games taken by them. 53% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Only three of Liverpool’s home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin.
Liverpool were 2-1 winners when they met Spurs earlier this season
Spurs have won just one of their last 12 EPL games against Liverpool
Two of the last three meetings at Anfield have ended in a draw (EPL)
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings
Tottenham’s form has slipped back badly. They have taken a D1 L3 record in their last four league outings only, the point there coming in a North London derby draw against Arsenal. So their title challenge rapidly fell away and now they have some work to do in a tight fight for a top-four finish. The Lilywhites though are on a three-match losing streak on their Premier League travels at the moment. Spurs are at W11 D0 L5 away from home this term. Harry Kane has scored in three of Tottenham’s last four league games.
Out on the road Spurs have averaged exactly two goals per game, so have been delivering well. Their defence hasn’t been as tight lately though with no clean sheet in any of their last four away from Wembley. 69% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Tottenham have collected a clean sheet in 38% of their away games, and they have been leading at the half time break in 10 of their 16 away games. Of the goals which they have conceded away from home this season, 79% of them have been after the half time break. Spurs have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three away games.
Spurs really have something to prove in this one with their form having gone down the pan. Unfortunately, they are meeting a Liverpool side in title mode at the moment and the Reds are still worth backing. Liverpool to win & both teams to score.

The Cottagers slipped to their sixth straight league defeat last weekend. That was in a 3-1 defeat out at Leicester. It leaves them in heaps and heaps of relegation trouble. As a positive they have scored in three of their last four games and in their last home game, they did put in a good spirited performance in a 2-1 loss against neighbours Chelsea. Fulham have lost all four of their home games this season against sides currently in the top six.
They did score in all but one of those though. Fulham’s home form for the season is W4 D3 L7. In total Fulham have scored 18 home goals, but they have conceded at an average of two goals per home game. They have been stuck on only the one home clean sheet this season. Home away, Fulham have no clean sheet in ten, conceding at least two goals in each of those ten games. They have the third-worst home record in the top flight currently.
Liverpool took a 2-0 home win over Fulham in November
The Reds are on a five-match winning streak against Fulham
Liverpool have won their last two visits to Craven Cottage
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings
The Reds earned a good home win over Burnley last weekend. They then went out in midweek and produced a fantastic display to win at Bayern Munich in the Champions League. But they have only drawn each of their last three Premier League away games, at West Ham, Man Utd and Everton. Their overall away form for the season is W9 D5 L1 and with title rivals Man City not in league action this weekend, Liverpool go top with three points.
Liverpool have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season, conceding just the eight goals in their fifteen away games. Only 40% of their away games have made it over the 2.5 goal line because of Liverpool’s great defence. Each of their last four away games have gone under the goal line. The Reds have earned a clean sheet in 53% of away games. The Reds are undefeated in four away from home and in nine, home and away in the top flight. Liverpool have scored two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of games.
Liverpool should have enough to expose the creaking defence of Fulham. The Reds should be able to get the win by a margin of a couple goals you would imagine. This is a good game for them right now.

Liverpool have turned into a cautious and uninspiring away side since the turn of the New Year. Last weekend they played out a 0-0 draw against Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. That is back-to-back 0-0 away draws that they have recorded now. But still, while they are just W2 L4 in their last six league games, they have some great home form still going for them.
The Reds have won nine of their last 10 league games at Anfield (D1) and their last two victories there have been with clean sheets. Home and away Liverpool have not conceded in any of their last four league fixtures. While the goals have dried up for them away from home they are still in fine scoring form at home.

In total they average 2.8 goals per home game, this season and they have conceded just seven at Anfield. 64% of league games Anfield this season have gone over 2.5 goals. In total there has been a clean sheet for the Reds in 64% of their home games.
Their overall home record for the season stands at W12 D2. Liverpool have also been leading at the halftime break in nine of their 14 home fixtures. There are undefeated all season on home soil, and they are on a 10 match scoring streak at Anfield. Home league games this season.
Liverpool were 3-1 winners at Turf Moor in December
The Reds have won their last two against Burnley
Last season’s corresponding fixture at Anfield ended in a 1-1 draw
Burnley have won one of their last nine against Liverpool in all competitions
Burnley have put together a great run of form, going unbeaten in 8 to pull themselves clear of relegation troubles. However, there are just been a bit of a reversal fortunes for them recently having lost their last two against Newcastle Crystal Palace. So their bubble has been burst and they need to dig in a little bit deeper right now.
The Clarets are W2 D2 L1 in their last five road fixtures in the Premier League. The last road trip went badly though as they suffered a 2-0 reverse at Newcastle. Burnley have an overall away record of W3 D4 L8 for the season.
Burnley have averaged under a goal per game away from home this season while they have conceded at 1.8 goals per game on average. 40% of the away goals that Burnley have been involved in this season have ended up over 3.5 goals. The Clarets have only picked up the two clean sheets away from home this season, both of those were 0-0 draws.
Five of the eight away defeats that Burnley have suffered this season have been by a two goal margin. The Clarets have been level at the halftime break in nine of their 15 away games. Burnley have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six, home and away. They have conceded roughly two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.
Liverpool should be able to express themselves more in this one at home than they were able to do so at Goodison Park last weekend. The Reds have tremendous home form and this could be a comfortable three points with a clean sheet for them.

The Toffees secured a 3-0 away win at Cardiff in midweek, snapping a three-match losing streak that they were on. Everton have a home record of W6 D3 L5 this season and their form there recently hasn’t been great. They are W1 L3 in their last four home games. Everton have taken just one point at home this season from five games against teams currently in the top half of the table. That’s been a really poor return by them. In total Everton have scored 21 and have conceded 21 goals at Goodison Park this season.
The Toffees have a clean sheet in 29% of home games this season. They have conceded a total of five goals in their last two home games, defeat against Wolves and Manchester City. It has been far from convincing from them and all of their wins, home and away have only been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Toffees have opened the scoring in eight of their league home games this season. Will they have enough to challenge the Reds?
Liverpool were 1-0 winners in the first Merseyside derby this season
Everton’s last league win over Liverpool was in 2009
Liverpool have won three of their last four EPL home games against Everton (D1)
Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings at Anfield
The Reds produced a fine home performance in midweek as they beat Watford 5-0. That was a good response from them as their form has dropped lately. Liverpool are W2 D3 in their last five games now. Overall their record away from home this season’s W9 D4 L1 and they are undefeated in three on their travels. Liverpool have only drawn their last two out on the road though, limp performances against West Ham and Manchester United.

Everton have been totally unreliable against the better sides in the division this season. Liverpool looked back to their best in midweek and they are value to go and get the win at Goodison Park. Liverpool to win.

So again it didn’t quite happen for Liverpool as their attack was nullified very well by Manchester United at Old Trafford on the weekend in a 0-0 draw. That leaves Liverpool with a W1 D3 record in their last four Premier League fixtures. Their form at Anfield this season reads W11 D2 L0 so that is a huge positive for them. Liverpool did also bank a comfortable home win in their last Premier League home fixture as they beat Bournemouth 3-0. Liverpool have scored at least three goals in three of their last four League home games.
Overall this season Liverpool have averaged 2.7 goals per home game and their defence has only shipped seven. 46% of Liverpool’s home games in the top flight this term have gone over 2.5 goals. They have earned a clean sheet in 62% of home fixtures. They are currently on a nine-match scoring streak at Anfield in the Premier League and they have also been leading at the halftime break in eight of their fixtures at Anfield. Liverpool have opened the scoring in all but three of their Premier League home games this season. They have been dropping points recently and need a big home performance to steady the ship a little bit.
The Reds earned a 3-0 win at Watford earlier this season
Liverpool are unbeaten in six against the Hornets
Liverpool are on a five-match home winning streak against Watford
Both teams have scored in two of the last eleven meetings
Watford have a pretty solid and stable recently and they took a big 5-1 victory away at Cardiff last Friday. That makes it back-to-back League wins for the Hornets. Watford have actually only suffered one defeat in their last 10 Premier League games now. That low defeat happened on a trip to Tottenham at the end of January, the Hornets losing 2-1. Watford have played two away games at sides currently sat in the top four. They lost both of them at Arsenal and Tottenham. In fact, Watford have played seven games against current top six sides and have lost all but one of them.
Watford’s overall away form in the Premier League this season is W5 D5 L4. The recent defeat they suffered out at Tottenham is their only away loss in their last seven on the road. So it has been pretty good stuff from them. Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Watford have averaged 1.6 goals per away game, while they have taken a clean sheet in 21% of their road fixtures. Starring in front of goal for them on the weekend at Cardiff was Gerard Deulofeu who got himself a hat-trick, while Troy Deeney weighed in with a brace. Watford have opened the scoring in seven of their 14 away games.
Watford are a little bit of a handful at the moment because they are hard to beat. Liverpool have not quite been firing on all cylinders lately, but their home form does look as if it will be enough to get them the three points. As Liverpool’s home defence has been so good, the Reds to win to nil does still offer appeal

Man Utd 19/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 6:57 p.m.)
What a match this should be. Manchester United had no way of matching up to Liverpool earlier this season when they went to Anfield and suffered a 3-1 defeat. However, the Red Devils have won eight of their last nine league games (D1). So it has been a very powerful run of form from them. Their home form is nothing to be sneezed at.
They have won four of their last five on home soil and remain unbeaten at Old Trafford in the league since their defeat against Tottenham back at the end of August. Overall this season Manchester United have a W7 D4 L1 home record in the top flight.
They have however struggled in their bigger league games this season. Home and away they have played seven games against sides currently sat in the top seven. From that United have a W1 D3 L3 record. So this is going to be a big test for them. But United are scoring well and they have averaged just over two goals per home game this season.
53% of league games at Old Trafford have ended up over 2.5 goals. Surprisingly the Red Devils are still stuck on just one home clean sheet all season and they haven’t earned one in any of their last six at Old Trafford. Home and away the Red Devils have scored in each of their last 13 Premier League fixtures. They have scored at least two in each of their last six on home soil.
Liverpool earned a 3-1 home win over Manchester United earlier this season
The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last four EPL home games against the Reds (W3 D1)
Six of the last eight meetings in all competitions have ended under 2.5 goals
Four of the last six meetings have ended in a draw (all competitions)
Liverpool have drawn two of their last three Premier League games (W1). In their last six, they are W3 D2 L1 so it hasn’t been quite as strong form during 2019. They have dropped more league points in their last six games than they did from the start of the season through to the end of December.
Their current form has seen them go W1 D1 L1 which snapped a strong four-match winning streak that they were on away from home. Liverpool have scored 24 goals on their travels at an average of 1.8 per game. Their defence has been magnificent having conceded just eight in their 13 road fixtures.
Liverpool have taken a clean sheet in 46% of their away fixtures. Overall this season Liverpool hold a W9 D3 L1 record in the Premier League. The Reds have scored in all 13 away games this season. Home and away combined they have scored in each of their last 18 fixtures. The Reds have scored exactly one goal in each of their three most recent away games.
Last time out on the road, the Reds were frustrated in a 1-1 draw at West Ham. Liverpool have scored two-thirds of their away goals this season in the second half of fixtures. They have opened the scoring in all but three of their road games. Sadio Mane is on a four-match scoring streak in the league for them.
Liverpool have found the going just a little bit tougher the since the turn of the New Year. They are facing a very confident Manchester United side here. Both enjoy a bit of counter-attacking football and we don’t expect there to be much between them. However, the extra scoring edge that the Red Devils have at the moment could tip this in their favour. Home win.

Liverpool have just had a few wobbles with their form. It is just two victories in their last five league games now. Can they rediscover their winning touch as they host Bournemouth on the weekend? The Cherries had their little upturn in form snapped with a defeat at Cardiff last weekend. Read our Liverpool v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Are Liverpool getting title nerves again? After such a fantastic season, since the turn of the new year, Liverpool have played out a W2 D2 L1 record. Not the worst record out there but it has been certainly a drop-off by their high standards season. Liverpool have actually earned just one clean sheet in their last six league games, home and away combined. On Monday night they looked a shadow of themselves in a 1-1 draw out at West Ham. That was the same scoreline when they faced Leicester in their previous match.
Liverpool have a W10 D2 home record in the Premier League this season so really they cannot be faulted. There draw against Leicester in their last home game snapped a seven-match winning streak they were on in the EPL at Anfield. Liverpool have scored 32 home goals this season, conceding just seven. They have however conceded in each of their last three home games. 50% of Liverpool’s home games this term have ended up over 3.5 goals. Liverpool have earned a clean sheet overall in 58% of league home fixtures. Sadio Mane is on a three-match scoring streak at home for Liverpool.
Liverpool ran out 4-0 winners at Bournemouth back at the start of December
Liverpool are on a three-match winning streak (to nil) against the Cherries
Bournemouth have conceded 16 goals in their last five games against Liverpool
The Cherries hold just a W1 D3 L10 record against Liverpool from all previous meetings
Bournemouth are clearly one of those teams which you just never know quite what you are going to get from them. They have been going really well on home soil, including giving Chelsea a right old hammering on the South coast. But then after that big win against the Blues, Bournemouth hit the road and lost 2-0 at the relegation-threatened Cardiff. Bournemouth are currently on a seven-match losing streak on their travels. Despite them scoring well at home Bournemouth have managed just one goal in their last five games out on the road in the top flight.
Overall this season Bournemouth’s away record reads W3 L9 from their 12 played. So they are certainly vulnerable, to say the least. Bournemouth have conceded at an average of over two goals per away game this season, with 42% of their road fixtures finishing over 3.5 goals. Bournemouth have failed to score in exactly half of their 12 away games this season. The Cherries have conceded at least two goals now in each of their last seven out on the road. Anfield may not be the greatest place to go when trying to snap a big away funk.
Bournemouth have been really poor on the road this season, and they can be thankful for their great home form. Liverpool have had a few wobbles but there should be more than enough gaps in the Bournemouth back line for them to expose. But as Liverpool have been a little shaky at the back lately, it may be worth considering both teams to score.
