Liverpool v Chelsea UEFA Super Cup Preview, 14th August 8.00pm

It is time for the annual showcase match between the current European Champions and Europa League winners. For the first time ever the UEFA Super Cup will feature two English teams, with last season’s Champions League winners Liverpool being the strong favourites to collect more silverware. Can Frank Lampard put his first piece of silverware in the cabinet though as Chelsea boss? Read our Liverpool v Chelsea betting tips for more.

Liverpool News and Form

Considering the opposition that Liverpool had to go through on their way to Champions League success last season, it was a remarkable campaign. They were drawn against PSG, Napoli and Red Star in the group stage and they weren’t without their troubles there either. But they got through and then found Bayern Munich standing in their way in the round of sixteen. One big away night in the second leg saw the Reds make progress.

After an easier tie in the quarter-finals against Porto, Liverpool found themselves paired up against Barcelona in the semis. After a 3-0 loss in Spain in the first leg, Liverpool looked down and out. Not so though, as they turned on one of the most remarkable shows that Anfield has seen in the Champions League. The Reds produced a 4-0 second-leg win over the Catalans. Then it was fellow Premier League side Spurs in the Final. Liverpool won 2-0 to celebrate their sixth European Cup/Champions League title.

They played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester City in Community Shield to kick their new season off, losing in a penalty shoot-out. Then they smashed four goals past the newly promoted Norwich in their opening Premier League game last Friday. Mo Salah and Roberto Firmono started that game against Norwich, with Sadio Mane putting in a second-half performance. They boast the scoring power to do some damage

Salah is the first goalscorer favourite at 10/3* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 12th, 2019 at 2:24 p.m.). This is the sixth Super Cup for Liverpool with three wins from their five previous appearances. Their most recent title was in 2005 when they beat CSKA Moscow after extra time. Liverpool have lost keeper Alisson to injury, but given that the impressive scoring that they have in their ranks, they the favourites with the bookmakers.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues had a fairly sedate start to their successful Europa League campaign last season. They posted W5 D1 record in the group stage, as the Londoners were easily a cut above the rest of the opposition without ever needing to field the strongest team or find top gear. They then eased past Malmo 5-1 on aggregate in the round of 32. They were expected to get a little bit of a tougher test from Dynamo Kyiv in the round of sixteen, but Chelsea crushed their opponents 8-0 on aggregate.

Chelsea, then managed by Mauricio Sarri took a 5-3 aggregate win over Slavia Prague, the second leg being a seven-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge. Then Chelsea were pushed to their limits by Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-finals. Both legs ended 1-1 and with the extra time not providing a winner, it was down to a penalty shootout which Chelsea won 4-3. That put them through to the final to face Arsenal, but it was a one-sided match up with Chelsea winning 4-1, Eden Hazard getting two goals in his last game in a Chelsea shirt.

That was Chelsea’s second Europa League title from two campaigns. Impressive stuff. Times have changed over the summer with new boss Frank Lampard trying to pick up the pieces at the club with transfer ban hanging over them until next summer. The Blues took a 4-0 hammering at Old Trafford on Sunday against Manchester United in their opening EPL game. While Chelesa weren’t too bad going forward, they were wide open in defence and that will be a concern in facing Liverpool’s deadly attack. Do they go for damage limitation or try to stick to their guns of playing an open game? Early pressure for Lampard.

Chelsea were picked off time and time again by Manchester United’s counter-attacks on the weekend. Liverpool’s attack is far more clinical than that of the Red Devils. So that can only lead us to the conclusion that this is going to be a big European night of Liverpool in Istanbul. Where have we heard that before?

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.

Liverpool News and Form

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.

Chelsea News and Form

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 v Chelsea EFL Cup Preview, 26th September 7.45pm

This is the tie of the round in the EFL Cup as it is a heavyweight clash between two of the top sides in the country. Chelsea makes the difficult trip up north to take on Liverpool and with both of these defending unbeaten records this season, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Chelsea 13/5

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 23rd, 2018 at 10:34 p.m.)


Liverpool News and Form

The Reds have won every game that they have played this season across all competitions and are going along with some rich confidence. It was a good week for them, beating PSG in the Champions League and then hammering Southampton at Anfield in the Premier League on the weekend. They have scored at least two goals in all but one of their games played this season. Their form at Anfield is four wins from four and they have returned eleven goals in their four home games. They have taken a clean sheet in three of their four home wins and Liverpool to win to nil is at 11/4 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:34 pm). We aren’t likely to see the strongest Liverpool starting lineup in this one. Under 2.5 goals is at 23/20 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:34 pm).

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea dropped their first points of the new Premier League season on the weekend as they were held to a 0-0 draw against West Ham in a London derby. Chelsea will host Liverpool in the Premier League next weekend so they aren’t likely to show too strong of a hand in this one. The Blues have scored at least two goals in all but two of their games this season, those two games coming over the last week in a 1-0 win at PAOK in the Champions League and then the draw with West Ham. With them not being at full strength it is a little hard to see where the goals are going to come from for them because they are a little short in that department. We are actually going to look at both teams NOT to score at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:34 pm) for the tie.

Who will win – Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

We are going with the home win in this one as Liverpool do have the advantage of having the crowd behind them. This is likely going to be a battle of depth of the respective squads more than anything else. We see Liverpool just having the advantage in terms of scoring threat. Home win.

Liverpool v Chelsea Prediction & Betting Tips, 25th November 2017

Liverpool

Liverpool v Chelsea Premier League Preview, 25th November 3.00pm

With both Chelsea and Liverpool having carried recent positive form, this should be a great competitive fixture at Anfield. Liverpool are trailing the Blues by three points inside the top six so they have a bit of catching up to do. Will they be able to make the most of home advantage in this one? Chelsea have produced some great away from this season though and will be confident of taking an important win after handling themselves in big games this season. Liverpool are the 6/5 favourites to take the win, with Chelsea at 11/5 and the draw at 12/5.

Liverpool News and Form

After winning just one of six league games, Liverpool have responded in fine fashion to put a three match winning streak together. They have scored at least three goals in each of their wins over Huddersfield, West Ham and Southampton, so while the wins have come, they haven’t been against the stiffest opposition in the league. They have already lost against Man City and Tottenham while being held to a draw against Manchester United in bigger games. Their only win against a top six side so far came in a big 4-0 victory over Arsenal. Overall this season they have gone W4 D2 at home in their six game and have landed back to back 3-0 wins there. The 1-1 correct score at bet365 is the shortest priced option in the market though at 6/1. That has been the result in each of the last three between these at Anfield. The Reds are averaging exactly two goals per game this season at home and all four of their home victories have been to nil as well. Mohamed Salah continued his great scoring form with a brace on the weekend and that’s four in his last two league games from the former Chelsea man. Salah is a 3/2 anytime goalscorer option.

Chelsea News and Form

After back to back league losses against Man City and Crystal Palace, Chelsea have rolled out a four match winning streak, including a good 1-0 victory over Manchester United. That is the clean sheets in a row they have taken now heading into this one and even though at times they haven’t looked defensively strong, they have six clean sheets for the season. A Chelsea clean sheet is a price of 7/2 for the game and they do have three in their last four away games. Chelsea have produced a good W5 L1 record out on the road this season in the Premier League, scoring fourteen goals and have conceded just the four on their travels. Games involving Chelsea away have averaged three goals per game this season in the top flight. 83% of their away games have seen at least two goals. Alvaro Morata is up to eight goals for the season and he is the 9/2 bet365 first goalscorer favourite for the match. Between them, Morata and Eden Hazard have netted five of Chelsea’s last six league goals. Three of Chelsea’s way wins in the league this season have been by just the one goal margin.

Liverpool v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last five Premier League visits to Anfield (W2 D3) so have reason to be positive there on the weekend really. Each of the last four between these in all competitions at Anfield have ended in a 1-1 draw so there is a pretty decent trend to ride. The Blues wouldn’t be unhappy with a draw you would imagine in the fixture.

Who will win – Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

The recent sequence of draws between these two at Anfield can’t be ignored and therefore the 1-1 draw does has some appeal. You have two sides who are in good, confident form at the moment and Chelsea have handled themselves well enough away from home to pick up a point in this one.

Liverpool v Chelsea Prediction & Betting Tips – 31st January 2017

Liverpool

Liverpool v Chelsea Premier League, 31st January 8.00pm

A huge clash as the Premier League returns to action after the FA Cup weekend. This is a game of big importance at the top of the table as Chelsea can extend their lead over the Reds by a massive twelve points if they can land the win at Anfield. Liverpool who suffered a shock FA Cup exit on the weekend have hit the skids a bit and are winless in their last three Premier League games. Can they return themselves to form with a massive boost by taking down the Premier League leaders? Liverpool are 29/20 to take the win, with Chelsea at 7/4 and the draw at 12/5.

Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Tips

What a game this should be and Liverpool are looking the more desperate of the two at the moment. The Reds have gone D2 L1 in their last three Premier League games and have gone just W1 D3 L4 in their last eight across all competitions. So a rough time of things they are having at the moment and they just aren’t producing in front of goal like they were from the start of the season through to the end of December. Liverpool have only managed to score more than one goal in one of their last seven games now and they have failed to score in three of those seven. At home this season in the Premier League, Liverpool have gone W7 D2 L1 and they suffered their first league defeat at Anfield against Swansea in their top flight home fixture.

Both teams to score in the match at Bet365 returns a price of 4/5 while going under 2.5 goals in on the match up is a quote of 3/4. Four of the last six between these two have gone under the mark and three of the last four between them at Anfield in all competitions have gone under the goal line. Liverpool did take a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season. Liverpool will be looking to defeat Chelsea both home and away in the same Premier League season for the first time since 2011-12. The Reds are winless in their last four at home against Chelsea in the Premier League though with a D2 L2 record in that sequence. Up in the correct score market there is a 1-1 option at a price of 6/1. Liverpool have picked up one point in the three Premier League games that Sadio Mané has missed this season (W0 D1 L2). Daniel Sturridge is their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option at 15/8.

Chelsea marched through easily to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a home win over Brentford on the weekend. The Blues are top of the league table by eight points over Arsenal heading into this one and they will go and face the Gunners in the Premier League next weekend. So this is an important game for Antonio Conte’s men not to lose. Chelsea have gone W15 L1 in their last sixteen league games and out on the road they are W7 L1 in their last eight away from home. That single loss in that sequence was a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham. Chelsea have kept six clean sheets in their last eight games out on the road which is very powerful. They are a price of 5/2 at Bet365 to take a clean sheet in this one.

So Diego Costa is back and looking just as much as Chelsea’s cause as he has been. He is 11/10 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. Costa has scored in 15 of his last 21 Premier League matches (16 goals in total) and of all players in the top flight to have made 20+ Premier League appearances, Diego Costa has scored in the highest proportion of games (55.4% – 41/74). Costa is 4/1 outright favourite in the Bet365 First Goalscorer market. He is going to be massively important for the Blues at Anfield. This is a huge week for Chelsea in their Premier League title march. If they beat both Liverpool and Arsenal this week then they can pretty much coast for the rest of the season.

Who will win – Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has only lost one of his previous 14 Premier League games against the other big six teams so have that record going for them. The Reds just aren’t firing at the moment and have suffered some major setbacks over the last week or so. Philippe Coutinho isn’t back up to full force yet and they are missing Sadio Mane hugely. Chelsea just keep trucking along but there has to be some conservatism from them here with Arsenal looming on the weekend. Look for the draw and the 1-1 correct score has massive appeal.

Liverpool

Liverpool v Chelsea Premier League, 11th May

Little riding on this one then apart from an outside chance of Liverpool finishing as high as fifth, but that would need a lot of other things to go their way. This is their final home game of the Premier League season then and while they go into the game just one place above Chelsea in the standing, the Blues are a massive ten points back of them. Chelsea were beaten at Sunderland on the weekend and could face another tricky away day. Liverpool are even money to take the win, with Chelsea at 14/5 and the Draw at 14/5 as well.

You can take 0-0 bore draw insurance on the game at online betting site Bet365.

Key Stats – Liverpool v Chelsea

Chelsea have conceded in all but one of their last ten league games against Liverpool

The Blues though are on a nine match scoring streak against the Reds

Liverpool ended a winless run of six against Chelsea in their win at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season

Liverpool have conceded two goals in each of their last three home games against the Blues

Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Tips

Even though there’s really nothing riding on this other than Liverpool trying to edge their way up the table a little bit more, it could be an exciting affair. The Reds went with an under strength side at home against Watford on the weekend and put a 2-0 win on the board. You would imagine that they will be at full strength for the visit of Chelsea. The Reds are now unbeaten in their last seven Premier League home matches (W4 D3) so are in good form on Merseyside. This game has the look of going over 2.5 goals and that can be backed at a price of 13/20 at online betting site Bet365. The Reds have failed to win any of their last four at home against the Blues in all competitions (D2 L2) so this could be up in the air. The Reds put a 3-1 win on the board at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season which snapped a six match winless streak against Chelsea, so maybe the tide has turned.

Liverpool haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine games in the league against Chelsea, so it’s probably worth backing both teams to score for a price of 4/7. To back that up, Liverpool have now netted at least one goal in each of their last 12 Premier League games, which is their best scoring streak in the Premier League since early 2014. They are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment and Daniel Sturridge is even money in the anytime goalscorer market, with the dynamic Roberto Firmino at 7/4. Look for an early goal at Anfield as the opening goal of the game has been scored in the opening 10 minutes in four of the last five Premier League meetings between Liverpool and Chelsea. The Reds have scored a total of twelve goals in their last four home games and they have posted a W8 D7 L3 record at home this season.

Chelsea have fallen out of form as they have won just one of their last five Premier League matches now. They have lost two of their last three out on the road, going down against Swansea and Sunderland. The Blues are leaking goals all over the place at the moment and this is the first season since 1996/97 that they have shipped 50 goals in a term. They have one clean sheet in their last 11 Premier League fixtures against Liverpool. Chelsea have netted in each of their last nine against Liverpool and Diego Costa has posted nine goals and five assists in his last 14 Premier League appearances. Costa is a 7/4 price to score at anytime at Anfield. This should be entertaining but the Blues just look out to get to the end of the season. They have won only 7 of their 18 away games this term.

Who will win – Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

This should be a win for Liverpool in a game which goes over 2.5 goals and both teams score. Neither are particularly strong at the back, but after a great stretch of form out on the road, things have fallen apart for Chelsea and the pace of Liverpool’s attack should unravel the visitors. Away win.

Two sides in decent form, both having won their last three games in all competitions.

Can Liverpool get enough on the board to defend in the second leg? Chelsea are 21/20 favourites for the win, with the draw at 12/5 and Liverpool at 5/2.

Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Tips

It’s down to the final four in the Capital One Cup and even though according to Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, that the club have rediscovered their identity, is it a strong enough one to stop the Blues? Liverpool are on a decent stretch of form, having gone unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions. They still haven’t been that impressive up front, but they are winning games, with victories in five of their last six played. A 2-0 win at Aston Villa on the weekend, stretched their form and confidence to take on Chelsea.

It’s the semi final stage of a cup, so you aren’t likely to see weakened starting elevens. For the Reds, Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli and Raheem Sterling are all around the 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market, which shows how much they are lacking a quality producer at the moment. The goalscorer markets are dominated by Chelsea players. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six matches played at Anfield, however four of those have been drawn, perhaps tempting punters to back parity on Tuesday night.

Chelsea though will get heavy backing after a majestic away performance in the Premier League on Saturday where they hammered Swansea 5-0. That was Chelsea at their best, something we haven’t seen too much of lately from them on the road. Chelsea fought back from a goal behind at Anfield in a league meeting earlier in the season to win 2-1, and are unbeaten now in their last three visits to the Merseyside club, winning their last two there. Diego Costa struck the winning goal in the league meeting and he is even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at Paddy Power.

Chelsea have now put up numbers of W8 D1 L1 in their last ten in all competitions. They have had their wobbles on the road, having won just three of their last seven outside of Stamford Bridge W3 D2 L2. They have lost but one of their last six home and away against Liverpool though and punters will seriously be thinking that they have sorted out their away day Blues after putting on a massive show of strength on the weekend.

Who will win – Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea’s solid defence and Liverpool’s late of tie up top will probably force this one under 2.5 goals. The visitors have the bigger firepower and can kill off this tie, but Liverpool are just showing enough form to dig in and grind out a draw. Shoot for parity in the first leg.

Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Tips

It is no secret that Liverpool this season have paled into comparison to what they were. What a difference Luis Suarez made, clearly. Liverpool just haven’t got themselves going at all this season and have picked up just two wins in their last six matches in all competitions. In the Premier League, the Reds have won just two of their last seven fixtures and took a blow on Tyneside last weekend when they lost 1-0 at the resurgent Newcastle. After a run of four Premier League wins over Chelsea, the Reds are now winless in their last four against the Blues and Chelsea took a crucial win at Anfield in this corresponding fixture last season, running Liverpool’s title hopes.

Liverpool have won just two of their five home games this season, just one of their last four. Still, on a more positive note, they have lost just one of their last five played in the English top flight, but have failed to score in their last two. Brendan Rodgers sent out a second string of players for their Champions League match at Real Madrid in the week, and they actually put on a decent show, only losing 1-0, largely thanks to Simon Mignolet and wasteful finishing by the Madrid forwards. But will they take confidence forward from that? The defeat did seem to raise some spirits at Anfield. Only 40% of LIverpool’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals, so probably worth looking under at a price of 5/6 as Chelsea’s priority will be being defensively strong.

Chelsea are now unbeaten in sixteen matches this season in all competition. The last game they lost was back in the Champions League semi finals last season against Atletico Madrid. They have Diego Costa back fit and he looks the best option in the game to back in the anytime goalscorer market, now with a couple of games under his belt since his return from injury. Costa is trading as even money favourite to score in the match. A much stronger option than the under fire Mario Balotelli at 2/1. Since Jose Mourinho came back to Chelsea, he has recorded a W6 D2 L0 record against last season’s top four. Pretty impressive.

Chelsea have just looked very efficient this season, but they have conceded in each of their last three matches. Their only blights to an otherwise perfect league season have been draws on the road in two big games against Man City and Man Utd. The Blues were leading in both though but couldn’t just hang on. Seven of Chelsea’s ten goals which they have conceded this season have been scored in the last 30 minutes.

Who will win – Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea go as favourites and positive value to back to get the job done. The Blues are 8/15 in a draw no bet. Liverpool have conceded in 80% of their home games this season, so the visitors should get chances. The Reds have just been lacking a punch in all departments this season, and the efficient Chelsea should be backed outright.

Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Tips:
So this should be it. Book three points here and the Reds should pretty much be Champions. However, should they slip up to a defeat, then Manchester City are still in with a chance of pouncing. It has been a remarkable run from Liverpool, winning their last eleven Premier League games on the bounce, going unbeaten in their last sixteen (W14 D2). That is the form of Champions and they keep coming through tests. Their last two matches in the league have ended with 3-2 wins, the big three points against Man City and then a victory at Carrow Road over Norwich last weekend. The Reds should have the upper hand here, with Chelsea in midweek Champions League action against Atletico Madrid.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last three home games against Chelsea in the Premier League (W2 D1). In this corresponding game from last season, a goal each from Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez earned them a 2-2 win. Suarez is trading at Even money in the anytime goalscorer market, with Daniel Sturridge at 6/4. As this is Liverpool at home, you would expect goals as they have averaged exactly three per game at Anfield. Over 2.5 goals is trading at a price of 4/7 with online betting site Paddy Power. While, if you fancy Chelsea’s defence to stand tall, then under is at 5/4. In twenty of their league games this season, Liverpool have scored three or more goals. The defence of the Reds hasn’t been great, as they have only kept one clean sheet in their last six, but will Chelsea’s limited attack be able to trouble them? 76% of Liverpool’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. It has been an immense winning streak from them, but Chelsea have the knack of sneaking points out of big games like this.

Jose Mourinho has already said that he wants to rest players for this one, so that he can focus on the Champions League next week. That’s a way to pre-empt an excuse if they lose on Sunday. The Blues will be without both Petr Cech and John Terry for the rest of the season, so big components of their defence are missing, the last thing you need on a visit to Anfield at the moment. Chelsea have lost two of their last three away games too, those 1-0 defeats at Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, but responded with a 1-0 win at Swansea. But their 2-1 shock home defeat against Sunderland last weekend saw their league title ambitions pass them by. This isn’t a game Chelsea want right now, and Samuel Eto’o, who could be held back for the Atletico game is shorted priced option for them at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Blues haven’t won any of their last three visits to Anfield, and while Mourinho has only lost one of eight previous meetings with Liverpool in the league, the outcome of an away win looks slim.

Prediction
While Chelsea can bore their way to low scoring draws, hard to see Liverpool giving up the golden chance of landing their first Premier League title here. They have everything going for them at the moment, including confidence and the Reds are just worth backing outright.

Liverpool v Chelsea Prediction 21st April 2013

Liverpool

Liverpool v Chelsea Betting PreviewOne of the big games of the weekend takes place at Anfield, as the return of former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez takes centre stage. His Chelsea side really need a win in the north west in order to keep up their challenge for a top three finish. However, their poor recent record in the Premier League against Liverpool puts that in jeopardy. Liverpool have been struggling to put wins on the board themselves in their last few games, but will no doubt have the extra incentive to take a win against the former boss.

Liverpool v Chelsea Recommended Bet:The chances of the Reds getting into Europe next season are looking pretty slim, with Brendan Rodgers men losing some valuable points recently. They have taken just one win of their last four in the Premier League, a narrow win over relegation threatened Aston Villa. A defeat against Southampton and back to back goalless draws against West Ham and Reading has seen them lose ground. As in the Reading game, the chances are being created but are not being taken and even Luis Suarez has gone 429 minutes without getting on the scoresheet. So while they arent playing bad, it is just that finishing power in the final third which is letting them down at times. A familiar story of late with the Reds.

Still, the Reds have lost just one of their last seven matches in the Premier League now, going down 3-1 at Southampton. Their lack of finishing prowess in the last two matches has really hurt them though and they go into the weekend a distant eight points out of fifth spot, so therelikelywont be enough time left in the season for them to muscle their way into Europe. It certainly wont happen if they lose this one. But they have gone well against Chelsea recently, winning four of their last five against the Blues, the other match a draw at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season. So the return of Liverpools most ever successful Premier League manager is on the cards, and Rafa Benitez needs to get one over on his former club if Chelsea are going to keep up a strong challenge for third place.

The Blues didnt really hit top gear against Fulham, but they ran out 3-0 winners at Craven Cottage, all goals coming from defence. They have had such a busy period lately that squad rotation has had to come into play and they will be back in Europe against on Thursday in the Europa League semi final. But they need three big points here, but a draw at the end of the day may not be a disaster. The Blues have won just one of their last six visits to Anfield though in the Premier League and they have failed to score in three of those six matches. Chelsea do have the second best defensive record in the league this season, and current form has seen them win four of their last five in the Premier League, with three clean sheets along the way. Frank Lampard remains vitally important for them, and the Blues have won 71% of games in which he has appeared this season, winning just one of eight without him.

This should be a close contest between the two, especially after the draw earlier in the season. It may not be worth looking beyond that, even though Chelsea have to hungry for the important points. Liverpool should be fresher and a 1 Goal Winning margin for them is trading at good value of 3/1 with online bookmaker Paddy Power.
