Chelsea vs Liverpool - Premier League Preview and Odds

September 29, 2018 17:30pm - Stamford Bridge

Premier League

Chelsea and Liverpool go head-to-head for the second time in a week after their League Cup clash at Anfield on Wednesday night. The Blues came out on top in that clash but will take nothing for granted as both sides field their strongest line-ups for this crucial Premier League encounter.

Maurizio Sarri`s men will hope their midweek victory will give them a psychological advantage heading into this clash. The Blues put out a strong side for the trip to Anfield but had to rely on star player, Eden Hazard - introduced after 56 minutes - to get the job done as the Blues impressive record away to Liverpool continued.

The Reds best performances against Chelsea in recent years have come at Stamford Bridge so they will enter this game without fear. Jurgen Klopp can be expected to make several changes with Salah, Firmino, Wijnaldum, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk and Henderson among those in line for a return.

Liverpool would probably have sacrificed the cup game if it meant winning this league clash, so Klopp will be going all out for revenge as his team looks to maintain their perfect start. Victory would cement the Red position as genuine title contenders.

But it won`t be easy as Chelsea are defending a 100% record at home in the league and have the wind of Wednesday night in their sails.

Betting odds and tips

Liverpool have won four, drawn two and lost two in their last eight Premier League matches at Samford Bridge, although their last league defeat away from home came here back in May (1-0).

Chelsea have only kept two clean sheets in their last eight league matches home soil and could struggle to shut out Liverpool`s dynamic front three. Likewise Liverpool could be exposed by the trickery of in-form Eden Hazard.

With all things considered a draw with Both Teams to Score looks a good bet.

You can back a Draw and Both Teams to Score at 3/1.
