Liverpool v Chelsea Betting Tips
With the Champions League out of the way, Jurgen Klopp will be rather glad to move on and focus his attention on the huge Premier League clash against Chelsea at the weekend.
Both featured in the week, Chelsea cruising past Qarabag, while Liverpool let a three goal lead slip to draw 3-3.
Needless to say that’s led to plenty of questioning and all eyes will be on the likes of Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan come Saturday evening.
What the bookmakers are saying
Liverpool are just three points behind Chelsea in the Premier League and go into the 5.30pm fixture as favourites with Ladbrokes at 11/10.
That could be down to Liverpool’s frightening form going forward. The Reds have scored two per game on average in the league so far, with Roberto Firmino putting in a fine performance midweek.
Firmino to score first v Chelsea could be a sound bet, while those backing the Reds would be foolish not to consider a Mohamed Salah to score and Liverpool to win bet at 13/5.
Chelsea have gone unbeaten in November so far, bagging nine in three games and not conceding a goal.
With Liverpool’s leaky defence having conceded the second most goals inside the top six, you’d expect Chelsea to fancy a goal or two.
They kept Manchester United quite at Old Trafford at the start of the month and a 1-0 win could be good value for them again at 12/1.
The Chelsea to beat Liverpool odds are at a generous 23/10 given the midweek struggles of Klopp’s men, and it is where we’d probably put our money.
Liverpool v Chelsea Head-to-Head
Conte rested players in midweek against Qarabag and will be hoping to beat Liverpool with the Blues for the first time.
Conte picked up a draw in their last meeting but lost in his first game at home back in September 2016.
The Champions haven’t beaten Liverpool in the last five attempts now, a run stretching back to January 2015, while the last time they beat them at Anfield was 2014.
That tie finished 2-1 to Chelsea, with the same result priced at 10/1 this time around.
One thing is for sure, if Conte doesn’t turn around the club’s bad fortune against Liverpool of late, it could see their Premier League title odds drop as the two Manchester clubs and Spurs take on relatively easy opposition.
Liverpool’s top four hopes will also be vastly improved should they claim the win and join Chelsea level on points.
