Liverpool vs Chelsea Betting Odds and Free Bet Offers

Thursday’s match between Liverpool and Chelsea was always going to be billed as a fascinating encounter between Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.

The two share a remarkably similar path having both managed Borussia Dortmund after FSV Mainz but Tuchel said in a pre-match press conference that the pair aren’t actually as close as many believe.

There is a huge amount of respect between the two and they’ll both tell their teams to respect the threat of their opposition so don’t be surprised if the big midweek match ends in a draw at 13/5 with bet365*.

Neutrals who are looking forward to some quality action this week will be hoping that Chelsea provide a lot more entertainment than in the match against Man Utd.

The double pivot of N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic did a very good job of snuffing out Man Utd’s threat but Chelsea lacked a creative spark despite their vast array of attacking talent.

Chelsea found it hard to overcome the high Man Utd press on Sunday, seemingly because they weren’t expecting it.

Tuchel will certainly be preparing his players to deal with a high press against Liverpool and will likely pick pacey players in forward positions to help stretch the play.

The decision to bench Timo Werner was made in part to keep him fresh for the trip to Anfield and he may well be able to capitalise on a fast Chelsea attack by scoring at 21/10 with 888sport.

Key Battle to Look Out For

Klopp has fewer decisions to make in terms of his team selection for Thursday’s match simply because he has so many players still out injured.

It was great to see the return of Naby Keita in the win over Sheffield Utd but Liverpool are still operating with a very inexperienced defence (at least at this level).

Liverpool did a very good job of keeping a clean sheet at Bramall Lane but Chelsea are a different proposition so the Reds will likely have to score to earn even a point.

Therefore, consider backing the 1-1 correct score at 13/2 with bet365*.
