Liverpool vs Chelsea: Match Preview and Prediction
Liverpool vs Chelsea: Liverpool has six wins and one draw in their previous seven games in all competitions. Liverpool has won eight of its ten Premier League home games and drawn two. Darwin Nunez scored three goals in his last three Reds games.
When Liverpool play Chelsea in their first league encounter since Jurgen Klopp’s surprise announcement that he will leave at the end of the season on Wednesday, every Liverpool fan knows it will be an emotional night. Anfield will be full of enthusiasm as the Reds try to retain their strong record against a tough opponent.
This season, Liverpool has won eight and drawn two of its ten league games played at home. They lead the Premier League rankings by five points and are excelling across all tournaments. With a 1-1 draw away at Craven Cottage last week, Klopp’s team advanced to the Carabao Cup final despite a late scare from Fulham.
They swiftly got back to winning ways on Sunday afternoon in the FA Cup’s fourth round, crushing lower-division Norwich 5-2 with a delectable display. Chelsea faces a far more challenging assignment in this competition as they will have to replay their fourth-round match against Aston Villa, which ended in a scoreless tie at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.
Liverpool vs Chelsea: Betting Analysis
Neither Liverpool nor Chelsea have won in seven matches. In 89 home encounters versus Chelsea, Liverpool has 51 wins, 23 draws, and 15 losses. Not one of the last five H2H encounters between these sides has had three or more goals.
We think this matchup’s poor scoring streak is over. Liverpool has the second-best attacking record in the Premier League, with 47 goals in 21 rounds. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven matches in all competitions, including five against Norwich on Sunday.
They won eight and drew two of 10 Premier League games at Anfield this season. Meanwhile, Chelsea scored in eight of their last ten encounters in all competitions. Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 2.62 are our choices.
After leading Liverpool’s attack following Mohamed Salah’s Africa Cup of Nations departure, Darwin Nunez has been on fire. He scored three goals in his previous three Liverpool games, including a brace in the 4-0 Premier League triumph over Bournemouth. Darwin Nunez scoring anytime at 2.30 is our bet.
Who will win the match between Liverpool and Chelsea?
Chelsea will undoubtedly have difficulty scoring against a Liverpool squad that possesses all the necessary skills to dominate this game. By the end of the game, we’re picking Liverpool to win by a fairly comfortable margin.
