Big Game Focus: Chelsea v Liverpool


Both Chelsea and Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways after they both lost their Champions League openers. The two clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. The visitors have won all their five Premier League games this season while Chelsea secured a huge win last time out. Here’s the Big Game Focus. Bet on the Premier League here. 

Chelsea top-four credentials will be put to test on Sunday when they welcome league leaders Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. The Blues recorded a huge 5-2 away win at Wolves last weekend but were defeated in the Champions League on Tuesday by Valencia. Can Frank Lampard’s team inflict defeat on an in-form Liverpool?

Liverpool, meanwhile, are five points clear at the top of the table after just five games. The Reds have won a staggering 14 consecutive matches in the league and will be looking to extend their record. Jurgen Klopp’s men have already found the net 15 times in the league this season and given how Chelsea’s defence has performed in their five games, they could be in for a long evening.

Betting preview

Liverpool have won their last 14 Premier League matches in a row, a run that started in March. Chelsea have won just three of their last ten games in the league and are winless in their two home games this season. Therefore, you can back an Away Win at odds of 1.95. 

The visitors have scored at least two goals in each of their last 14 Premier League games. Chelsea, meanwhile, have conceded at least two goals in four of their five league games this season. The Reds have kept just one clean sheet in seven games in all competitions this season. For that reason, you can back Both Teams to Score at odds of 1.50. 

Mohamed Salah has scored five goals in nine appearances against Chelsea. The Egyptian has scored four goals in seven appearances in all competitions this term. Odds of 2.25 for Mohamed Salah as Anytime Goalscorer are attractive.
