Chelsea vs Liverpool – Betting Tips & Predictions – 22-09

Last updated & checked: 10/08/2021

Chelsea, currently down in ninth place in the Premier League table, welcome top-placed Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday. The home side are looking for their first home win under the management of Frank Lampard. Mason Mount, Toni Rudiger, N’Golo Kante and Emerson are all rated as doubtful for the home side, though, as they are carrying injuries.

Liverpool will head into the game feeling confident, as they have lost only once in their last 44 Premier League matches, and are unbeaten in their last 22 league matches, an outstanding record that highlights the quality of Jurgen Klopp’s team. They are also under pressure to respond after Manchester City made a statement on Saturday by beating Watford 8-0.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Prediction: Blues 1-2 Reds

Our prediction for this game is that Liverpool will prevail in a tight and testing game, winning 2-1 in the end. Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Spanish outfit Valencia in the Champions League in midweek, and we suspect that that defeat may have had a slightly depressing effect on Lampard’s squad. But Klopp’s Reds were beaten themselves in midweek away in Italy, at Napoli in the Champions League. Their domestic form has been so good, however, that it is hard to see Liverpool stuttering too much in west London on Sunday. Chelsea may take the lead, but the Reds will prevail in the end.

Our recommended tip: Liverpool from behind

Our featured tip for this game comes from Coral, who are offering tempting odds of 8/1 on Liverpool winning the game by coming from behind. This bet fits with our prediction of how the game will go, as we suspect that Chelsea may well take an early lead. The Reds have too much attacking power to be behind for too long, though, and we think that they will win the game pretty comfortably in the end, especially given Chelsea’s home form in the league so far this season. Odds of 8/1 also offer really good value to punters.

Players to watch: Tammy Abraham & Mohamed Salah

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has scored at least two goals in his last three Premier League appearances, making him a real danger man for the Blues.

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has begun the 2019/20 season in as sharp form as ever, netting four times in the Premier League already. He has also weighed in with two assists and has created two big chances for his team mates too. He has hit 16 shots on goal, seven of which have been on target. He has missed three big chances and struck the woodwork with shots on one occasion.
