Chelsea play Liverpool for the second time this week, as their attention now shifts to their top of the table clash in the Premier League. The match kicks off at 5:30pm local time, and has been labelled the biggest game of the season so far, given that these two teams are the real serious contenders to Manchester City’s title.

Home Team: Chelsea

chelsea fc bet on footballChelsea had the success in the first meeting this week, coming from behind at Anfield to win 2-1. Eden Hazard scored a quite sumptuous goal in the closing stages, taking on three or four players, before providing a lambasting finish into the net. Chelsea therefore progressed to next round of the Carabao cup meaning they are still competing on all fronts.

The Blues would have been slightly disappointed with their performance at West Ham last week though, as they dominated possession but were unable to break down a well organised defence, as they dropped their first two points of the season. A win here would take themselves above Liverpool, and make a real statement regarding their title chances.

Away Team: Liverpool

LIVERPOOL FC BETTING.FOOTBALLLiverpool had won their first seven league games of the season, and that type of form had not happened for over 20 years. This season, there is a clear intent from Liverpool, who are bidding to end a barren run of 28 years without a league title.

Their 100% start to the Premier League season has not gone unnoticed, and a win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday would surely make all football fans and pundits actually believe that this year, may be ‘Liverpool’s year’.

Undeniably, Liverpool will be disappointed having lost their winning record this season at Anfield to Chelsea of all teams, and for the first time this season they will have to endure some feeling of dissatisfaction. The squads were rotated on Wednesday, and the likes of Mohammed Salah, Virgil van Dyke and Roberto Firmino will return for their crunch clash on Saturday.

Head to Head

With Chelsea winning the match on Wednesday, they have now gone four matches undefeated against Liverpool, and winning the last two in all competitions.

Liverpool had won back to back matches at Stamford Bridge in 2015 and 2016, but incredibly those are the only two wins against Chelsea in their last 16 meetings, meaning Chelsea have certainly had the upper hand. These two sides have often cancelled each other out on several occasions too, as in the last 12 Premier League meetings, it has been a draw on six occasions.

In the most recent encounter at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea edged out Liverpool 1-0 in May, as they attempted to keep their Champions League hopes still alive, but as we all know, they did fail on bridging that gap.

Our Chelsea vs Liverpool Predictions and Betting Tips

Liverpool are slight favourites to win at Stamford Bridge as they are at 11/8 to get the three points on Saturday. Chelsea are at 9/5 to get a win, whilst a draw is priced at 13/5.

With Liverpool only beating Chelsea twice in the last 16 meetings, the odds do flatter the visiting team. The bookmakers are suggesting that with the best defence and attack available, Liverpool will be able to continue their good form and pick up another vital victory in their Premier League campaign.

However, I think that this will be a score draw, so betting on a 1-1 draw, at 6/1, would be the way I would go. Eden Hazard is at 11/2 to get the first goal, but the favourite is Mo Salah, who is at 4/1 to get the first goal.

Hazard is the player more in form, and I would back him on this occasion to continue where he left off against Liverpool on Wednesday night.
