Liverpool Form & Team News

Liverpool are coming into this fixture with two back to back wins against Norwich City and Burnley. They first defeated Norwich City 0-3 on the road and then backed it up with a perfect 2-0 home win against Burnley. They are currently placed at the top of the table along with West Ham United, Chelsea, Brighton and Tottenham. They have a healthy positive goal difference of five as they have scored five goals and conceded none. Liverpool are in good shape as they have just lost one match in the last eight matches that they have played.

Diogo Jota is the team’s leading goal scorer with two goals under his belt. And they have also got good contributions from their three strikers as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have netted one goal each. Mohamed Salah is leading that assists list with two assists to his name. Jurgen Klopp might start the same XI that defeated Burnley over the weekend. They just have three players on that injury list including James Milner, Fabinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain but there is a chance that they could play. 

Chelsea Form & Team News

Chelsea are on the back of two match winning streak against Crystal Palace and Arsenal. And they are also placed at the top of the table along with four other teams. A goal difference of five has placed them in the second position. They have scored five goals so far and have kept a clean sheet in both the matches that they played. They are in some exceptional form as they haven’t lost a single match in their last seven matches across competitions and they will be looking to carry that momentum into this match as well.

So far they had five different goal scoring sources with Marcos Alonso, Christian Pulisic, Trevoh Chalobah, Romelu Lukaku and Reece James. Romelu Lukaku came to Chelsea to break the goalless drought with the Blues and he did that in some style against Arsenal. Thomas Tuchel might start Ngolo Kante as the Frenchman has recovered from his injury. But Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are still sidelined with Covid and are unavailable for selection against Liverpool.

Tipster’s Angle

Whenever Liverpool played against Chelsea, it always has been an exciting contest. This is expected to be nothing less than that. The home team usually have done well in this fixture. Apart from that, these two teams are in some good scoring form and a goal-fest could be expected.

Tip 1: Total Goals Over 2.5

In the last five matches that Liverpool has played, over 2.5 goals were scored in three of those matches. Also, two of the last four matches that Liverpool have played in the Premier League had over 2.5 goals scored in them. In the last ten matches that Chelsea has played, over 2.5 goals were scored in six of those matches. In the last five head to head matches, a total of 16 goals were scored at an average of over three goals per match and over 2.5 goals were scored in two of those matches. So, by considering these facts, we can clearly say that over 2.5 goals will be scored. And 2.02 odds are available for the over 2.5 goals according to the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Both Teams To Score

In the last six head to head matches, both teams managed to find the back of the net in three of those matches. In two of the last three head to head matches hosted by Liverpool, both teams scored at least a goal. Liverpool have managed to score a goal in all of the last ten matches that they have played across competitions. While Chelsea have scored in nine of the last ten matches that they have played. Liverpool had five of their last ten matches where both teams scored. And Chelsea had both teams scoring in six of their last ten matches. With the likes of Mohamed Salah, Romelu Lukaku, Sadio Mane and Kai Havertz taking the field, goals at both ends are expected. And odds of 1.80 are available for the same at the Casumo sportsbook.


This is a pretty even contest which might end in a draw as both teams are in fine form in both attack and defense. It wouldn’t be surprising if it ends as a 0-0 draw. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above:
