Chelsea vs Liverpool - 9/29/18 English Premier League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Chelsea will host Liverpool in a top of the table clash at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had a disappointing result in their last Premier League match as they only managed to get a draw against West Ham United. Chelsea dominated that fixture with 72% of possession and 17 shots on goal but the with only 6 shots on target, the Blues failed to challenge the Hammers keeper enough. Chelsea are still unbeaten in the Premier League and have 16 points from 6 matches and they will know that win in this match will likely move them to top of the table. There is expected to be a huge turnout for this match as Chelsea and Liverpool have a long rivalry and the home fans should great an atmosphere that will give the home side a massive boost.

On the other side of the coin, Liverpool remains with a perfect record in the Premier League as they beat Southampton last weekend. This team is playing well but fatigue seems to be an issue as the side has already played 4 games in the last 2 weeks. This match is expected to be a challenge for Liverpool as they are playing a side who matches their talent on the pitch and has the home ground advantage.

Chelsea and Liverpool played earlier this week in the English League Cup where Chelsea won 2-1. While that win will give the Blues confidence, it is not a very good indication for this clash as neither side played their best players.

This is expected to be a great match as the likes of Salah, Mane, Firmino, Hazard, and Willian are all going to be on the pitch. In terms of a result, I am going to pick Chelsea to win at home. Both teams are playing well and are in good form but the home ground advantage should give Chelsea an edge and all three points.
