The biggest game this week in the English Premier League is to take place at Anfield as Liverpool play host to their rivals Chelsea. Both teams are real title contenders and this is set to be one of the best games this year.

Liverpool has had a bad run of form and their loss to Wolves a few days ago did not go down well with the fans. That being said, the Premier League is back and this will mean a lot more to the Anfield faithful and a win over Chelsea will surely get the crowd going again. This team has a lot of talent but their defense has been a problem all season and with the likes of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard visiting, it could make things really hard for them.

Chelsea on the other hand are on red hot form and they will want to keep winning knowing that the title is now theirs to lose. This team has a great formation and their superstars are performing which is making Antonio Conte look like a genius. I think this will continue this week as the Chelsea attack will take advantage of a weak Liverpool defense.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on betting on Chelsea to win outright. Chelsea are the better team and Liverpool are tired after playing two cup games and by losing both of them, the Reds are also looking disheartened. Chelsea on the other hand are much fresher and this should give them the edge come gameday. In addition to that bet, betting on the under 2.5 goals is also a good bet since these high profile matches generally are not high scoring.

 

Pick:
Chelsea
