Liverpool -164 / Chelsea +450 / Draw +275
Liverpool are set to host Chelsea at Anfield for a massive game in the English Premier League. Liverpool must win to keep up the fight with Manchester City while Chelsea must win to keep up the fight for the top 4.
Liverpool played midweek in the UEFA Champions League where the Reds won 2-0 at home against Porto. It was a dominant performance by Liverpool as the team controlled 65% of the possession and had 15 shots. Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino were the two goals scorers for Liverpool during the win. Liverpool have been in exceptional form as the team has not lost any points since the start of March when they drew with Everton. The Reds look determined to win and are in good form which makes them a tough prospect for any opposition.
On the other side of the coin, Chelsea won their previous match which was away from home in the UEFA Europa League. The Blues controlled the majority of the ball but only scored in the 86th minute to secure the win. Chelsea are fighting with Arsenal and Manchester United for a spot in the Champions League next season. Eden Hazard has been the sole star player for Chelsea this season and the Belgian striker will have to be at his best if the team wishes to compete with Liverpool.
Chelsea and Liverpool met earlier in the season in a match that was played at Stamford Bridge in West London. The match was well competed by Chelsea and Liverpool with the end result being a 1-1 draw.
As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this match. Over the past few months, Liverpool have been playing in a level above Chelsea. Liverpool are at home so they have another advantage over Chelsea. With all that in mind, I see Liverpool getting 3 points from this match.
