Liverpool currently sits at -115 favorites for this matchup while Chelsea is +320 as the underdog. The total currently sits at 2.5 goals with the over sitting at -145. 

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool currently sits in 9th place in the standings having picked up 28 points so far this season. On Tuesday, Liverpool faced off against the Wolves in the FA Cup and they were able to secure a 1-0 victory. Harvey Elliott scored in the 13th minute and they never looked back on the way to the victory. Arthur, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Virgil van Dijk are all still dealing with injuries and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. Fabio Carvalho is expected to be back, and signs seem to be pointing toward him moving back into the starting lineup in this game. This has been a disappointing season for Liverpool, and a loss here would put even more pressure on the team. 

Chelsea Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Chelsea who sits in 10th place in the standings having picked up 28 points. On Sunday, Chelsea faced off against Crystal Palace and they were able to secure a 1-0 victory. Kai Havertz scored in the 64th minute and that was the difference. Chelsea had 63 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Mykhailo Mudryk just joined the team but he could be moved into the starting lineup here quickly. Kai Havertz hasn’t been training with the team and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go in this game. Raheem Sterling is still dealing with injuries and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. 

Pick 

Liverpool’s defense was quite impressive against the Wolves, and they are going to continue that success here. Chelsea is still dealing with some key injuries and they aren’t going to get many quality scoring chances in this game. Look for Liverpool to score a couple of goals and they are going to get the job done. Back Liverpool on the money line to cash here.
