2017-18 EPL: Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview

EPL Liverpool vs ChelseaThe blockbuster clash of English Premier League this weekend will feature Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool taking on Antonio Conte’s defending Champions Chelsea at the Anfield on Saturday, November 25. With both sides desperate not to lose, this fixture promises to be exciting and full of entertainment.

Season so far

Liverpool’s season has been full of defensive frailties, and the same reared its ugly head midweek against Sevilla when Liverpool threw away a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3. They are unbeaten in five matches but are 12-points behind leaders Manchester City with 22 points and in fifth place. What should help Klopp is their home form which saw them win four and draw two games in the Premier League so far. Is that enough to lead them to a win and establish their top-four credentials against Chelsea?

Chelsea had a mixed start to the season and coupled with Manchester City’s exceptional start, the Blues were quickly out of the title race. They are now third in the League table with 25 points. Two consecutive 4-0 wins (over West Brom in the Premier League and Qarabag in the Champions League) puts them in prime form for the encounter. Their Premier League form away from home is near-impeccable as they have won five out of six matches. They are still nine points behind Manchester City, but it is second place that they are after right now.

Key Stats and battles

In the last six meetings between these sides, Liverpool have won two, drawn three, and lost just one. But, it is Chelsea who have a better record on their visits to Anfield staying undefeated in their last five Premier League visits (W2, D3) since their 1-4 loss in May 2012.

Liverpool’s home record in their last 33 games at Anfield reads W20, D11, L2 but an interesting fact is that in this fixture, the home side failed to win.

Prediction

Chelsea look good to continue their good run in the Premier League, but Liverpool under Klopp have been dominant at home against top sides. Back the Reds to win the match at odds of $2.15 at William Hill.

Mohammed Salah is in great scoring form and with 12 goals is the top scorer in the Premier League. Back him to find the net at any time in the game at odds of $2.60 at William Hill.

Defensively, both sides have a number of loose ends to tie which means we should see goals at both ends. You can back both teams to score at odds of $1.57 at William Hill.
