EPL Liverpool Chelsea Betting Tips

The 2016 English Premier League will resume rivalries this weekend with Chelsea and Liverpool fighting it out at the Stamford Bridge on Friday, September 16th. With both sides out of European action this season and having started brightly, there are hopes that this match could be a thriller.

Season so far

Chelsea stand second on the table after four games with an unbeaten run so far that fetched them 10 points. The Blues are not yet back to their best but under Antonio Conte they seem to have recovered some of the swagger that was missing last year.

Liverpool have maneuvered a tricky period of encounters and currently stay sixth with seven points. They have improved by leaps and bounds under Jurgen Klopp but inconsistent displays continue to be their bane.

Steel vs flair?

Conte has brought back the much needed steel at the back for Chelsea, as was expected of the Italian. Even his signings in the transfer window indicated as much as the Italian went for strengthening his defence more than anything else!

It’s the exact opposite for Klopp who plays exciting football even at the cost of leaking goals. The ‘Kop faithful’ are already endeared to his style and there are heavy expectations that they could get back into title contention sooner.

Team news

John Terry is on crutches and will be out for the hosts. Conte could bring in David Luiz for his second debut after securing the defender in the wee hours of deadline day. Also in contention for a debut is Marcos Alonso.

Liverpool, on the other hand, will be waiting for the fitness reports of Dejon Lovren and Emre Can both of whom look tentative for this vital clash.

EPL Match Prediction

Both teams are capable of playing breathtaking football which makes this match all the more entertaining. The recent upsurge in Diego Costa’s form is a happy sign for Chelsea who also are reaping the benefits of Eden Hazard rediscovering his magic touch. Liverpool aren’t bad either with Firmino and Sadio Mane leading the charge.

This has all the makings of an exciting draw – back it at odds of 3.30 (Sportsbet). Also keep an eye on Costa and Mane who could find themselves on the scoring sheet anytime in the game.
