Chelsea vs Liverpool betting preview
Chelsea have won just 1 of their last 5 games and 2 of their last 8Chelsea enter this clash on the back of a 2-2 at Bournemouth in the league. They still sit 4th in the Premier League standings but that result allowed Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers to close that gap to three points. The Blues haven’t won back-to-back games since November and have only won five of their last 16 in the league.
Frank Lampard's men have suffered eight defeats at Stamford Bridge this season, the most recent against Bayern Munich (0-3) in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 round.
Uncertainty continues to surround the fitness of Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi is expected to spearhead the attack. This match will also come too soon for N'Golo Kante, who continues to struggle with a muscle injury. Callum Hudson-Odoi may be held back for the weekend too while Jorginho is available to face Liverpool on Tuesday night, as Premier League suspensions triggered by accumulated yellow cards do not apply to domestic cups. Reece James and Marcos Alonso should start as wing backs in a 3-4-3 system while Kepa Arrizabalaga is likely to replace Willy Caballero in goal.
Liverpool's dreams of an 'Invincible' season were not just ended on SaturdayLiverpool suffered a disappointing defeat at Vicarage Road at the weekend. The 3-0 loss to Watford was their first Premier League defeat this season and ended a run of 18 consecutive wins and 44 unbeaten games in the top flight. Prior to that, they were also defeated by Atletico Madrid (1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano) in Champions League. They now saw two losses in three games and only beat West Ham (3-2) with a comeback from behind, which could have Jurgen Klopp on alert. Anyway, Jurgen Klopp's men haven't lost two matches in a row without scoring since 2014. As to direct encounters against Chelsea, Liverpool have lost just two of the last 12 meetings and have won each of their last three, including a 1-2 Premier League win at this ground in September.
Liverpool are boosted by the return of Joe Gomez and James Milner for this tie, but Naby Keita is still sidelined. The former Leipzig midfielder joins Xherdan Shaqiri and Jordan Henderson in the treatment room. As a result Fabinho and the youngster Curtis Jones should start in the middle of the park. Klopp has confirmed Ki-Jana Hoever and Neco Williams are available, with the latter expected to start at right back. Adrian, Joel Matip, Adam Lallana, Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino are the other players expected to benefit from rotation.
