Chelsea v Liverpool betting preview
Chelsea have suffered mixed fortunes in domestic action so farChelsea fell to defeat in their first Champions League game of the season in midweek. Ross Barkley missed a late penalty-kick and La Liga strugglers Valencia exited Stamfrod Bridge with a 1-0 victory. In Premier League, the Blues have collected 8 points from the first five fixtures, and already trail Liverpool by 7 points. However, last Saturday’s 5-2 triumph at Wolves, where Abraham hit a hat-trick, did highlight their potential. Their defense remains a major concern as only Norwich (12) had conceded more goals than Chelsea (11) in the Premier League this season. The Blues are yet to record a single clean sheet in any of their six matches across all competitions.
Chelsea are sweating over the fitness of Mount, who was forced off in midweek de to a knock. Lampard has plenty of options if Mount fails to recover, with Pedro, Ross Barkley and Christian Pulisic hoping for a recall. N'Golo Kantè is also a major doubt and should the Frenchman not be ready to play, then Lampard may continue with the 3-4-2-1. tammy Abraham, of course, will lead the line while Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic will start as plyamakers. In defense, Kurt Zouma could continue alongside Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori, with Antonio Rudiger's fitness uncertain Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi are set to feature for the under-23s again before being considered for selection, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains out.
Liverpool boast a 100% record in the EPL and hold a five-point buffer at the top of the tableLiverpool remains the only team in the Premier League to maintain a 100% unbeaten run five games into a season. Anyway, after picking up a 3-1 win over Newcastle after returning from the international break, they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Napoli in their Champions League opening match few days ago. As to direct matches, the Reds have won only one of their last seven matches against Chelsea. The last meeting ended 1-1 draw in the UEFA Super Cup last month, with Liverpool winning on penalties.
The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joe Gomez and Georginio Wijnaldum will be pushing for recalls but Jurgen Klopp is expected to keep changes at minimum. Andrew Robertson overcame a slight knock to start here while Divock Origi and Naby Keita are back into the picture. As a result, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Manè are sure to start in attack. Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana provide further options in midfield but they may instead come into the reckoning in the EFL Cup tie against MK Dons next week. Alisson and Nathaniel CLyne remain out through injury.
