Liverpool vs Chelsea Betting Preview
Liverpool have been in dreadful form recently, but were at least able to pick up maximum points in a dominant performance against rock-bottom Sheffield last weekend. The Reds have earned just three points from their last five outings. They now sit sixth, one point and one place behind Chelsea. Another loss on Thursday would see Liverpool fall to five successive home defeats for the first time in their entire history. Plus, Jurgen Klopp's men have scored just once in their last five matches at Anfield, having netted in each of their 42 outings prior to that. Liverpool have dominated the direct encounters in recent years, beating Chelsea in five of the last six meetings across all competitions and in each of the last four in the Premier League.
Chelsea enter this clash on the back of a goalless draw against Manchester Utd at the weekend. As a result, they are unbeaten after playing their first nine games with Thomas Tuchel in-charge and have conceded just two goals in the process. The Blues' away record has also improved in recent weeks; they have won four of their five games on the road across all competitions under the German manager, drawing the other (including in Champions League at Atletico Madrid), having lost four of their last five away outings with Frank Lampard at the helm.
- Despite losing the invincible aura at Anfield, Liverpool are favorites at 5/4 with Mansion
- The Draw can be backed at 13/5 with Bet365
- A return to winning ways for Chelsea is available at 6/4 with Unibet.

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Fabinho, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Goalkeeper Alisson Becker, whose errors have cost his side a number of points in the past month, is expected to return for this match. Fabinho is also set to return for the Merseyside outfit. The other potential returnee is Diogo Jota, who could replace Roberto Firmino in the front trio. Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Caoimhin Kelleher all remain sidelined for the hosts.
Chelsea (3-4-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Werner
Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that the clash will come too soon for Thiago Silva. Hence, the back three of César Azpiliicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger will remain unchanged. Olivier Giroud is likely to spearhead the attack. Elsewhere, Timo Werner, Marcos Alonso, Kurt Zouma, Kai Havertz, Reece James, Christian Pulisic and Jorginho were all on the bench at the weekend and are all pushing for a start here.
Our Liverpool vs Chelsea PredictionsThe fortress that was Anfield has been destroyed in the space of four games. And, with Chelsea increasingly growing in confidence under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, another difficult game beckons Jurgen Klopp & co. For both teams, a draw would be a decent result.
