- 5.30 pm: Liverpool vs Chelsea
Liverpool vs Chelsea Betting PreviewLiverpool have made a good start to the new campaign and enter this big match on the back of two consecutive wins over Burnley (2-0) and newly-promoted Norwich (3-0). The Reds are currently on a 12-match unbeaten league run that stretches back to early March, with 10 of those games ending in victory. With the return of defensive skipper Virgil Van Dijk and a near-empty medical room, Liverpool certainly have the look of title challengers once again.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have won two London derbies against Crystal Palace (3-0) and Arsenal (2-0) as they look to continue their progress under Thomas Tuchel from the back end of last season. The Blues looked rock solid as usual. They surrendered just 10 total shots in those two contests. Furthermore, Chelsea have conceded just 17 goals in 33 matches since the German manager’s arrival as head coach in January. The Blues will be looking to open with three wins — and clean sheets — for the first time in 11 years.
Jurgen Klopp's men have enjoyed an impressive recent record against the Blues, winning four of the last five Premier League encounters. The only exception to that sequence was last season’s corresponding fixture at Anfield Road, which Chelsea won 1-0.
The Reds are favourites to get all three points at 8/5 with STS. Chelsea are 2/1 to win the match with Betfred while the draw is backable at 12/5 with Ladbrokes.

Probable Line-UpsLiverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold; Keita, Henderson, Elliott; Mane, Salah, Jota.
Andrew Robertson could come back into the lineup despite the decent form of Kostas Tsimikas in his absence. The youngster Harvey Elliott, who played 90 minutes against the Clarets, should leave his berth to a more experienced player - Fabinho or Thiago Alcantara. James Milner has a small knock which he is working to be back from. No changes are expected up front, as Diogo Jota will hope to keep his place up top over Roberto Firmino and form the deadly trio with Sadio Manè and Mo Salah.
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta; James, Alonso, Jorginho, Kantè; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku.
N’Golo Kante returned from injury as a substitute last time out and should feature from the off, alongside Jorginho, freshly named Player of the Year. Christian Pulisic is unavailable due to COVID and should be replaced by Kai Havertz. The German will support the lone striker Romelu Lukaku, alongside Mason Mount. Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech provideAs left wing back, Marcos Alonso should get the nod over Ben Chilwell once again, while Cesar Azpilicueta is likely to complete the three man backline alongside Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger. Ruben Loftus-Cheek also tested positive to coronavirus and will miss the match.
Our Liverpool vs Chelsea Predictions
Liverpool gave Burnley plenty of opportunities last week and they are playing a Chelsea side who won't be as wasteful. We expect the Reds to concede - with Romelu Lukaku highly fancied to find the back of the net - but we believe they will be able to get a draw. The 1-1 could be the correct score as we predict a low scoring affair.
