Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview

Liverpool vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 14th April 2019

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

Liverpool have the chance to take a significant step towards clinching the Premier League title when they take on Chelsea in this game.

This is arguably the only remaining game that Liverpool can drop points in while Manchester City are still going to face Tottenham and Manchester United.

The Reds have been in fine form but their fans won’t forget the last time they were in a title race like this as it was Chelsea who came and ruined their pursuit.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are a far better team than that of Brendan Rodgers and fans will expect them to take advantage of Chelsea’s poor away form to get all three points here as they have done in 7 of their last 8 matches in all competitions.

Chelsea also have something to play for as they head to Liverpool.  The Blues are currently fighting with Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United for a place in the Premier League top four.

They come here after struggling to beat Slavia Prague 0-1 in the Europa League.  That win was their second consecutive away win but they haven’t been at their best when they play away from home.

Chelsea currently have 66 points and are 3rd in the league table having played a game more than other teams in the top four race, so they would want to win this game to remain inside the top four.

Bookmakers have priced Liverpool up as odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Chelsea will start the game as underdogs.

Goal markets point to a high-scoring game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Mohamed Salah is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
