Liverpool vs Chelsea Predictions


Liverpool responded to a 2-0 derby loss to Everton with a comprehensive 2-0 win at Sheffield United last weekend. But the Reds have been poor at home and have lost four straight games at Anfield.

Chelsea look solid and a string of low scoring games and clean sheets can continue with another win.

  • Liverpool have lost their last 4 home matches (Premier League).
  • Liverpool have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 home matches (Premier League).
  • Liverpool have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches (Premier League).
  • Chelsea have won 7 of their last 10 matches (all competitions).
  • Chelsea have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 9 matches (Premier League).
  • Chelsea have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 10 matches (all competitions).

Head-to-Head


The two sides have played 187 matches and Liverpool have an 82-64 advantage over Chelsea, with 41 games drawn. 

Liverpool beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the reverse fixture this season. Two quick-fire goals from Sadio Mane after half-time earned the Reds a 2-0 victory. 

Liverpool Form

 
Liverpool ended a run of four straight Premier League defeats last weekend when beating bottom of the table Sheffield United 2-0 at Bramall Lane.

Curtis Jones opened the scoring just after half time and Kean Bryan’s own goal sealed all three points for Liverpool.

It was the first time in five games that Liverpool scored two or more goals, and it was their first clean sheet in eight matches. 

Liverpool are winless in their last six Premier League games at Anfield, including losing the last four in a row.

The Reds have only scored two goals in their last six at home and conceded nine - a run that has seen them drop to sixth in the Premier League.

Liverpool Injuries and Team News


Goalkeeper Alisson is set to return for Liverpool after missing the Sheffield United match for personal reasons. 

Fabinho is also likely to return to the squad after missing the last four games through injury.
Captain Jordan Henderson is out with an abductor injury, so Nat Phillips should retain his place in the back four alongside Ozan Kabak.

Caoimhin Kelleher is doubtful with a knock and the Reds are still without long-term absentees Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Diogo Jota. 

Chelsea Form


Chelsea extended their unbeaten run to 10 games in all competitions with a 0-0 draw against Manchester United last weekend.

In a game of few chances, Chelsea controlled possession and had 18 shots on goal, with Callum Hudson-Odoi closest to scoring with a dipping volley in the first-half.

The Blues remain unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel, winning six and drawing three of nine matches played in all competitions.

Chelsea have won four of their last five away games in all competitions, scored six and conceded two. 

Chelsea Injuries and Team News


Callum Hudson-Odoi should return for Chelsea after sustaining a knee injury against Man United, but centre-back Thiago Silva is ruled out with a thigh injury.

Tuchel made three changes for the 0-0 draw with United, leaving out Timo Werner, Jorginho and Marcos Alonso.

After scoring just two goals in their last three, Tuchel may bring Werner into the starting XI to partner Olivier Giroud up front.

Verdict

Despite their win against Sheffield United last weekend, Liverpool remain unconvincing this season - especially at Anfield. Chelsea are a solid outfit under Thomas Tuchel and are tipped for a narrow victory.
