Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

They lost 4-0 to a rampant Manchester United, and while the scoreline was fairly harsh on Chelsea, there is no doubt that they have to improve in the future. Improvement in the very immediate future would be preferable, because an openness to counter attacking football doesnt bode well when faced with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino.

The defeat was Chelseas heaviest since a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City back in February. In comparison to the Merseysiders, Chelseas season could not have got off to a worse possible start. The team then will be doing their upmost to avoid back-to-back defeats for the first time since March 2018. Under new boss Frank Lampard, the Blues were humbled 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford despite not putting in a disastrous performance.

Today's Tips

Liverpool and Chelsea face each other at Vodafone Park in an all-England UEFA Super Cup clash. The Reds aim to build on a 4-1 win over Norwich City in the opening match of the new Premier League campaign and seeing that Jurgen Klopp welcomes Sadio Mane back to the starting line-up, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League winners.

Adrian was called on that day and is likely to start in goal. One big loss for the Reds will be the absence of stopper Alisson after the Brazilian picked up an injury in the victory over the Canaries. Full-back Nathaniel Clyne remains ruled out with a cruciate ligament injury that is likely to restrict him the sidelines for the majority of the campaign. Mo Salah will be keen to extend his promising start to the season after getting off to the perfect start with a goal at the weekend.

The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.

How we calculate our stats

The Reds aim to build on a 4-1 win over Norwich City in the opening match of the new Premier League campaign and seeing that Jurgen Klopp welcomes Sadio Mane back to the starting line-up, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League winners. Liverpool and Chelsea face each other at Vodafone Park in an all-England UEFA Super Cup clash.

Tammy Abraham netted a sensational hat trick at Molineux, and in him and Mason Mount Chelsea have a very exciting duo of English youngsters. Their thrilling 5-2 win at Wolves last weekend was a high point of Lampards time at Chelsea, and it was a welcome return from the international break after a disappointing draw against Sheffield United before.

However, they are in good form in European competitions and are on a 15-match unbeaten run which culminated with a 4-1 thumping of Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League final last season. They appeared in both 2012 and 2013 but were beaten by Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively. Having appeared in three editions of the UEFA Super Cup, the Londoners have only managed to lift the trophy on one occasion and that was back in 1998. The omens are also slightly worrying heading into the clash against Liverpool.

3Tips for you!

Reigning Europa League champions Chelsea made their return to the Champions League in midweek, but it didnt exactly go smoothly for Frank Lampards side. Now, the 2 beaten European champions go head to head in the Premier League, and both will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeats. They lost 1-0 at home to Valencia, although that indignity was softened by the fact that Champions League holders Liverpool also succumbed to defeat.

Frank Lampard suffered a devastating 4-0 blow at the hands of Manchester United. The fact they made 18 goal attempts and failed to score this weekend, speaks volumes of their ineptitude at the moment. On the other side, Chelsea endured a terrible start to their new Premier League campaign. Ultimately, Chelsea are struggling with goal conversion. Former Chelsea player is going through all sorts of problems including the transfer ban and the fact he lost two important players this summer.

Liverpool are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Chelsea and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. The Reds, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Newcastle United 3-1 in their last league fixture, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah helping Jurgen Klopps team keep their 100% record in the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign intact.
