Chelsea v Liverpool betting Tips

We’ve got an absolute humdinger on the cards in the English Premier League on Sunday 20 September when Chelsea clash with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. This will be the second EPL match for both teams after Chelsea headed to Brighton and Liverpool entertained Leeds United.

Are Chelsea Really Premier League Title Contenders?

Frank Lampard has been given big bucks to spend now that the transfer embargo has been lifted at Chelsea FC and he’s been able to recruit top-drawer players in a bid to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City. This will be his second full season in charge at the Bridge and owner Roman Abramovich will want to see signs that the team can challenge for major honours.

This match is therefore a fantastic opportunity to try and beat the champions of England and lay down a marker for the season ahead. Some will like the look of Chelsea to win the game at 23/10 considering that they boasted a 100% record at home after lockdown and that included a 2-1 win over Manchester City.

Should Liverpool Be Favourites for Trip to London?

Betfair go as short as 11/10 about Liverpool leaving Stamford Bridge with a maximum haul and it might be the case that this points machine of a team carry on where they left off when they landed 99 points en route to landing a first Premier League title for thirty years.

It will indeed be interesting to see how they cope with the added pressure of being champions and whether that renowned Starting 11 can excel in these sort of matches, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane likely to be among the leading scorers in the division.

However, there were a few bumps in the road before and after lockdown, with a 3-0 reverse away to relegated Watford being a notable result, while there was a lacklustre goalless draw at Goodison Park along with a 1-1 draw against Burnley.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

With Thiago Silva arriving in a bid to shore up a somewhat leaky defence and Ben Chilwell operating in the left-back role, we can have some confidence that Chelsea will be able to nullify the Liverpool attack more effectively than a few months ago at Anfield when they lost 5-3 to the Reds.

The Blues have also upgraded when it comes to the attacking positions, with Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech all set to launch themselves into English football and we think Chelsea are a decent shout with half a goal start.

It also seems likely that we’ll see both sides find the net during the ninety minutes and will take aim at the attractive odds about a Chelsea victory and both sides to find the net.
