Chelsea v Liverpool Betting Preview

Chelsea and Liverpool have given themselves work to do in the Champions League. Both Premier League sides lost their opening match in the competition and will be keen to put that disappointment behind them when they meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

This is one of those fixtures that always promises great excitement. Only one of the last 11 meetings between these two have failed to produce at least two goals, and we’re hopeful of an end-to-end match in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Chelsea to Play Their Part

Liverpool may be disappointed with the start of their Champions League title defence, but they couldn’t be happier with the way their league campaign has begun.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are five points clear at the top of the Premier League table following a maximum tally of 15 points from their opening five matches. Klopp himself has admitted to being pleasantly surprised by the way that Liverpool have hit the ground running, but he knows there is still room for improvement.

Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet so far, and we don’t think they’re going to secure one at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are a long way from competing for the Premier League title but their fans are largely happy with the way things have begun under the management of Frank Lampard.

Wherever they finish this season, the Blues are going to be very entertaining. For that reason, the first place to turn for our betting tips is both teams to score at 4/7 with William Hill.

If you’re comfortable taking a bigger risk for a bigger potential reward, consider backing the 1-1 correct score at 15/2 with BetVictor.

That was the scoreline in over half of those last 11 meetings between Chelsea and Liverpool. Chelsea are going to finish a fair way behind Liverpool come the end of the season but there may be nothing between the two late on Sunday afternoon.

Abraham Ready for Another Big Match

The big story from the early part of Chelsea’s season is the top quality performances of their younger players. Every single one of the Blues’ 11 Premier League goals has been scored by products of their youth system with Tammy Abraham particularly impressive up front.

When Lampard took over it looked as though Abraham would be competing with Olivier Giroud to be Chelsea’s main striker. That competition is all but over already as Abraham is the Premier League’s joint top goalscorer alongside Sergio Aguero.

The next step for Abraham is scoring in the biggest matches. He can do just that by scoring on Sunday at 9/5 with Paddy Power.

When it comes to a Liverpool goalscorer we really like the look of the 19/10 that 888Sport are quoting on Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian has earned a huge amount of praise for the all-round quality of his performances this season. He is, however, first and foremost a striker and can sniff out a chance to score at Stamford Bridge.
