Liverpool to Win

Liverpool return to Premier League action off the back of a 5-2 win over Norwich at the weekend, advancing them to the FA Cup 5th round.

It is their first Premier League game since Jurgen Klopp announced his departure at the end of the season, and I expect the Kop to be in fine voice.

Chelsea’s away form is not the best either. So, I reckon Liverpool could scrape a victory here. I’d go 2-1.

Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals

Despite both sides missing some firepower up front, Mohammed Salah for Liverpool and potentially Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku for Chelsea, I still think both will score in this one.

Liverpool haven’t got the best recent record against Chelsea, and there’s a chance the visitors can catch them out.

For that reason, I would back Both Teams to Score in this one. I’m also chucking in Over 2.5 Goals so we can get a piece of Paddy’s Bet Builder Insurance offer!

Darwin Nunez to Score

In the absence of Mohammed Salah, Darwin Nunez has had to step up for Liverpool to replace his attacking threat.

He grabbed two against Bournemouth in the last game and one against Norwich in the Cup.

Chelsea’s defensive record isn’t excellent, especially away from home, and I think Nunez will cause them problems, I would back him to score here.

Cole Palmer to Have 1 or More Shots on Target

For Chelsea, Cole Palmer has been the leading man for them. He has been their best player since arriving from Manchester City in the summer, and I can see him being well up for this one.

He will be Chelsea’s biggest threat going forward, and he will get chances to shoot.

I would predict him to get at least 1 or More Shots on Target.
