England Premier League
(14 Apr 2019)
Liverpool vs Chelsea
Liverpool meets Chelsea in a big derby of Round 34 of the English Premier League. The hosts have steadily been building momentum with six wins on the trot in all competitions. Yet more impressively, Liverpool has scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches in Premier League. Unlike Liverpool, Chelsea return from a long-haul trip across Europe, and a flat performance could easily be forthcoming. However, Chelsea hasn’t lost at Anfield in the league since 2011/12, though for most of these years it’s been the Blues that have been fighting for trophies and the two sides have different ambitions these days.
- Liverpool is undefeated in their last 37 home matches (Premier League)
- So far this season, each of Chelsea’s PL away matches against fellow top-six teams have seen them lose the first half by a margin of over 1.5 goals
Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction
Liverpool mustn’t experience another slip-up against their big rival Chelsea. Meanwhile, Chelsea is finding their feet under Maurizio Sarri at the ideal moment in the season. However, they are still without a single point, or even a goal, this calendar year, from Premier League matches away to any side currently above the relegation zone. All in all, this should be an intense but exciting match with the title-chasers as a strong favourite here.
