On Saturday evening, two of the Premier League’s biggest teams clash, as Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield.
Liverpool heads into this crucial clash on the back of a 3-3 draw with Spanish team Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek. Jurgen Klopp’s side threw away a three-goal lead and the draw means the Reds will have to wait until the next round of games to confirm their place in the knock stages of the competition.
The Merseysiders recent form has been strong, as they have suffered just one defeat in their last 11 games in all competitions while winning four of their last five games.
The Reds have also been highly prolific in recent games, scoring at least three goals in six of their last seven games in all competitions.
Their recent home form in the Premier League has been decent, as they have suffered just one defeat in their last 15 home outings in the English top-flight.
The home side have recent history on their side in this clash, as the Reds are unbeaten in their last five meetings with the Blues.
Chelsea have hit form of late and on Wednesday night the Blues recorded a 4-0 Champions League win over Qarabag to confirm their place in the knockout stages of the competition.
The win means Antonio Conte’s side have now won six of their last seven games in all competitions. The team from south west London have also kept clean sheets in four of their last five competitive games.
Conte’s side have now recorded consecutive 4-0 wins on their travels, while also winning seven of their eight away games in the Premier League. The Blues have also kept clean sheets in three of their last four games on their travels in the top-flight.
This game could be a very close one. However, Sportseconds predicts that the home side will emerge with a victory.
