The Premier League’s game of the weekend takes place at 4pm Sunday at Anfield as Liverpool host Chelsea in what should be a cracking atmosphere with added Benitez-spice.
Liverpool start as 5/4 favourites to win the match, Chelsea can be backed at 9/4, whilst the draw is available also at 9/4. All odds quoted are with Ladbrokes.
Seventh-placed Liverpool’s season is pretty-much over and it can be summarised as a solid rather than a spectacular one under Brendan Rodgers. That said, The Reds will approach this game with nothing but victory in mind, and will take plenty of confidence from a decent run that has seen them lose only two of their last eleven league matches.
This is Chelsea’s second tough away match within a week and the overcame the first hurdle with flying colours, defeating Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage in midweek with John Terry getting on the scoresheet twice. To maintain their push for third place, Chelsea will look to secure all three points from their trip to Merseyside but they are unlikely to get things all their own way against a side they have struggled to beat recently.
Looking closely at those recent meetings, Liverpool have won four and drawn one of their last five league matches against Chelsea. This season’s reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge ended 1-1 and I would not be surprised to see the points shared again this time. Two third’s of Liverpool’s league fixture this season have gone over 2.5 goals and I would fancy that outcome in this match too. Finally a small bet on the 2-2 correct score looks worth chancing.
