Liverpool vs Chelsea Stats

  • There have been under 2.5 goals in 8 of Chelsea’s last 9 league games.
  • There have been under 2.5 goals in 5 of Liverpool’s last 6 home league games.
  • Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 5 league games.
     

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals

The matchup of the midweek comes at Anfield on Thursday night between two teams that will be hell-bent on finishing in the top 4 this season. Both will have had title aspirations before the season but neither have been able to keep up with the relentless Manchester City. 

Chelsea have seen an upturn in performances and results since Thomas Tuchel came into the club, notably at the back. The Blues haven’t conceded many under him and they kept another clean sheet against Manchester United at the weekend. 

They’ll fancy their chances of a win at Anfield, which is no longer a fortress for Liverpool who have lost their last 4 on the spin at home. It’s an incredible turnaround from their unbeaten home record that stretched back to 2017 and you do wonder about a potential mental block for the squad.

You can’t be too critical of Jurgen Klopp and his side though. They’ve had a mammoth few seasons playing at an extremely high intensity, there was always going to be a drop off. It’s now a case of securing Champions League football for next season for the Reds.

This seems like the worst season for entertaining games between the big boys, and that’s reflected in the results. There’s been plenty of goalless games too and I’m happy to oppose goals again here with under 2.5 available at an attractive even-money. It’s copped in pretty much all Chelsea games under Tuchel, whilst Anfield has seen goals thin on the ground of late. 

Betting Tip: No Goalscorer

I can’t ignore the 10/1 on ‘No Goalscorer’ here too. It’s landed four times already for Chelsea this season, three of which were against big six opposition. Liverpool’s last two draws have both been 0-0 as well. 

Backing no goalscorer instead of 0-0 means we will also get paid out if the only goal is an own goal.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Odds

Liverpool have lost their last four at home in the Premier League and things aren't getting any easier for the Reds this evening as they welcome Chelsea tonight who are unbeaten in their last ten.
