Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction Match Details

The Premier League leaders, Liverpool, will lock horns with Chelsea at Anfield stadium in what promises to be the most interesting match of the EPL round on Wednesday. 

Liverpool Preview & Form

Liverpool will aim to maintain their lead at the top of the table in front of their home fans. Their unbeaten streak in all competitions has stretched to 10 games, and they’ve only suffered one loss in their last 17 matches over the past few months. Anfield continues to be a stronghold for Liverpool, as they are unbeaten in their last 22 Premier League games at home since October 2022.

Manager Jurgen Klopp received a significant boost with the return of Dominik Szoboszlai, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Andy Robertson, who all made appearances from the bench in their recent match. Additionally, midfielder Alexis Mac Allister is expected to be available after recovering from a slight knock that sidelined him for the Norwich win. 

However, Liverpool will be without Mohamed Salah, who is still recovering from a thigh injury that will keep him out for several more weeks. Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago, Stefan Bajectic, and Joel Matip are also sidelined, while Wataru Endo remains on international duty with Japan at the Asian Cup.

Chelsea Preview & Form

Chelsea faced a goalless draw at home against Aston Villa in their last game (Cup fixture), setting up a replay next week. Now, their focus shifts back to the league after a 1-0 home win over Fulham two weeks ago. The Blues aim for their fourth consecutive Premier League victory, though their recent struggles on the road—losing five of their last six matches—contrast with their strong home form.

Nicolas Jackson will return from the Africa Cup of Nations following Senegal’s exit, but he may not be available for this game. Chelsea hope for positive updates on the fitness of Christopher Nkunku and Malo Gusto, while Levi Colwill, who missed the FA Cup draw due to injury, may recover in time to feature. However, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Marc Cucurella, Lesley Ugochukwu, Romeo Lavia, and Trevoh Chalobah remain sidelined with injuries.

Chelsea currently sit in ninth place on the Premier League table, 17 points behind the leaders. 

Liverpool vs Chelsea Betting Tips

Liverpool have been a strong force against Chelsea, particularly under Klopp as manager. Pochettino himself has only achieved one victory in the 12 matches that have taken place between his team and Liverpool. In light of this development, Pochettino now faces one of his most difficult managerial challenges in Liverpool. Liverpool have also been very good lately against Chelsea, going undefeated in their last seven meetings.

Liverpool have been playing very well lately; they won five of their last six games in all competitions. They are very good at getting goals; in their last six league and cup games, they have scored at least two goals five times.
