Chelsea (@3.75) vs Liverpool (@2.0)

Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

Tammy Abraham netted a sensational hat trick at Molineux, and in him and Mason Mount Chelsea have a very exciting duo of English youngsters. Their thrilling 5-2 win at Wolves last weekend was a high point of Lampards time at Chelsea, and it was a welcome return from the international break after a disappointing draw against Sheffield United before.

The Reds, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Newcastle United 3-1 in their last league fixture, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah helping Jurgen Klopps team keep their 100% record in the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign intact. Liverpool are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Chelsea and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

Liverpool -

Chelsea fans will be wanting a reaction from their team following their humbling against Manchester United at the weekend. Whilst they will create a few problems for the Reds, that will not be forthcoming on Wednesday night. Jurgen Klopps team have far too much quality for their opponents and whilst it should be an entertaining match, Liverpool will run out relatively comfortable winners.

Considering the contrasting weekend performances from these teams, a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopps men looks to be on the cards. We like the look of a Liverpool -1 Handicap Win, and were opting for an emphatic 3-0 scoreline in Istanbul too. In addition, 10 of Liverpools 12 competitive matches have seen them win by at least a 2 goal margin, including a 2-0 win over Chelsea back in April.

It is fair to say that the Blues were missing some key members of their squad in the defeat to the Red Devils at the weekend but they could be boosted by a few returnees. Although, the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger all remain on the sidelines. Willian was struggling with a hamstring injury but should be cleared to return for the trip to Turkey. NGolo Kante has also picked up a small injury so is a slight doubt.

Next Fixtures To Kick Off

Therefore, sadio Mane is likely to make his return following his extended break. However, Liverpool brought Adrian this summer and he will take the place on the goal line. The Reds will be without their first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker who suffered a calf injury in the opening round of the Premier League. All other regulars are fit to play on Wednesday.

The Blues, on the other hand, continue life without Belgian superstar Eden Hazard and considering that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United at the weekend, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Liverpools party in Istanbul. In their last meeting in a competitive game Jurgen Klopps men emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Mohamed Salah and Co.

Chelsea vs Liverpool is live on Super Sunday from 1pm; kick-off 4.30pm after West Ham vs Manchester United. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Frank Lampard suffered a devastating 4-0 blow at the hands of Manchester United. The fact they made 18 goal attempts and failed to score this weekend, speaks volumes of their ineptitude at the moment. On the other side, Chelsea endured a terrible start to their new Premier League campaign. Ultimately, Chelsea are struggling with goal conversion. Former Chelsea player is going through all sorts of problems including the transfer ban and the fact he lost two important players this summer.

They lost 4-0 to a rampant Manchester United, and while the scoreline was fairly harsh on Chelsea, there is no doubt that they have to improve in the future. Improvement in the very immediate future would be preferable, because an openness to counter attacking football doesnt bode well when faced with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino.
