Liverpool host Chelsea in the early morning kick off with Brendon Rodgers’ team hoping to get back to winning ways. If Liverpool expect to be challenging for a Champions League place again this season they need to keep in touch with the top 4. Liverpool currently sit in seventh place in the league with a host of seven other teams within three points. Defeat against Chelsea would see them surely dropping to a mid table position, and with their negative goal difference, they would effectively be seven points behind fourth place. Their home record reads Played 5: Won 2, Drawn 2 and Lost 1 (Villa 1:0) Scored 5 and Conceded 4. This puts Liverpool ranked as having the third best home defence in the league, but also the third worst attack! They have though conceded at least one goal in four out of their five games.
Unbeaten Chelsea come in to this match with an away form line of Played 5: Won 3, Drawn 2, Lost 0, Scored 13 and Conceded 7. Chelsea have scored as many goals away from home this season (13) as they have done at home. However nine of those goals came against just two teams Burnley and Everton. With Chelsea conceding more than a goal a game away from home, this game should be a close affair. The Head to Head stats also suggests this. In the last ten meetings between these teams at Anfield, the result has been Liverpool 4 wins, Chelsea 4 wins and 2 draws.
With Liverpool scoring and conceding almost a goal a game at home and with Chelsea conceding a goal a game away the advice here is for a Draw @ 13/5 (3.6) We do have two of the best attacking wingers on show for this game in the shape of Raheem Sterling and Edin Hazard, both with three goals each this season. This is the game for Sterling to show his class, so the advice is a Head to Head bet Raheem Sterling to have more shots on goal than Edin Hazard @ Evens (2.0)
