Betting Tips for the game
Chelsea were unable to find a way past a stubborn West Ham defence as the two London rivals played out a goalless draw at the London Stadium during the weekend. This was followed by a 2-1 comeback victory over Liverpool in the League Cup.
Liverpool’s 126-year record of consecutive wins was broken after a 3-0 victory over Southampton at Anfield. This is the first time the Reds have picked up seven consecutive wins to begin a new campaign.
The recent match between Chelsea and Liverpool ended up as a 2-1 victory for the blues in the League Cup game at Anfield. The last league meeting at Stamford Bridge between these two teams produced a 1-0 win for the blues. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Chelsea.

Liverpool are given a decent price of 2.40 for a victory. Even though the Reds have been able to win seven out of the eight competitive matches this season and hold a 100% record in the Premier League, the team may be set for a couple of poor results before they start to go on a strong run. Teams that have gone on an extended winning streak tend to suffer for a few matches before they are able to pick up once again. Maurizio Sarri also showed in the League Cup match that he holds the tactical advantage over Jurgen Klopp by getting a late win. Our preview would go with the win for Chelsea.

Chelsea vs Liverpool draw odds: 3.50
Liverpool win odds: 2.40
Correct Score odds
The blues rely heavily Eden Hazard in order to break down opposition, but this was a match that could actually favour the likes of Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard. Liverpool will also try to hit on the break with some incredible attacking players in their line-up. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Chelsea.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two teams that attack with the law of quality, endeavour, and passion. Both managers like to play beautiful and attractive football. This is likely to result in a very open game – just like the League Cup meeting between the two clubs. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Olivier Giroud is likely to make his way back to the starting line-up after being rested for the midweek match. He has an excellent record against Liverpool after managing five goals in his previous seven games against this club. Even though he is yet to score this season, our first goalscorer prediction would back Giroud.
