Liverpool vs Chelsea – Predictions Odds and Betting Tips
Liverpool take on Chelsea at Anfield in one of the classic Premier League encounters this weekend. The edge and the rivalry between the two teams have fallen off slightly since the days of Jose Mourinho vs Rafa Benitez, but it still remains a feisty encounter. Liverpool play a day later than Manchester City and could be trailing Guardiola’s men once again. Chelsea remain in contention with Spurs, Arsenal, and Manchester United for the Champions League qualification spots. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Liverpool produced a comeback victory capable of defining their campaign, as they overpowered the Southampton with a 3-1 success at the St Mary’s Stadium. This was followed by a 2-0 win over at Porto in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final.
Chelsea were under pressure against Slavia Prague in the Europa League quarter-finals but still came away with a 1-0 away victory in the first leg. This was the fourth consecutive victory for the blues, who enjoyed a 2-0 win over rivals West Ham last weekend.
Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge earlier in the campaign. Chelsea picked up a 2-1 victory in their last visit to Anfield for a League Cup meeting around the same period. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Liverpool.

Chelsea are unbeaten in five games against Liverpool, whose last victory over this opponent was in September 2016. Jurgen Klopp has especially struggled in games against the Blues, but this match could see the Reds break the run. Liverpool will be incredibly motivated for three points. Even though Chelsea would be in a similar position, the Blues have had a disastrous away form in 2019. Liverpool also have had an additional rest day along with a home game in the Champions League action. Our preview would take a victory for the home team.

Liverpool vs Chelsea draw odds: 4.20
Chelsea win odds: 5.25
Correct Score odds
Liverpool have been averaging close to 3 goals per match. Chelsea have shipped a remarkable 16 goals in the last six away matches. The possession football from Chelsea will provide numerous counter-attacking opportunities for Liverpool, who also have Salah back on form. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Liverpool.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent games between Liverpool and Chelsea have been cagey and tight games – a fact reflected by the presence of just two high-scoring encounters in the last six meetings between the two clubs. There is likely to be a change on this front, as Chelsea have been poor at the back – especially in away league matches. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are going through a dip in form, while it is Roberto Firmino’s turn to find himself consistently making a difference on the scoresheet. The Brazilian has scored and assisted two goals in his last three matches. His movement will be a nightmare for the likes of David Luiz. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Roberto Firmino.
