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

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.

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.

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.

League Table

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.

Frank Lampards troops aim to rejoin the race for the title and we predict that they will go for a win in Sundays showdown in London. The Blues impressed in a 5-2 win at Wolverhampton, with England rising star Abraham scoring a hat-trick for the capital club. All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Liverpool face each other in the Premier League derby on Matchday 6.

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.

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.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Liverpool and Chelsea face each other at Vodafone Park in an all-England UEFA Super Cup clash. The Reds aim to build on a 4-1 win over Norwich City in the opening match of the new Premier League campaign and seeing that Jurgen Klopp welcomes Sadio Mane back to the starting line-up, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League winners.

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.

Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of 11 million.

However, they are in good form in European competitions and are on a 15-match unbeaten run which culminated with a 4-1 thumping of Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League final last season. They appeared in both 2012 and 2013 but were beaten by Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively. Having appeared in three editions of the UEFA Super Cup, the Londoners have only managed to lift the trophy on one occasion and that was back in 1998. The omens are also slightly worrying heading into the clash against Liverpool.

mathematical football predictions

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.
