Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool have been pushed in their last few games in the Premier League, but even in the face of adversity, they have managed to find ways to win. For example, their wins against Fulham and Tottenham only came because the Reds benefited from mistakes from their opponents. In their last league game, they had come from behind to beat Southampton. So the pressure has been there on them, but so far they have handled themselves. Liverpool are currently on a four-match winning streak in the league, and it is 12 games undefeated now for them in the top flight. Liverpool are on a four-match winning streak at Anfield as well in the EPL.

Liverpool home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D2 from their 16 matches played. The Reds are almost at an average of three goals per home fixtures this season so they have not been goal shy. Their defence has also been superb having conceded just 10 home goals all season which is an average of 0.6 per game against. However, they have failed to claim a clean sheet in any of their last four played home and away. 69% of league games at Anfield this season have made it over 2.5 goals, even with Liverpool claiming a clean sheet in 56% of home fixtures. The Reds have also been leading at the halftime break in 11 of their home fixtures, and they are currently running on a 12 match scoring streak at Anfield.

  • Chelsea have lost four of their last six road games

 

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues have a bit of form behind them with a three-match winning streak going. However, they haven’t faced anyone of any type of quality like Liverpool in that sequence. The Blues have had some struggles out on the road recently, losing four of their last six away from home. They have won two of their last three away but they were against Cardiff and Fulham who are both in the relegation zone. In their recent road form of W2 L4, the Blues didn’t score in any of those four away defeats. So that is not the type of form that they can take a lot of confidence from ahead of a trip to Anfield.

Out on the road overall, this season the Blues are W9 D1 L6 and from that campaign, they have tallied up 23 goals, which is an average of 1.4 per game. There has not been a clean sheet earned by the Londoners in any of their last six away games, which is another pretty big concern for them ahead of this big game. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last thirteen away games. The Blues have come up with the first goal of the game in nine away games this season, while six of their nine road wins have been by a one-goal margin. Anything out of this tough game would go a long way to seeing them take a top-four finish.

Liverpool v Chelsea Predictions

Liverpool to win: The Reds home form speaks for itself and Chelsea have been far from great out on their travels. Liverpool have to step it up in this big challenge and they should just have enough to get across the finish line and secure three points. Home win.
