You might look at these two team’s league positions and think to yourself that this match will be a walk in the park for log leaders Liverpool. However, Liverpool has not lost to this opponent in their last 7 matches while Chelsea have not lost to Liverpool in their last 3 matches. The reason for this is that these teams have played out to a draw in 7 matches in a row. This includes the two cup meetings that were won outside of the scheduled 90 minutes.

Chelsea’s won that match by 1-0 and Liverpool’s last win in the scheduled 90 minutes in this fixture was in October of 2020. Both teams are in good form with Liverpool having one draw in their last seven games and Chelsea have one draw and one loss in their last seven games.

As close as this game has been in recent meetings. What edges it for me, is Chelsea's away from. They have 5 losses in 10 matches played, and they have conceded 17 goals away from home. Their away from is enough to convince me that this game may end in a home win or a draw 9/50. 

Both Teams to score – Yes 11/20

Chelsea has conceded a goal in each of their last 8 fixtures. They have managed to keep a clean sheet in just 2 of their last 6 visits to Anfield. The last clean sheet being in a 0-0 draw between the sides in January of 2023. It has been a full calendar year since that match took place and Liverpool are back to being one of the best sides in the world and their numbers prove that. Chelsea, however, have been struggling for form in the league but are still a dangerous side. Both teams to score yes 11/20, is an attractive bet noting that Chelsea will have a goal or two in them.  

Anytime Goal Scorer – Cole Palmer 53/20

A 21-year-old with a point to prove after leaving current world champions for the blues of London. His made 17 appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League scoring 9 goals and providing 4 assists. He is by far the player to keep an eye on from a Chelsea perspective. He made 41 appearances for Manchester City before moving on to Chelsea. He got the blues only goal against Fulham at Stamford bridge on the 13th of January 2024. He is a promising young talent and a proven danger up front. The odds on him being an anytime goals score in the game are set at 53/20 

Anytime Goal Scorer – Darwin Nunez 34/25

From being compared to Erling Haaland, to being considered one of the biggest flop signings of last season. Klopp’s faith in Darwin Nunez has been consistent and unwavering. Even through all the criticism the player has received during his tenure at Anfield. He has been a player that everyone has bashed for not scoring enough goals, or for missing obvious chances.

His numbers this season paint a different picture. He has 11 goals, and 10 assists in 33 appearances for Liverpool this season. that is 20 goal contributions in 33 matches played. He is one of Liverpool’s most important goal outlets in all competitions. Only Mo Salah and Diogo Jota have more goals for Liverpool this season in all competitions then Darwin. The odds on him taking a goal in this fixture are sitting at 34/25.
