Liverpool v chelsea prediction

The upcoming Premier League clash between Liverpool and Chelsea, scheduled for Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at Anfield, is set to be a highly anticipated encounter and we’re ready for some Premier League betting action.

Liverpool enters this match in excellent form, leading the Premier League with 48 points from 21 matches, and having won five of their last six games across all competitions.

They recently secured a convincing 5-2 win over Norwich City in the FA Cup, demonstrating their strong attacking capabilities. Key players like Curtis Jones, Darwin Núñez, Diogo Jota, Virgil van Dijk, and Ryan Gravenberch have been instrumental in their recent success.

Chelsea back in form?

Chelsea, on the other hand, has experienced a more mixed run of form, particularly in away games. They currently sit ninth in the Premier League, having accumulated 31 points from 21 matches. Despite winning four of their last six away matches across all competitions, they have struggled with defensive issues, especially in Premier League away games.

Key players for Chelsea include Raheem Sterling, Conor Gallagher, and the recent addition Cole Palmer, who has made significant contributions this season.

The head-to-head record between the two sides is closely contested, with their last seven meetings ending in draws, marking the longest streak of draws between two top-flight clubs in English football history.

Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp is on the brink of a significant achievement, potentially becoming one of just six managers to register 200 Premier League wins. This adds an emotional layer to the match, as it will be one of his final games in charge of Liverpool.

In terms of team news, Liverpool will be without Mohamed Salah due to injury, and Wataru Endo is unavailable due to international duty. Chelsea will miss several players due to injuries and international commitments, including Wesley Fofana, Reece James, and Nicolas Jackson.

Predictions for Liverpool v Chelsea

Predictions for the outcome of the game vary, with some sources expecting a narrow Liverpool victory, while others anticipate a more dominant performance from the home side. The historical trend of draws in this fixture and the current form of both teams suggest a closely contested match.

However, Liverpool’s strong home record and emotional drive to succeed under Klopp’s final season could be deciding factors.

We’ll go for a 2-1 win for Liverpool.
