Chelsea 23/10 to beat Liverpool in Saturday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to beat Liverpool
Odds: 23/10 @ Bet365
The Premier League is back this weekend with a number of colossal games to come. Manchester City’s dominance at the top of the table has seen their nearest rivals scrambling to keep pace, with England’s biggest clubs desperate to chase down Pep Guardiola’s men. With this in mind, there is a massive showdown at the top of the table as third-placed Chelsea travel to Anfield to face fifth-placed Liverpool.
Liverpool have been in good form recently, winning their last three in a row. This has allowed the Reds to rise up to fifth in the league, now just a point behind Tottenham in fourth. 24 goals scored shows they are very good going forward, but the fact they have conceded 17 times displays that they are still suffering from debilitating deficiencies at the back. Jurgen Klopp needs to address these problems after he watched his side surrender a three-goal lead in the Champions League as Sevilla defied the odds to draw 3-3 with the Reds.
For Chelsea, recent weeks have yielded much better success. Four wins in a row has seen them rise to third in the table with 25 points, just one behind Manchester United. While they are still nine points shy of City at the top, Antonio Conte will know that the festive period is likely to see Guardiola’s men drop points, so they must look to continue their good run if they are to catch up. While it will be a hotly contested game, we are backing Chelsea to win with odds of 23/10 from Bet365.
