Liverpool v Chelsea: Reds favourites to lose to another big side

Chelsea travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool, and despite not having a good record against them look over priced at 3.6 with bet365 to come away with all three points.

The home side have won four and lost none of their last five Premier League meetings with the Blues, but there are reasons to believe that will change in this encounter.

Why? Because Brendan Rodgers’ team have a woeful record against the big sides this season.

They have only won three of 15 games against top-half opposition, and also come into the game on the back of two very poor performances against West Ham and Reading which ended in goalless bore draws.

Throw in the fact that Chelsea have won four of their last five league games – keeping a clean sheet in three of those victories – and you can see why the 3.6 on offer about them is simply too big and should be snapped up.

In the goalscorer markets I like the look of the odds on offer about Demba Ba whose physical presence in the box is likely to cause the Liverpool defence all sorts of problems.

He can be backed at 8 with bet365 and Ladbrokes in the first goalscorer market and tasty best of 3.25 with Stan James to net anytime.

Chelsea to win to nil also looks worth a small wager at the 5.5 on offer with Coral given the aforementioned fact that they have kept clean sheets in three of their last four wins in the league and Liverpool have failed to net in their last two games.

For those that like to play the correct score market, a 2-0 win for Rafa’s men at odds of 23 with BetVictor and Coral makes most appeal.
