Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting Tips
Chelsea survived a few scares against Brighton in their first game of the 2020/21 season to eventually run out comfortable 3-1 winners, while Liverpool looked more than a little rusty as a brilliant individual display from Mo Salah eventually helped them overpower newly promoted Leeds Utd 4-3.
While Timo Werner and Kai Havertz failed to find the net on their Premier League debuts, Chelsea’s two new German stars will have been pleased to get some match sharpness back in their system as they head into their first ‘Big Six’ clash, and that could see the pair contribute to a cracker in West London.
The Reds will need to iron out the errors that marred the start of their title defence last week. If they don’t, Jurgen Klopp may once again be forced to rely on the firepower that saw Liverpool chalk up an entertaining 5-3 win against the Blues on the penultimate weekend of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
