Liverpool v Chelsea Preview, Premiership, 31st January 2017

Liverpool are having a very difficult time of it recently as not only were they knocked out of the EFL Cup 2-0 on aggregate by Southampton, they were also knocked out of the FA Cup last weekend when losing 2-1 at home against championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The hosts currently occupy 4th position in the premiership league table on 45pts having secured 13 wins, 6 draws and 3 defeats, but did lose their last league match played when coming undone again at home 3-2 against struggling Swansea City.

All hope of securing the premiership title has now gone for Liverpool and the main aim now this season will be to secure a top 4 finish and a champions league spot. However with three defeats in their last three matches played, the confidence of the players and fans will be rock bottom and the hosts look to be right up against it in this game against the current league leaders.

Chelsea are in cruise control at the moment as not only did they breeze through their 4th round FA Cup tie at home against Brentford 4-0, they are also 8pts clear at the top of the premiership league table on 55pts having secured 18 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats.

The visitors will be in confident mood for this game having seen their opponents struggle in recent weeks and a victory would take them one step closer to securing their 6th premier league title.

Liverpool Team News :

Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne is still absent with a rib injury and Ovie Ejaria is sidelined after rupturing ankle ligaments at the weekend, but midfielder Adam Lallana is set to play after sitting out the FA Cup defeat to Wolves.

Chelsea Team News :

Chelsea are to revert to their first-choice lineup for Tuesday night’s clash. Head coach Antonio Conte made nine changes for last weekend’s FA Cup win over Brentford and has no injury doubts for the trip to Anfield.

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and defender Branislav Ivanovic, who have both been linked with moves, may be late omissions from the squad if they leave before Tuesday night’s transfer deadline.

Liverpool v Chelsea Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from Anfield Stadium will become the 167th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Liverpool have won 71 times overall with 48 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Chelsea have managed to secure 57 victories overall with 13 of those having came away from home and those statistics do look likely to change after this match what with Chelsea playing some great football at the moment.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows Liveprool with a slight advantage, having won two times, compared to Chelsea having won just the one match and the remaining two games having finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

473 Goals have been scored in the previous 166 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.85.

242 of those Goals have came in the 80 previous matches played at Anfield Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 3.02.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to strongly suggest that this game should see at least 2 or 3 Goals Scored in this game on Tuesday night.

Liverpool v Chelsea Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Liverpool would need to play much better than what we have currently see from them in recent weeks if they are to stand any chance of winning this game, but with home advantage and having already beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, the hosts are certainly not without a chance of causing what would no doubt be a huge upset on Tuesday night.

Chelsea are playing some excellent stuff at the moment and although their 4-0 thrashing of Brentford in the 4th round of the FA Cup came as no real surprise, it is those kinds of results that increase the players confidence and they will all be well up for this game.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Chelsea to Win as although Liverpool do have home advantage and have beaten Chelsea this season, I just think the three recent defeats has sucked the life out of the Liverpool squad and I fully expect Chelsea to take full advantage of that in this one.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Chelsea Striker Diego Costa to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as he continues to get the job done in front of goal time and time again and although his head was distracted with a possible big money move to China, he seems to have got back on track now and I fully expect him to score in this match.
