Betting tips – Liverpool vs Chelsea – 31.01.2017
The most exciting duel of Tuesday evening is without a shadow of doubt Liverpool vs Chelsea. The odds are very well balanced and, surprising or not, the hosts have first chance at the bookies.
Liverpool have shown a really bad form in the past few weeks, coming here after three losses in a row, all of them at Anfield Road, ending their incredible run with more than 12 months without defeat at Anfield. The Cormorans need to win this game to get back in the title race, being ten points behind Chelsea now. Danny Ings and Grujic are still injured, Sakho is still out of the squad, while Mane is expected to be back from African Cup of Nations.
Liverpool probable lineup (4-3-3): Mignolet – Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Milner – Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can – Lallana, Firmino, Coutinho.
Chelsea have made the rules this season in Premier League, leading the table without too many concers in title race. They have eight points more than Arsenal (2nd position), but there are still 16 remaining games so nothing is excluded yet. The Blues lost the reverse fixture, 1-2 at home, so they are hungry for revenge Tuesday evening. Antonio Conte has the luxury of a full squad, without any missing player for this clash.
Chelsea probabile lineup (3-4-3): Courtois – Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill – Moses, Matic, Kante, Alonso – Pedro, Costa, Hazard.
Prediction: 1X @ 1.42
Liverpool are experts in situation like this one. They struggled in the past few weeks, but Klopp is capable to give the players a good morale ahead of an important derby and we expect The Reds to get at least one point here. It’s a risky bet at first view, but we could give a try!
