Chelsea Vs Liverpool Betting Tips
Chelsea Vs Liverpool: 20th September 2020 Tips
We reach the biggest game of the weekend as two sides who perhaps had bigger challenges than they may have imagined go head to head as Chelsea (who beat Brighton 3-1) take on Liverpool (who beat Leeds United 4-3), neither side looked particularly solid defensively but we’re solid offensively. If there was any doubt over who Liverpool’s main player was Mohamed Salah proved them wrong with a hat-trick on the opening day, two of those goals may have been penalties but the Egyptian showed a hunger to get on the ball and score that was missing last year. However, the question remains of whether Chelsea’s new acquisitions will push them to the next level, on paper Chelsea’s squad looks significantly better than it did but I would argue it is still far from Liverpools. I actually thought Kai Havertz put in a professional performance at the week and it was his selflessness off the ball which helped Reece James have the impact he did. However, my opinion doesn’t seem to be shared by many people. In individual games, these two sides were evenly matched last season which is why this is a game that is very difficult to call. However, these are my three top betting tips for the game of the week.
This is a bet for us that could come as fantastic value, Mo Salah looked fantastic against Leeds and Timo Werner was Chelsea’s most dangerous player against Brighton. These are the two players I believe are most likely to score in this game and backing one is likely but backing both is good value.
If you base your stats on the previous matches between the two sides, under 3.5 goals may seem about right. However, we can see both of these sides scoring and it wouldn’t surprise us if the attacks absolutely obliterated the defences and this game finished 5-3.
Defensively, Chelsea are weakest down the left side of the pitch and if we’re honest they aren’t the most commanding team from set pieces which means that despite putting in a poor performance against Leeds, Trent could do a lot better here.
