Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

Tammy Abraham netted a sensational hat trick at Molineux, and in him and Mason Mount Chelsea have a very exciting duo of English youngsters. Their thrilling 5-2 win at Wolves last weekend was a high point of Lampards time at Chelsea, and it was a welcome return from the international break after a disappointing draw against Sheffield United before.

The defeat was Chelseas heaviest since a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City back in February. In comparison to the Merseysiders, Chelseas season could not have got off to a worse possible start. The team then will be doing their upmost to avoid back-to-back defeats for the first time since March 2018. Under new boss Frank Lampard, the Blues were humbled 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford despite not putting in a disastrous performance.

Goal Margins

Liverpool are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Chelsea and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. The Reds, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Newcastle United 3-1 in their last league fixture, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah helping Jurgen Klopps team keep their 100% record in the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign intact.

Frank Lampards troops aim to rejoin the race for the title and we predict that they will go for a win in Sundays showdown in London.

They lost 4-0 to a rampant Manchester United, and while the scoreline was fairly harsh on Chelsea, there is no doubt that they have to improve in the future. Improvement in the very immediate future would be preferable, because an openness to counter attacking football doesnt bode well when faced with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino.

Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of 11 million.

Reigning Europa League champions Chelsea made their return to the Champions League in midweek, but it didnt exactly go smoothly for Frank Lampards side. Now, the 2 beaten European champions go head to head in the Premier League, and both will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeats. They lost 1-0 at home to Valencia, although that indignity was softened by the fact that Champions League holders Liverpool also succumbed to defeat.

Liverpool -

They also won the UEFA Super Cup in 2001 and 1977, with another win this time around seeing them draw level with Spanish giants Real Madrid. Heading into the game, reigning European champions Liverpool have the chance to become the joint third most successful club in Super Cup history. The Reds have appeared in five editions of the match, last running out victors in 2005 as they overcame Russian outfit CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Monaco. Of course, they will be extremely confident going into the match having memorably lifted the UEFA Champions League against fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur back in June.

Chelsea fans will be wanting a reaction from their team following their humbling against Manchester United at the weekend. Whilst they will create a few problems for the Reds, that will not be forthcoming on Wednesday night. Jurgen Klopps team have far too much quality for their opponents and whilst it should be an entertaining match, Liverpool will run out relatively comfortable winners.

The Reds aim to build on a 4-1 win over Norwich City in the opening match of the new Premier League campaign and seeing that Jurgen Klopp welcomes Sadio Mane back to the starting line-up, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League winners. Liverpool and Chelsea face each other at Vodafone Park in an all-England UEFA Super Cup clash.

Adrian was called on that day and is likely to start in goal. One big loss for the Reds will be the absence of stopper Alisson after the Brazilian picked up an injury in the victory over the Canaries. Full-back Nathaniel Clyne remains ruled out with a cruciate ligament injury that is likely to restrict him the sidelines for the majority of the campaign. Mo Salah will be keen to extend his promising start to the season after getting off to the perfect start with a goal at the weekend.
