Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea outfit still remain unbeaten from their nine matches in all competitions under his tutelage.
A goalless draw against Man Utd at the weekend is perhaps as much as they could’ve hoped for from that game, but that does now mean they’ve drawn back-to-back encounters in the league following a spell of four straight wins.
For the second time this season, Liverpool have earned just three points from their last five outings, and we certainly aren’t going to get too carried away by their 2-0 victory over rock-bottom Sheffield Utd last time out. They did create a multitude of chances in that game though, testing Aaron Ramsdale who did have an excellent game, but with eight shots on target it’s no surprise they eventually got on the scoresheet.
This looks like a difficult game to call. The Blues look incredibly difficult to beat at the minute, with them conceding just two goals from their nine matches under Tuchel across all competitions and their three most difficult fixtures over this period have seen just two goals across them, visiting Spurs (1-0), Atletico Madrid (1-0) and Man Utd (0-0).
However, Spurs have shown they can set up extremely defensively this term, the Spanish side stuck to the classic Diego Simone’s low scoring nature and the Red Devils have proven time and time again this term that they’re happy to grind out a 0-0 draw against the top sides.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges will have to overcome the fact they’ve lost four on the bounce at Anfield in the league for the first time since 1923.
That must be playing on the players’ minds, while you have to go back seven games to when they beat Spurs in mid-December for their last win here.
Just two goals of their own over that spell is a serious concern too, especially with one of which coming against the leakiest defence in the league, West Brom, while the other came from the penalty spot and we’d be concerned of their chances of getting on the scoreboard.
Multibet – Chelsea To Win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1
Of course, a victory last weekend should spur them on, but you’d have thought that after they beat Leipzig in the Champions League a fortnight ago in Germany they’d have put in a better performance when losing to local rivals Everton 2-0, and we could be in for a very similar story this Thursday night.
Chelsea look a tempting price considering the circumstances of their respective forms, and perhaps the best angle is getting behind them with a few options.
Only Man City have netted more than twice against the hosts here from their 16 home games across all competitions dating back to mid-September, while all six of Chelsea’s wins under current management have finished either 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1, and that looks the bet of the match.
