25/02: Daily Predictions: Chelsea vs Liverpool

Betting Tips

In a rematch of the 2021–22 EFL Cup final, Chelsea and Liverpool will face off at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon, vying for the first domestic title of the 2023–24 season. Jurgen Klopp’s side broke Blues hearts with a penalty shootout two years ago and are most people’s picks to send their opponents home empty-handed once more, even though their absence list already numbers in the double digits.

Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea enters this game unbeaten after three games, with creditable wins against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, as well as a tough 1-1 draw at Manchester City last weekend. Before those three games, the Londoners had suffered two crushing defeats: 4-2 at home to Wolves and 4-1 at Anfield against today’s opponents, Liverpool.

Overall, Chelsea’s fortunes have improved during the last few months, particularly in cup competitions. Mauricio Pochettino will seek to tighten up the defense. In their last five games, the Londoners have conceded 11 goals and scored 10.

Liverpool enters this game with a chance of winning four titles in Jurgen Klopp’s final season with the club. The Reds, like Chelsea, are still in the FA Cup, where they face Southampton in the fifth round next week; they are also in the Europa League Round of 16; and, of course, they are top of the Premier League and will play in the final on Sunday. Despite the huge injury list, Liverpool has continued to win despite numerous players being injured or missing time in recent weeks.

Verdict

Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over Chelsea ended a peculiar and lengthy run of ties between the two teams. Ignoring the Reds’ penalty shootout victories, the previous seven games were draws, with four of them ending goalless.

Pochettino’s side may probably attempt to frustrate a Klopp team devastated by injuries in recent weeks, and they could have some success, especially if they score first.

However, their unpredictability, combined with Liverpool’s superb run all year, with only four defeats across all competitions, makes the current Premier League leaders favorites for the first piece of silverware in the English top-flight season.

Both sides have scored in each of the Reds’ last seven games in all competitions, whereas Chelsea has had both teams score in their last five, therefore, I anticipate Liverpool to win but fail to preserve a clean sheet.

Liverpool’s habit of conceding at least once in every EFL Cup game this season should continue against the resurgent Blues, but defense is not the main issue for Liverpool, whose chances of victory will undoubtedly suffer if none of Salah, Nunez, or Szoboszlai make the cut.

However, Klopp’s faith in academy prospects and periphery players has resulted in some lesser-known individuals stepping up when necessary, and with Chelsea unable to break their domestic cup final curse, the comeback kings in red remain our small favorites to win the trophy.
