Bet on Chelsea vs Liverpool: IASbet.com
Sadly for Liverpool fans, their team lost in Week 18 to Manchester City. As a result, Liverpool has lost its brief spot at the top of the competition ladder and moved down into fourth position. Chelsea is in third spot and is coming of a 1-0 win against Swansea.
In head-to-head betting, Chelsea has opened as the even money favourites.

Chelsea is not the most creative scoring team in the competition, preferring to focus on defensive tactics, which is evidenced by its near league leading statistic of allowing just 18 goals to be scored against it. However, Chelsea does have the ability to go on a quick counter attack so Liverpool needs to be wary of this.
Liverpool has a well publicised strike attack led by the in form Luis Suarez. It was unlucky in the Manchester City match when a goal was not awarded due to an alleged mistake by the referee and this could have changed the flavour of the match that ended in a loss to Liverpool.
This is a very tough game to predict. Chelsea has not lost at home and Liverpool’s away record is average. Liverpool has the arsenal to carry out an attacking raid but Chelsea has a solid defence. We are reluctant to tip against Chelsea at home but we like Liverpool and its attack.
