Liverpool vs Chelsea betting tips and Premier League predictions for the Carabao Cup fixture on Wednesday 26th September. Can Liverpool keep up their winning streak and progress to the next round or will Chelsea stun Anfield?
Few people could argue with the start Liverpool have made to this season – they’ve won all six Premier League fixtures so far and have beaten PSG 3-2 in the Champions League. Chelsea have also had a good start but were held to a 0-0 draw against West Ham at the weekend, the first match this season they haven’t won. CHanges will be made to both teams for this tie, they meet again in the Premier League this weekend in a top of the table clash. We’re going against the bookies for our Liverpool vs Chelsea predictions and betting on under 2.5 goals to be scored. This bet would have won in five of their last six meetings.
Salah 19/17, Sturridge 7/4, Firmino 37/19, Mane 13/8, Hazard 28/11, Giroud 27/11, Keita 31/10, Barkley 23/4 – all odds from UNIBET.
With the expected changes made to both teams, we have to predict who will be in the starting line-ups for both teams. It is likely that Daniel Sturridge will start the match given that Firmino has been struggling with his eye injury. Sturridge started, and scored, in the UEFA Champions League match against PSG and he is likely to lead the line against his old club this week. With that in mind, the second of our football betting tips for Liverpool vs Chelsea in the Carabao Cup this week is Sturridge to score anytime. Another option for this bet would be Oliver Giroud, who is another who should play from the start. He has a good record against the big teams and looks like Chelsea’s most likely goalscorer.
1-1 draw 7/1, Liverpool to win 2-1 15/2, Liverpool to win 1-0 8/1, Liverpool to win 2-1 17/2, Chelsea to win 1-0 13/1, Chelsea to win 2-1 23/2.
We’re already betting on two or fewer goals going in in this match and with the changes to the starting line-ups there may not be the goals everybody always expects in Liverpool fixtures. If this is a tight match then goals could be at a premium but we do still expect both teams to score so the correct score prediction we’re going for to complete our Liverpool vs Chelsea betting tips is a 1-1 draw. These two teams meet again on Saturday and so we don’t have to wait long to see both teams at full strength.
Liverpool to win – 10/11
Draw – 3/1
Chelsea to win – 3/1
It is no surprise to see Liverpool favourites for this match but their recent fixtures have been tight affairs, with two of the last three ending in 1-1 draws. With this in mind we would be betting on the draw from the win-draw-win market.
Both teams are in European competition this season and if the early signs of the Premier League is anything to go by, they could both be involved in a title race too, this brings into question how much they want to be in the Carabao Cup, but there is no doubt that a trophy would not be turned down by either club, manager or fans.
