Liverpool will be looking to get back on the goal trail after two successive 0-0 draws against Reading and West Ham. Brendan Rodgers’ men have a decent home record having W4 D1 L1 in their last six games, they also have a pretty impressive record over Chelsea with the H2H record reading W4 D1 L1 of the last six meetings between these two home and away. In fact last time Chelsea beat Liverpool was six games ago back in 2010! Luis Suarez hasn’t scored in four and by his high standards this season he is well due a goal, PaddyPower are offering 11/8 that he can break his duck.
Chelsea come into this game on the back of a very good 0-3 away win against Fulham bringing an end to four games without a win on the road. John Terry came back into the side and managed to score two goals and could well find himself back on the bench. I fully expect Rafa to continue his rotation of his two strikers and Demba Ba to be back in the starting XI. He scored in his last start and can be backed to score at 9/4 with StanJames. Just when you think you can start trusting Chelsea and start backing them again they seem to let you down especially away from home, they have been just too inconsistent this season and with their record against Liverpool I can’t bring myself to back them.
