Chelsea (@3.75) vs Liverpool (@2.0)

Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

Tammy Abraham netted a sensational hat trick at Molineux, and in him and Mason Mount Chelsea have a very exciting duo of English youngsters. Their thrilling 5-2 win at Wolves last weekend was a high point of Lampards time at Chelsea, and it was a welcome return from the international break after a disappointing draw against Sheffield United before.

They lost 4-0 to a rampant Manchester United, and while the scoreline was fairly harsh on Chelsea, there is no doubt that they have to improve in the future. Improvement in the very immediate future would be preferable, because an openness to counter attacking football doesnt bode well when faced with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino.

The Blues, on the other hand, continue life without Belgian superstar Eden Hazard and considering that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United at the weekend, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Liverpools party in Istanbul. In their last meeting in a competitive game Jurgen Klopps men emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Mohamed Salah and Co.

This Week's Promos

It is fair to say that the Blues were missing some key members of their squad in the defeat to the Red Devils at the weekend but they could be boosted by a few returnees. Although, the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger all remain on the sidelines. Willian was struggling with a hamstring injury but should be cleared to return for the trip to Turkey. NGolo Kante has also picked up a small injury so is a slight doubt.

It has to be noted that he was named Romas player of the season (2015/2016). After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone.

Frank Lampard suffered a devastating 4-0 blow at the hands of Manchester United. The fact they made 18 goal attempts and failed to score this weekend, speaks volumes of their ineptitude at the moment. On the other side, Chelsea endured a terrible start to their new Premier League campaign. Ultimately, Chelsea are struggling with goal conversion. Former Chelsea player is going through all sorts of problems including the transfer ban and the fact he lost two important players this summer.

The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.

Our prediction for this Premier League match:

Considering the contrasting weekend performances from these teams, a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopps men looks to be on the cards. We like the look of a Liverpool -1 Handicap Win, and were opting for an emphatic 3-0 scoreline in Istanbul too. In addition, 10 of Liverpools 12 competitive matches have seen them win by at least a 2 goal margin, including a 2-0 win over Chelsea back in April.

Chelsea fans will be wanting a reaction from their team following their humbling against Manchester United at the weekend. Whilst they will create a few problems for the Reds, that will not be forthcoming on Wednesday night. Jurgen Klopps team have far too much quality for their opponents and whilst it should be an entertaining match, Liverpool will run out relatively comfortable winners.
